I’ve worked in the Time Warner family for over 22 years. First with The WB Television Network- and Kids’ WB specifically, for nearly the entire time it was on-air. And then when The WB went away The CW Television Network was created. The funny thing is – I drove to the same Ranch Lot, parked in the same parking spot, went to the same office, and did the same things. A totally seamless transition.
The big difference, you ask? Um, the logo. That was almost the only thing that changed haha.

I also try to give credit where credit is due if I was not the sole animator/producer/director on a given spot. I have zero desire to take credit for other people’s work.
