Kid’s Day a HUGE Success! – 3. December, 2008

The first annual Children’s Day was a huge success! About 50,000 kids of all ages showed up at Woodley Park in Van Nuys to celebrate this momentous holiday that has finally come to the United States, one of only two countries in the world that does not acknowledge the holiday (the other is Somalia).

Event-Image-2There were more stars there than in the sky! Fritz Coleman, from KNBC-TV, was an amazing host and kept the ball rolling from early morning until the last act left the stage. There were lots of kids from Disney Channel shows as well as young performers singing and dancing their way into people’s hearts. With such a tight-knit community of voice-actors at my disposal, I got the help from some of the best: Candi Milo (The Replacements, Jimmy Neutron), Tara Strong (The Rugrats, The Powerpuff Girls), Jeff Snow (animator, Tarzan, Mulan, Shrek 2), Richard Horvitz (Kim Possible, The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers), Rob Paulsen (Animaniacs, Pinky & the Brain), Grey Delisle (The Fairly Odd Parents, What’s New, Scooby-Doo?), Maurice LaMarche (Futurama, Animaniacs) and E.G. Daily (The Powerpuff Girls, Happy Feet). We did all our voices on stage and then signed autographs for 2 hours! A dedicated and very animated group! (more…)

Will Your child Make the Right Choices in Life? – 3. December, 2008

by Nancy Cartwright

My daughter recently got married. She and her high school sweetheart tied the knot in August and are working together and making their own decisions now on a daily basis. My son, at 17, is still in high school and living at home and I continue to guide him, although I let him make most of his decisions based on “the greatest good for all,” and this has been an operating basis for me in raising them all along. So far he hasn’t held me to ransom and he hasn’t used the fact that I am the voice of Bart Simpson against me for which I am very grateful, however it does bring up the question: “What is the measurement of a parent’s success when it comes to raising a child?” (more…)

Donkaphant or Elephonkey? – 16. November, 2008

donka2Nancy was honored to be invited to host the Donkaphant Film Festival at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles. Yes, that’s right—Donkaphant. Nancy suggested that perhaps it should be called Elephonkey! Put on by YOUnited Foundation, it is an independent film festival “for the people, by the people,” celebrating short films that feature stories about freedom, the political process and the trials and tribulations of people and our planet. The YOUnited Foundation’s mission is “to maximize the power of film and use the art form to inspire, educate, motivate and stimulate communities into action.” Other non-profit organizations were also represented and supplied films for the festival, including Happy House, Heal the Bay, Direct the Relief International, Jacaranda Foundation, Legalize LA, National Parkinson Foundation, Tree People, Youth Policy Institute, California Forward and others.

MONTE CARLO #3 – 5. October, 2008

Dear Friends and Fans,

MONTE CARLO #3—WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

As I sit here in my “bird’s nest”, a.k.a. my office, overlooking my one acre lot, I breathe a sigh of relief knowing that my lawn will one day be green and lush again.  At this writing, it was just one week ago that a crowd of people of various financial, cultural and civic-minded backgrounds paid their entry fees and were ushered onto my property to celebrate the 3rd Annual Monte Carlo Night!
