JOHN "RATZ" RATZEBERGER
John Ratzenberger is best known for playing mail carrier 'Cliff Clavin' on one of the most popular sitcoms of all time "Cheers." He had read for the part of Norm Peterson, but after the audition, he could tell they weren't going to give him the part. Sensing an opportunity, he asked if they had written a "bar know-it-all", which the producers decided was a great idea. Cliff became known for his outlandish stories of plausible half-truths, irrelevant trivia, and ignorant misinformation, and was known for being an overall pretentious blowhard.
Star Wars fans world wide know John for his role as "Major Derlin" as seen in "Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back" and those same fans will recognize him from another huge franchise; "Superman 1 & 2"! Horror fans remember him from "House II" and "Motel Hell", films which are on the oposite side of the spectrum when it come sto what kids know him for today!
John's popularity has crossed over from the sitcom, Sci-Fi and fantasy worlds into another huge demographic, being recognized by kids off all ages for his various roles in the Disney/Pixar animated films!
Rick Farmiloe has been animating childhoods for over 30 years, and is best known for breathing hilarity into iconic Disney sidekicks Scuttle, LeFou, and Abu in the beloved Academy Award-winning films The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin.
This American animator was first bitten by the cartooning bug at age five, while watching Walt Disney's beautifully drawn, feature-length cartoon masterpiece, Pinocchio. At age twelve, after years of creating his own cartoons for family and friends, Rick was determined to be a Disney animator. In January 1982, after only one portfolio review, he was hired by Walt Disney Productions.
During his 11 years under contract with Disney, Rick animated on seven features, which also included The Black Cauldron, The Great Mouse Detective, Oliver and Company, and The Rescuers Down Under.
Beyond his body of work for Disney, Rick's feature film credits include The Swan Princess, The Prince of Egypt, The Road to El Dorado, Shrek, Rugrats Go Wild, Curious George, The Simpsons Movie, The Boxtrolls, The Iron Giant: Signature Edition, and four Tom and Jerry direct-to-DVD films.
In 2011, Rick was an animator on two Annie Award-winning productions: Adam and Dog, which also received an Oscar nomination, and Kung Fu Panda: Secrets of the Masters. In 2015, Rick animated on yet another Annie Award winner, Coca-Cola's Man and Dog.

Andrew and his wife Veronica Loud - a gifted actress, voice-over artist, singer, print model, and photographer in her own right - live in the San Francisco Bay Area with their two children.
Award-winning cartoonist and illustrator Bill Morrison began his career in The Motor City as a technical illustrator, but he really wanted to be a cartoonist. When Bill decided that he had rendered his last diesel fuel pump, he moved to Southern California with his wife and two cats.
He began working immediately in motion picture advertising where he painted dozens of movie posters, including many for Walt Disney Pictures, such as The Little Mermaid, Bambi, Peter Pan, Cinderella, Lady and the Tramp, and The Jungle Book.
For the past several years Bill has spent most of his waking hours on various creative projects related to The Simpsons and Futurama.
In addition to his work on these iconic animated properties, Bill has written and drawn his own comic book series; the four-time Eisner Award-nominated Roswell, Little Green Man and co-created such other comic book series as Heroes Anonymous, Lady Robotika (with Jane Wiedlin of the legendary all-girl rock band, The Go-Go’s) and Dead Vengeance.
Presently, Bill is delighted to have rekindled his relationship with the classic Disney characters with an ongoing series of limited edition animation art prints published by ACME Animation Archives.
