MacNeille who was also the voice of Babs Bunny on Tiny Toons Adventures, which created the Kids WB line up, talks about here career, how Dot never went away because of all the conventions, table reads and sing-alongs at these events and remaining close friends with Paulsen, Harnell and Maurice LaMarche after all these years.
We even discuss what story time in the MacNeille household looked like growing up, especially with her having a large family and how one of the greatest advantages of being a voice over artist and actor is that at some point you never have to grow older than 35.

After returning to their beloved home, the Warner Bros. water tower, the siblings waste no time in causing chaos and comic confusion as they run loose through the studio, turning the world into their personal playground.
