John Lee Erwin (born December 5, 1936) is a voice actor known for voicing Morris the Cat and He-Man.

Career[edit]

Erwin was the voice of He-Man in the Filmation production He-Man and the Masters of the Universe that ran from 1983 to 1985. Due to the extreme cost-cutting by Filmation,[citation needed] the cast of voice actors was small, and producer Lou Scheimer actually performed the bulk of the character voices. Erwin was also the voice of the henchman-character Beast-Man and would on occasion do the voices of other supporting characters as well, such as Webstor and Ram-Man.

Although generally recognized for his work on He-Man, Erwin has many years of voice acting to his credit (including, but not limited to, the voice of Reggie Mantle in Filmation's Archie cartoon), and has provided voice work for many productions ranging from television advertisements to live action movies since the 1960s.

From 1959 to 1965, he starred as Teddy in the Television Western Rawhide, the show which launched Clint Eastwood's career.
