I’ll never understand why people refer to Kartie as Kurt and Artie. They barely interact. Kartie in my mind will always be Kitty and Artie. Even KEVIN AND BECCA use Kartie (Kitty & Artie) for crying out loud.
Actually, a few weeks ago a mom came up to me and she said that her son was in a wheelchair, and after our pilot first aired, he would watch the show every day. And she said she felt dumb because she could not figure out why he liked the show so much. Then she realized that the show was the first time in 16 years that her son had ever seen a character portrayed on TV in a wheelchair. So that really affected me — to know that we are actually doing something that is touching people in a real way.
