400 Episodes Strong

OMYGOD---400 episodes already!! It seems to me that it was just yesterday that we were announced on the Fox line-up as having our own half-hour show!

Fox threw us a big bash on the lot on New York Street, famous for the set of Hello, Dolly! About 1,000 peeps attended, mostly artists and staff. There were plenty of media there and I spent about 1 1/2 hours doing tons of interviews for the promotion of our record-breaking 400th.

The only other show that tops ours is Gunsmoke. It was on the air from 1955-1975.

The Simpsons first aired in 1990 as a sitcom; however we made our television debut on The Tracey Ullman Show back in 1987, making it a 20-year-run.

My vision is to see that we do no less than 500! Fox will throw us another party--bigger balloons, better food.

 

Nancy and Music’s Renaissance Man

Recently I had the pleasure of watching the great Placido Domingo lend his dulcet vocal tones to The Simpsons.

Although he and Bart didn't have any scenes together, watching the "King of Opera" take singing lessons from Homer was definitely one of the highlights of working on the show.

We so seldom get to actually work with our celebrity guests that you can imagine the admiration in the room when Placido was coming up with take after take, injecting his own "create" into the character. He truly is the "Renaissance Man of music."

 

Bart’s Old Friend, Rove

Cafe Des Artistes in Hollywood was the backdrop for a meeting of Bart and Rove, two names that need no explanation... if you're in the right company or country.

Bart would stand out pretty much anywhere but his "voice" would only be known to Simpson buffs aware of his cross-gender vocals and Rove would stop traffic in Melbourne or Sydney “down-under” but can walk with relative anonymity on Rodeo Drive…

But hopefully not for too long. Rove was in town with manager Kevin Whyte to see what opportunities lay before him within the confines of “teevee land” on our side of the big pond.

Best of luck, Rove! Stop rovin' and settle down here if you like. No worries, mate.

Jaycees

Saturday, April 21st, Nancy was proud to be invited by the California Jaycees to attend the annual Outstanding Californians black tie awards ceremony at the Hilton Hotel in Woodland Hills, CA.

“These are the difference makers,” said Cartwright. “Leaders like this, who do whatever is needed to help others, can really create a positive change for everyone.”

Ten honorees received recognition for their efforts to improve conditions in society.

 

Bart Flies Wright

On April 29th, Nancy flew to Dayton, OH, close to her home town of Kettering, as a guest of Wright State University to deliver a lecture on what it takes to be a success.

Playing to an enthusiastic house of over 300 Nancy revealed moments in her life where she was presented with choices which led her, eventually, on a path to “Bartdom.”

The overall message was clear: “Carpe Diem. You really have to keep your eyes open for opportunities, just follow through. Why not? For me, it was a business card that probably would lead to nothing but by sending one letter it opened up my whole career.”

Nancy would like to thank her hosts for an opportunity that “Gives me a chance to share with kids who are making the same kinds of choices I was when I was getting started.”
