At the Toronto Transformers Con and Anime Expo in 2004, I met Michael Dobson. I was dressed as Mario and asked him about a show he worked on, Silverwing. My dad and I got to chat for a few minutes with him after the Q&A session and he was overall really awesome.
Fast forward to 2011, at Anime North. I go up to meet him once again and say it's nice to see him after so long. He asked if we've met, and I told him "I was the Mario who asked about Silverwing." His face immediately lit up with a big smile of recognition and he shook my hand and said it's great to see me again. He then told me that if I hadn't asked him about Silverwing that day back in 2004, he might not have remembered me--I'm the only fan who's ever brought up the show to him.
He and his brother Brian then signed my DVD I brought for them, and Michael let me have two photos taken with him as an extra treat. It was well worth the hour of waiting in line.
