Have you watched any animation on television in the last thirty years? Of course you have. And whether you realize it or not, you've watched Andrea Romano's work. A winner of eight Daytime Emmy Awards (yes, eight), a Peabody Award, and a Lifetime Achievement Award from State University of NY, Andrea Romano's amazing career has brought us of some of our most beloved state-side animation to date.
