so this came up on the facebook page Bah-weep-Graaaaagnah wheep ni ni bong and they said this “Optimus Prime has been a surrogate father figure to many children for 30 years now. He deserves it too“ The original artist is unknown.
So yeah its Fathers day here…(at least in the US, do other countries do it too?). People find this strange coming from a young adult, but Transformers, especially Optimus has always been a constant in my life, has guided me. You may or may not learn things from watching the cartoons, depends on you…but I believe Optimus taught me a lot that my dad didn’t…so Optimus is like a second father for me. And the famous voice actor Peter Cullen knows this, that was something covered at his BotCon 2012 panel, he knows he’s become a father figure for generations of kids.
So with that Happy Fathers day to Optimus (Peter Cullen) and all the awesome fathers in the world!
