YOU CAN’T ESCAPE YOUR PAST: SIDNEY’S PICTURE

We  did a lot of time travel episodes in X-MEN:TAS.  Always intriguing, always hard to keep the logic straight. We have all had moments when we wished we could go back in time and change something.  Well, I have living proof here that the key hands-on executive of Fox’s golden age of TV animation might have just such a desire.  Sidney Iwanter (“I want her!”) personally lorded it over such timeless treasures as Beetlejuice, Batman:TAS, X-MEN:TAS, The Tick, and Spider-Man.  Hundreds of half-hours of subversive childhood memories were affected by one addled visionary.  We can thank/blame his boss Margaret Loesch for letting him loose on hundreds of millions of impressionable young minds.  Despite his impact, Sidney is an elusive creature — little is known about him, and images are few.  That’s why, when I discovered a high school photo in a ’90s Fox Kids magazine, I couldn’t resist sharing it.  Seeing that haunting adolescent image today, I’m sure Sidney would love to go back to 1967 and change many things.  Maybe Forge can build him a time machine.  I’d watch that episode.
