What is your name and your current occupation? 
Jeffrey Scott.  Screenwriter.

What are some of the crazier jobs you had before getting into animation? 
I was a portrait photographer in high school.  I got one job.  The guy hated the pics so much he refused to pay me.  Not at all crazy, but I also inked comic books for Disney, Warners, Hanna-Barbera and Lantz characters.

What are some of your favorite projects you’re proud to have been a part of? 
Number one by far would be my work on Jim Henson’s Muppet Babies, for which I won three Emmys and the Humanitas Prize.  Working with Jim was a true pleasure.  I later wrote a live-action screenplay for him, but sadly he passed before we could make the film.
How did you become interested in animation?

Where are you from and how did you get into the animation business? 
I was born in Hollywood into a show biz family.  My grandfather was Moe Howard of The Three Stooges.  Continue…
