Over the course of this episode, listeners will learn about:

How Matthew A. Cherry plans on expanding “Hair Love,” that Academy Award-winning short, into an animated television for HBO Max

When Jeffrey Katzenberg was obsessed with recruiting A-listers to voice characters in all of the animated features he was producing

How “Close Enough” was originally supposed to be part of an animation programming block on TBS but lost that berth due to Louis C.K.

Why you really don’t want to start off Guillermo del Toro’s “Tales of Arcadia” trilogy by watching “Wizards”

How the other animation studios reacted when Disney was awarded a five year exclusive on Technicolor’s three-strip-camera process
