Sarge Morton has died of a heart attack a few days ago. I'm a friend of his and I knew he used to post on this forum. This news is really sad and terrifying. frown

A memory pops up.

It was before the great off-topic crash, so the post can not be found anymore. It was an offtopic about captions of some sort, something where you write an imaginary personal ad.

My post went something like this:
 
Quote
You wanna piece of me?
Call 1-800-LEPER

To which Sarge replied:
 
Quote
Every once in a while, something on the Internet actually makes me laugh out loud

And that, ladies and gentlemen, was one of my most cherished posts. I made a Futurama staff member laugh. I made Sarge Morton laugh.  What an honour.

Now I'm going over to ImDB to register, to tell them this sad news.

So suspiciously close to April fool's, I already asked a mod to confirm that Bell's and Sarge's profile, e-mail address or I.P. didn't match. Tweek checked and they are not specifically the same. I also asked Slimmy to check, but he didn't want to. (Maybe the mods are conspiring with Sarge who is still alive?)

Or, Sarge could have registered from another computer in order to fake his own death on an Internet message board?

...Or, Sarge, who hasn't posted here in a while, is still alive, but another person thought this was an appropriate joke.

Damn.  Mr. Morton used to hang around the No Homers Club board too.

Very sad thing.  frown At least his legacy will be carried on through his Futurama/Simpsons work.

I'm sorry to here that. You know someone was a great guy, when everyone still talks about him months after he stops posting regularly.   frown

Sarge used to post here before I was a member, can anyone tell me what he did on the show?

Animator on both shows.  Someone else can fill us in on his exact role in that regard though.

He was a character layout artist. You'll see his name in the credits of some Season 4 episodes.

He was a character layout artist during the 4ACV production. You can spot his name in several credits.

Remember all those robots on the Galapagos Islands in "Crimes Of The Hot"? Sarge did those.

Edit: Sarge's first post on PEEL. He explain a bit more about his job on the show, and some of the figures/scenes he did (all in general terms).
