This week I was invited to the Paley Center for Media for the unveiling of the Rocky & Bullwinkle Statue which was originally on the Sunset Strip. There for the unveiling was starting from left
- Gary Trousdale, director of Rocky & Bullwinkle short
- Jay Ward granddaughter
- Tiffany Ward, daughter of Jay Ward and president of Bullwinkle Studios
- Max Charles, voice of Sherman in Mr Peabody & Sherman
- Rob Minkoff, director of Mr Peabody & Sherman
- Tom Kenny, voice of Bullwinkle in Rocky & Bullwinkle short

I had the chance to interview these special guests they were all excited to see the Jay Ward Legacy Exhibit and to see the short of Rocky & Bullwinkle.
The new exhibit is a dream for fans of Jay Ward with artwork and history of his work.
We got a special treat seeing the all new short Rocky & Bullwinkle. The short is hilarious! The story is Bullwinkle is tricked into marrying a robot controlled by Boris. Can Rocky stop this wedding before Bullwinkle is betrothed to a mechanical gal?
