Disney's "The 7D" -- Some of the Crew Members -- Part 1

For the past year or so, I've been working with an incredible team of artists, directors, writers, actors, musicians, producers and creative network execs on a new animated series called "The 7D," which will premier on Disney Junior sometime in 2014.   Here are just a few of the characters who have come together to help make this show happen...

Above:  an afternoon stroll by some of the crew, including (left to right) Paul Rugg (writer and the voice of Lord Starchbottom), Randy Rogel (series writer), Charles Visser (series director), Roger Eschbacher (writer), Deanna Oliver (series writer), Carson Kugler (storyboard artist), Kevin Frank (storyboard artist), Alfred Gimeno (series director), David Shair (storyboard revisions), Sherri Stoner (story editor and writer), Barry Caldwell (storyboard artist) and Roger Dondis (storyboard supervisor).

Lunch at the Sonora campus commissary with Kevin Michael Richardson , series composer Parry Gripp, and Emily Hart, who is the network executive on the series.  In addition to her creative input on The 7D, Emily is also Disney Junior's Executive Director of Programming. 

Series art director Frank Montagna and background designer Brad Gake.  

Writer Paul Rugg is given brilliant script notes by a visiting Amish woman.


  1. Thanks Tom, great to see the gang again!

  2. THAT TEAM is going to give a great breath of life to that cartoon! I can't wait to see how it turns out! Are there any veteran voice actors on board that we might recognize (besides Paul Rugg)?

    With the most important players from the Tiny Toon crew there, you just KNOW it's going to be off the hook! :)

  3. Oh gosh, Parry Gripp... the nom nom song guy.

    I used that song of his (repeated a zillion times) for my "Super Wild Action Movie" several years ago --

  4. Any familiar voice actors involved?
