Voice of Digit, Cyberchase
When they offered me the part of the bird Digit on Cyberchase, it seemed quite fitting. I always seem to be getting the bird parts (Parrot in Aladdin and the Aflac Duck). However, when they told me it was an educational cartoon, one thing popped into my head. When I was a child, I was the worst student ever, and as an adult, I ain’t much smarter. I thought for sure once they figured out the horrible mistake they made, they would get someone else.
I’m happy to say that saner minds did not prevail. For the years that Cyberchase has been running, I have parents approach me all the time explaining to me that their children are addicted to the cartoon and they love figuring out the problems and solving them along with the other characters in the cartoons. Some of them even try to beat the stars of the series. So, I guess the people producing Cyberchase knew what they were doing after all!
