Tara Strong

Returning guest Tara Strong called in for a chat about the final season of “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic,” where she has voiced Twilight Sparkle for more than 200 episodes.  We discussed how she’s been a part of the lives of multiple generations of children, how it feels to say goodbye to a character, and shared some insight on recording sessions for animated features.  She was also kind enough to say hello to my 3-year-old daughter in character as Twilight Sparkle.

Marty Krofft on his new series “Mutt & Stuff”

Marty Krofft is a legendary TV producer who is responsible for some of my fondest childhood memories — watching “Land of the Lost” and “Sigmund and the Sea Monsters.”  We discussed his new show, “Mutt & Stuff,” premiering on Nickelodeon this Friday morning.   I also found out the Sigmund costume I wore in pre-school would be worth a small fortune if I still had it.  Time to raid my parents’ attic!
