Tonight’s Drink and Draw was a blast! It was fun to run into peeps, and of course to see Fred Seibert. Fred and I go way back. He was the executive producer of the shorts program “Random Cartoons” where both Yaki and Yumi and Girls on the GO! were born. But I also knew of him long ago when I was an intern at Hanna-Barbera. He had launched his first shorts program, "What a Cartoon" while I was there…and in my mind I thought of him as "the guy who made cool stuff happen." Years later after working in the world of features, I got my first job in T.V. at Nickelodeon on Frederator’s "Chalk Zone" (created by Larry Huber..whom I have to thank for giving me my break). I saw Fred in the hallways, and thought "There’s the guy who makes cool stuff happen" and decided to introduce myself. Fred has "made cool stuff happen" for me, and countless others, and continues to do so! Hooray for Fred!
