My spouse spotted this familiar face in LA today and took this photo. (I added the zooming sequence for dramatic effect.)
In the writers’ room and in storyboard meetings on Avatar: The Last Airbender, we would often get to the end of a script/board and someone would inevitably ask, “Where’s Momo?” We would have forgotten to include him in the story/storyboard, so we’d have to go back and do a Momo pass, figuring out where he was and what he could be doing. If we were clever enough, we’d come up with things that contributed toward the plot; but often they just added a bit of comic and/or cute animal relief while answering the question of his whereabouts.
And despite those efforts, even after that, the directors would turn in their final shipping boards and inevitably get them back with several Post-It notes attached to various scenes from our checker, Cathy. These notes read: Where’s Momo?
