Minions Holiday Special

November 28, 2020
A minion thanks to everyone who helped me make the first-ever Minions Holiday Special!
Directing/producing for animation was a total kick – especially since I’ve always ❤️‘ed the Minions.
(And I’m so proud that the show was a big ratings hit, besting Frosty and also Santa Claus is Coming To Town. To even be airing at the same time as those classics was an honor, or perhaps, a one in minion opportunity. heh, heh).
