I think back to my many influences as a child. I have had some major influences that have directed the course of my life and led me to where I am today. Some of those influences include shows such as . . .
- Twlight Zone
- Krofft Super Show
- Muppet Show
- Sesame Street
- Electric Company
- SchoolHouse Rock
- Pippi Longstocking
- anything Disney
- Brady Bunch and Gilligan's Island
Some other influences have been . . .
- Mad magazine
- Awesome All Stars monster baseball cards
- King Kong, Godzilla, Rodan, and all those cheesy monster movies
- Universal Monsters such as Frankenstein, Wolman, Dracula, and the Mummy
- music from my moms old 45' collection (paul anka, elvis, neil sedaka, and others)
- Jim Hensen, Walt Disney, Tex Avery, Rod Serling, The Nine Old Men, Bob Dorough,
I grew up in the greatest age of entertainment and television. Nothing now can come close to what I watched every Saturday on the Saturday Morning cartoons. I worry about what my kids will watch. I worry that entertainment is corrupting our kids.
so I create.
For the past 15 years, I have been in creation mode. I have written story after story. I have individual binders for each idea, project, animated show, and storybook. I am now moving into a producing mode, where I am moving forward with the production of these ideas.
I am more than ready.
I want to provide good, clean and memorable entertainment for kids. The kind that I enjoyed growing up watching.
They deserve it!
