On Wednesday, August 10, 2022, we attended an exclusive premiere of Disney’s Hamster and Gretel in Glendale, California! Bailey Rae and the girls had a blast! It was a day filled with laughter, creativity, good food and the perfect family tv show.
This 2-D animated superhero comedy series was created by Dan Povenmire, the co-creator of the Emmy award-winning, Phineas and Ferb . On August 12th, the show airs on Disney Channel, and on August 17th, it airs on Disney Plus.
The show is produced by Disney Television Animation with the help of Snipple Animation and Synergy Animation.
It is certain that this family television show, Hamster and Gretel, will be filled with a number of humorous and comedic episodes.
It was all laughter watching Melissa Povenmire, his 14-year-old daughter, plays the role of Gretel Gomez. Her role is a strong independent youngest that is fearless.
In their home studio, she expressed how much she enjoyed working with her dad in the booth.
The Dan Povenmire Perspective
As Dan spoke with Kristin Cruz, the brilliant powerhouse, Moms In Media CEO , about why he loves and respects content creators on TikTok and social media, a huge smile spread across his face.
Furthermore, Dan Povenmire shared that he completes his TV show projects in their entirety before submitting them to the network.
According to Animation Magazine, interview with Dan, just as he spoke about at the premiere, it has never been a more egalitarian time for people to put their content out into the world.
“If you want to make cartoons or any kind of entertainment, you can do it and find an audience. You don’t need to wait for a studio to hire you like I had to when I was entering the field. Dan stated, “if you do good work there will be eyeballs on it, and create your portfolio on TikTok, Youtube, and other social media platforms.”
Wow, hearing Dan speak about this was beyond inspiring for me and am sure for all content creators.
Doodling animation genius, Dan taught us all how to draw Hamster, whose voice is brilliantly performed by Beck Bennett from Saturday Night Live. It was such an unforgettable moment of Dan autographing their own artwork and doing a few Tiktok dance moves with the girls.
