What is your name and your current occupation? Wade Wisinski, Line Producer, The Looney Tunes Show, Warner Bros. Animation. What are some of the crazier jobs you had before getting into animation?
I owned and operated a chain or retail comic book stores. The shop in Newhall, CA is still there with fabulous new ownership – Brave New World – check it out. If you have ever spent any quality time in a comic book store, you may get a pretty good idea of what it would be like to work, live, eat, and sleep in one. All of the stereotypes are true.
What are some of your favorite projects you’re proud to have been a part of?
All of them pretty much. I’ve been fortunate to have begun working on Kevin Smith’s Clerks, then the first three seasons of Kim Possible, The Spectacular Spider-Man (my favorite Spider-Man interpretation by far…). Most recently some classic character takes – Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated and The Looney Tunes Show.

I am Robert Anderson. My current occupation is Producer. I can’t tell you where and on what as I will have to shoot you all.
What are some of the crazier jobs you had before getting into animation? Sadly I have only a few jobs that are outside of the film business. I started working on live action films at the age of 16. I did work at McDonald’s for a time and I am a firm believer that this job alone prepared me for the world of Project Management. Try doing the Quarter Pounder counter for a bus load of senior citizens and you will understand.
What are some of your favorite projects you’re proud to have been a part of? I am proud of many but the ones that stick out the most are Untalkative bunny & Three Delivery. I was Line Producer on the first and Producer on the second. Both were hell and awesome at the same time. A perfect storm of a collection of amazing talent and Force Major to the extreme. I am sure I have written about some of it somewhere…
