Hey all you pre-school kiddies!!!! I thought I'd draw something that sort of represents my pre-school days on the animation playground here at Nickelodeon Animation. It's a lot of fun, and I would say producing and directing Dora the Explorer, Go Diego Go and Ni Hao Kai lan are the most rewarding challenges in my career. I've been here at Nickelodeon since 2000 and have been involved with about 250 episodes of pre-school. Thinking and "reverse engineering" your film-making knowledge to adapt to a pre-schooler's way of thinking and vision is an amazing process. The bottom line is that kids love the shows and it changes their lives everyday! As my good friend and mentor said, "We're all fake adults" for we all have little kids inside all of us!" Take care gang and I'll see you all out on the playground. HA! HA! HA! HA! Your Pre-school Pals.....Dora, Kai lan, Diego and your pre-school pal......Jeff
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ED "BIG DADDY" ROTH!
