I’m not the only one who remembers Playhouse Disney right? Charlie and Lola, JoJo’s Circus, Rolie Polie Olie, Handy Manny, imagination Movers, The Wiggles, Jungle Junction, Special Agent Oso, Little Einsteins, Higglytown Heroes, Bear In The Big Blue House, etc. Like I’m in my feeling right now you guys 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭 Especially over Charlie and Lola, I use to watch that show all the time when I was younger trying to copy their accents, while drinking pink milk 😂😭

If you ever feel insecure about your writing now, remember that William Joyce’s first story was a book he made in fourth grade about a boy and his super-powered booger; Joyce is currently a successful children’s book author whose works include (but are not limited to) Rolie Polie Olie, A Day With Wilbur Robinson (later adapted into the film Meet The Robinsons), The Leaf Men and the Brave Good Bugs (the inspiration for Epic), and The Guardians of Childhood (the source material for Rise of the Guardians).

Even better? William Joyce just recently turned his first story into a legitimate book, called Billy’s Booger. So you shouldn’t give up on writing now, even if you feel you aren’t that great yet; you’ll get there eventually, so long as you keep on writing.

William Joyce.

I know that he created “Rolie Polie Olie” and won the Oscar for his short film “The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore” but I didn’t know that he wrote the book “A Day with Wilbur Robinson” that was made into the movie Meet the Robinson’s, also your books “Rise of the Guardians” are being made into this amazing movie as well. You are the greatest guy in THE WORLD! Would love to be a voice for one of his characters one day :) Thank you again for signing my book today!
