Windsor, ON. Ronnie Schell will make his first-ever Canadian appearance at the Northern National Collectors’ Convention at Caesars Windsor from September 29 to October 1, 2023.Presented by Brimstone Games, the convention will feature the Cartoon Kingdom Fan Experience.

Schell; who emerged as a standout comedian through the night club circuit, is best known for his portrayal of Duke, a main character on Gomer Pyle: USMC (1964-69). He also led G-Force as the voice G-2: Jason the Condor in Battle of the Planets (1978-80), the team’s second-in-command, marksman, and weapons expert. Other voice portrayals included that of the lead character Rick Raccoon in Shirt Tales (1982-83), various Smurfs through the self-entitled hit series (1982-88), and as Peter Puck (1973), a talking hockey puck who discussed the nature, rules, officials, and history of the sport of hockey.

“I look forward to attending the Northern National this fall in Canada,” says Schell. “I can’t wait to interact with fans from Canada and the US!”

“We are excited to welcome Ronnie Schell to the Northern National,” says its President, Jeremy Renaud. “Fans of both Gomer Pyle and Battle of the Planets will have an incredible opportunity to meet a classic hero during this extremely rare appearance!”
