Other peeps we met in Burbank!!

Unfortunately, like idiots, we didn't get photos with everyone we met but here's some we did get...
At Disney we bumped into the awesome Alan Bodner

We got a tour of Cartoon Network and the Fosters department by Senor Chips himself

We also managed to meet the very handsome Edgar Wright and got our copies of Hot Fuzz signed by him

One of the coolest things to happen on our trip and possibly our lives was meeting the great Eric Goldberg!! He's been described by some people as "the greatest living animator" so it was fairly nerve-racking for us, but he was truely awesome and very humble!! We were introduced to him by our good friends Jen and Bert Klein - we were invited to their place for a bbq and they told us there would be a special guest and, you guessed it, it was Eric. He, of course, animated one of the greatest characters of all time... the Genie in Aladdin!! He also animated Phil in Hercules, so yeah, basically he RULES!!

We spent hours picking he brain and listening to his stories about Disney and his amazing career, it was very cool! At the end of he night he made us the happiest kids in the world and drew a picture for us...

We have smiles a mile wide forever now!!!
