Well, I spent six or seven years after high school trying to work myself up. Shipping clerk, salesman, business of one kind or another. And it’s a measly manner of existence.

I feel like the best kids shows aren’t just for kids. The best kids shows have something in it for everyone. As you grow up, you’re increasingly proud to be a fan of the show, rather than getting to an age where you suddenly become embarrassed that you ever liked it because it’s only for seven-year-olds.
