RIP Tom Kennedy

West Hills, CALIF.–Tom Kennedy, a creative executive who was best known in the film industry as a successful writer, producer and director of hundreds of movie trailers, died Dec. 7 here at the West Hills Hospital & Medical Center. He was 63.
MSTies will remember the one feature film he directed, “Time Walker,” a re-edited version of which appeared in episode 405- BEING FROM ANOTHER PLANET.

A full obit is here.

    Rest in peace Mr. Kennedy.

    Although Time Walker wasn’t the greatest film, it did show us that despite preconceptions, the combination of the Horror and Sci-fi film genres can actually be used to induce sleep.

    Bravo sir, and have a good and well-deserved rest.

    I love the guaca-mummy episode and that thing in it “that’s driving the plot to nowhere”. I hope we get Being From Another Planet on DVD soon.

    Thank you, Tom, for making breasts look really unappealing.

    If you, like me, are a game show lover, rest assured this is not Tom Kennedy the legendary game show host (Name That Tune, You Don’t Say, etc.)

    RIP to the “other” Tom Kennedy. I have to check out some of those trailers now.

    Big Blue Marble editor. Must have been a wonderful show to work on.

    I read the headline too fast and thought it said “RIP Tom Kenny”. For a shocking split-second, I thought we’d lost the voice of SpongeBob SquarePants.
