Today is a date that I can truly say fits one of my youngest daughter’s likes: it is the 49th birthday of the creator of Sonic the Hedgehog, Mr. Yuji Naka, born on this date in 1965. He is also credited with the creation of the Phantasy Star video game series as well as being a programmer for the classic game Ghouls & Ghosts. He has been in the industry since 1983 and I (as well as my daughter) wish him nothing but continued success.
Also on the menu of today’s “twins” are country music legend Hank Williams, Sr. (1923-1953), Planet of the Apes (the original) star Roddy McDowall (1928-1998), legendary actress Anne Bancroft (1931-2005), The Jeffersons‘ Mr. Bentley, actor Paul Benedict (1938-2008), and basketball coach of legend, Mr. Phil Jackson was born in 1945.
Late comedian John Ritter (1948-2003), comedienne Rita Rudner (1953), puppeteer pariah Kevin Clash (played Elmo, among others) was born in 1960, King’s X guitarist Ty Tabor (1961), and former Red Ranger Austin St. John was born in 1974.
