Ernie Gilbert works as the art director for the cartoon show “the Fairly Oddparents” (one of my daughter’s favorites) and also plays, you guessed it, kids; ukulele. Ernie says of one episode: "One of the most exciting things for me, was getting to provide the singing voice (and play ukulele) for this character- Chippington Skylark III".

In the entry comments, Ernie posted a reponse, almost as an aside: "I won the Animation Industry's "Annie" Award, for character design last year, for this episode ."
Check out the rest of his blog, it’s full of juicy tidbits!
