Ron Clements & John Musker

Ron Clements & John Musker

Ron Clements and John Muskar, are the men behind such classics as, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Hercules, Treasure Planet the Frog and the Princess, and more. Besides having amazing films to their names, the two are a hilarious comedy duo. During their award presentations, they had the audience laughing at every turn. But what surprised me the  most was when these two incredibly talented men, stood out on the Annie stage, and thanked me for all my years of announcing. I really didn’t think anyone noticed, but did they proved me wrong. I can’t thank them enough for their kind words. I am sincerely touched. I look forward to seeing them again next year and honestly, I hope I get to work with them in between!

Fan’s 1st Birthday

I was tickled pink yesterday, when the producers of It’s a Small World sent us a letter from a family. They decorated their daughter’s 1st birthday with all the characters and pictures from our animated series. What an amazing feeling to be told you are a happy part of a family’s celebration. Happy Birthday Makenzie!  You made my day too!

http://video.disney.com/watch/just-one-moonep-ep-8-it-s-a-small-world-4f1867aae1949dacf5e26015The It’s A Small World kids go to China. Ashley (me) finally gets to attend to her fashionista side!  These episodes are so sweet. I have heard through the grapevine, that even though there was a huge layoff at Disney Interactive, this show is not dead in the water. Rosetta Stone loves the series and there still could be another season or more. I sure hope so. It really was a great group of talented people to work with, and the shows are wonderful. No offence to Adult Swim programming, but this I’m not afraid to show my kids or parents.

I’m hoping to play these characters for another season. Rumor on the street is all positive, still waiting for the final word. This series is just too cute, and there are so many more places to go and see. What are some place you would like to visit, or your favorite place you’ve already seen?

It’s A Small World Goes to Africa

We visit Africa

We visit Africa

This is a sweet little episode where we help a baby rhino find her way home. I also voiced the rhino, and trust me there were many more snorfles, snuffs, and raspberries in the recording session. I’m sure the outtake reel is hilarious.  The sounds they picked are adorable and I’m glad I can now add rhino to my reel! 🙂
