  1. That's pretty cool, do they still talk in character when they talk to each other? XD

  2. Sherri can break into Slappy's voice at will and does so to hilarious comic effect. Nate's voice is now much deeper than Skippy's, so for him it's a bit tougher.

  3. I do recall recently Sherri wrote online in character to Nate, when he was about to get the red-carpet treatment at the Temecula Valley Film Festival for his Another Life film.

  9. I honestly love Slappy and Skippy and the Branimaniacs sketch. Great to see these endearing characters in person. Love Slappy especially; she's a fantastic character.

  10. Currently working at Disney Television Animation on a new animated comedy series called "The 7D" -- featuring new versions of the 7 dwarfs...same names, but new voices and new designs -- and full on comedy. It's going to be a lot of fun. Working on it alongside Sherri Stoienr, Alfred Gimeno, John McCann, and Randy Rogel.

  11. This past Christmas, my family played the numbers game for giving out gifts, and my mom got a box of branimaniacs, which I made out of a posterboard, glue, and an empty corn pops box. I had just shown the Branimaniacs short to my mom a few weeks before and she loved it, she got the box and she's apparently keeping it too.
