At the beginning of his career, Loubert published "The Great Canadian Comic Books", a 1971 book focusing on the early days of local comic lore, with partner Michael Hirsh. Under the alias of "Speed Savage", which was the name of an obscure comic book hero, he wrote the 1972 live-action cult film, "Voulez-vous coucher avec God?". With Don Haig, he scripted and directed "125 Rooms of Comfort", another live-action project, in 1974. He also produced the first season of "Inspector Gadget" (1983-86) for DIC Entertainment with show's creator Jean Chalopin (The first season was animated and co-produced by Nelvana), "Gargoyles: The Goliath Chronicles" for Disney and Buena Vista, the adventure game "Toonstruck" and the 1993 American thriller film "Malice" (starring Alec Baldwin, Nicole Kidman and Bill Pullman) and worked as a storyboard artist and story writer for Nelvana's first feature length film "Rock and Rule" and executive story editor for the third "Care Bears" feature film in 1987, called "The Care Bears Adventure in Wonderland". He also created the Nelvana live-action television series, which are "The Edison Twins" and "T and T" (starring Mr. T) with Michael Hirsh and wrote scripts for the company's first two animated specials "A Cosmic Christmas" and "The Devil and Daniel Mouse" as well as "Babar: The Movie" (1989).
