Show business is my family’s business. It all began with my grandfather, Hal Seeger, an Animation Producer and the creator of the Batfink, Fearless Fly, and Milton the Monster cartoon on ABC in the 60’s. Grandpa got his start in the 1930’s drawing and writing Popeye comic strips, later working on Betty Boop cartoons at Fleischer Studios.

 

My father, David Seeger grew up working in film at Hal Seeger Studios. That’s where he met my mother, Holly Whitstock Seeger, a talented animator. Together, they created the viral hit, The Karate Rap. Over the years, my Dad has garnered 3 Emmys.

 

In 1979, my grandparents transitioned from film to video, launching the post-house, Today Video Inc. From the moment I was born, I was literally thrust into the business and have the footage to prove it—as a baby, I was an actor in their karate comedy, Sister Sensei
