Nancy Cartwright Wins the Nextel Cup

Well…not quite yet, but this Sunday afternoon at California’s Irwindale Speedway Ms. Cartwright will be one step closer than the rest of us to that illustrious crown. Following a day of training and rigorous testing, Nancy will have her NASCAR driver’s license.

This is an honor, as you may know, shared by the elite (crazy) few, who thirst for speed. And, now, the voice of our favorite, spiky-headed ten-year-old joins that prestigious (insane) fraternity.

Leading Nancy to the “promised land” will be the driver of the #27 ARCA RE/MAX Series car, Kenton Gray. These two recently joined forces when FMG Racing and Team Kelly Racing founded a marketing alliance to promote Mr. Gray’s competition car and Nancy’s animated series, The Kellys.

Kenton, who has been driving competitively since the age of ten, will begin the training by giving Nancy some driving tips, but you can be sure she’ll have a thing or two to say after she gets her license.



It's All in the Wrist

The pomp-and-circumstance has been going on for a little over 75 years. First established back in 1928, the Hollywood Christmas parade is billed as "the largest celebrity parade in the world!" In their time, Mary Pickford, Natalie Wood, Eddie Cantor and the Three Stooges all rode in the parade.

This year, sitting proudly atop "The Way to Happiness" float, their newly appointed international spokesperson, Nancy Cartwright, smiled and waved her way through the streets of Hollywood for the mile-and-a-half course. Several hundred thousand people attend each year, sitting along Hollywood and Sunset Boulevards.

Nancy apparently practiced the "beauty queen" wave and by the time the parade started, she was ready to go. It was broadcast Live on KTLA and continues being re-run throughout the month of December, across the country.

Says Nancy, "The parade has been a Hollywood tradition for so long that it has become a staple of the holiday diet. It is an honor to be a part of it."

We Just Can’t Seem to Quit Her

Our beloved intern Courtney Kowitz is back for her third run with the Cartwright Entertainment team. She first joined the staff back in 2000 at the tender age of 16. Five years after her first run, fond memories of candle-lit lunches and office PAs drew her back.

Now she is one of our wonderful assistants, our dear friend, and gift basket design artist. She is actively pursuing a career in voice acting, trapeze wizardry and cellophane sculpting.


Happy House - Kidsfaire 2006

On October 7 and 8, Happy House hosted a The Way to Happiness booth at Kidsfaire at the Orange County Fairgrounds. This was the non-profit’s second consecutive year building better families in Orange County.

Kidsfaire is an interactive environment designed to enrich the lives of babies, children and families everywhere. Happy House manned one of the hundreds of booths with one goal in mind, bettering the lives of children and their families.

The Happy House team, with some much-needed help from OC volunteers dedicated to getting The Way to Happiness broadly into society, handed out 2,800 books.

The main attraction was a drawing table at which kids could crayon their image of a Happy Family or just have fun coloring.

A Brief Journey to the Emerald Isle

Over a year ago, the University College of Dublin Law Society invited Nancy over to Ireland to participate in their comedy debate and have a little chat with the Society students.

While she couldn’t attend at that time, they kept at it and a year later had another university, National University of Ireland at Galway, Literary and Debating Society, join them in bringing Nancy over for a little bi-coastal trip to the island.

Nancy and her Exec Asst. Janelle made the journey over “the pond” for a fun-filled, if brief, excursion with some wonderful students.

Both the UCD Law Society and the NUIG Lit & Deb Society were incredibly gracious hosts, showing their guests around the sites, taking in some authentic Irish music, the train to the Irish National Stud in Kildare and even making the ferry trip out to the island of Inisheer off the western coast, all in-between college appearances.

During her stay in Dublin, Nancy also made an appearance on the Late Late show with Pat Kenny, the most watched show in Ireland, which led to a number of very friendly but unforeseen recognitions on the street for the rest of the week!

Overall it was a great time with some very bright and hospitable students who taught us that traditional Irish pubs do still exist, sing-alongs are not uncommon, the Claddagh ring originates in Galway, and “Irish blokes don’t dance.”

Thanks to our lovely hosts and everyone we met along the way.


Spooktacular 2006!

Happy House joined other community minded groups and thousands of families for the annual Spooktacular Celebration in Northridge, CA.

Hosted by the Northridge Community Hospital and the North Valley Regional Chamber of Commerce, the fair covers two entire city blocks and features inflatable bouncing haunted houses, live music, comedy kettle corn, masks, gymnastics, health testing booths, and dozens of other exhibits all designed to offer some light-hearted entertainments to families.

Team members Marti and Bobbi Kassowitz and Peter Kjenaas passed out nearly 1400 The Way to Happiness booklets and met hundreds of bright children all hungry for a bit of candy and some adventure.

We were happy to see our friends from Devonshire PALS (Police Activities League) and from the Chamber enjoying a perfect day under the sun.

See you next year!
