Butch Hartman joins us On The Dean's List.

Hartman is a well respected animator, writer, director, producer, illustrator and voice actor, best known for creating the Emmy-winning animated series The Fairly OddParents, Danny Phantom, and T.U.F.F. Puppy on the Nickelodeon family of networks.  We will talk about his body of work as well as the creative and collaborative processes that go into producing a half hour animated television program. 

Hartman, along with his wife Julieann, has also founded Hartman House; which travels to developing nations and some of the more poverty stricken areas in the United States, has built homes for families in Guatemala, fed nearly families with Thanksgiving meals in the U.S., and is developing a school in Africa. Hartman uses his talent to draw and autograph pictures of his animated shows for hundreds of children at these events. For more information: http://www.hartmanhouse.org/

Hartman is a native of Southeastern Michigan, and we will ask him to share his memories of growing in the Detroit area and offer his takes on several different subjects.
