Overview

Ever wonder what Bart does when he's off camera? Want to know the special diet that keeps him forever young, how he feels about his genius creators or if he's considering a spin-off series? Hey, wake up and eat his shorts! He's a cartoon character, man! He doesn't have an off-camera life. But the person who knows more about The Simpsons than anyone else is here to tell all about the show. Nancy Cartwright, the ultimate Simpsons insider, traces The Simpsons' rapid rise to wild popularity, offers hilarious anecdotes about cast members and guest stars -- including Mel Gibson, Meryl Streep, Elizabeth Taylor and Phil Hartman -- and reveals what it's like to be at the center of an American institution, one that reinvented the sitcom and changed the face of American television. Nancy also takes you behind the scenes into the never-before-revealed world of Simpsons animation. You'll follow the process of creating an entire season, from pencil to screen, and see how these magicians defy the laws of physics and turn out twenty-two episodes a year that take ten months each. No way, man! Yes, way.

Packed with more information than has ever been revealed about the longest-running animated show, here is the perfect book for the millions of Simpsons fans who can't get enough of America's favorite dysfunctional family.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
For ten years now, Nancy Cartwright has been making us laugh as the voice of fearless smart aleck Bart Simpson. Now Cartwright recounts her experiences at the forefront of the animated sitcom revolution and inside the head of the boy who told us all to eat his shorts.
Matt Groening
Here's the sweet and funny inside scoop on The Simpsons, straight from the mouth of Bart herself.
Library Journal
For people dying to know all about the woman whose voice animates Bart Simpson from the cartoon TV series The Simpsons, here it is. Cartwright seemed always to know she wanted to do "voice-overs." Her unique voice enabled her to star as a "whiz kid" in forensics in high school and college. Her break came when she contacted Daws Butler, famous for bringing his voice to Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound, and other Hanna Barbera cartoon characters, and he became her mentor. This gave Cartwright the impetus to transfer from Ohio University to UCLA and follow her dream. The Simpsons started as an interlude on the Tracey Ullman Show but quickly expanded into the series it is today, a television classic. Cartwright marvels at her reception worldwide while touring on behalf of The Simpsons, and she shares anecdotes about the other "voice-over" cast members and many celebrities who have also done voices on the show. However, Cartwright's own life notwithstanding, there is nothing really new or exciting here. She knew what she wanted to do and was able to do it; end of story. Though those wishing to do voice-over work might find this interesting, it is not an essential purchase.--Rosellen Brewer, Monterey Cty.

From The Critics
My Life As A 10-Year-Old Boy is the fascinating, behind-the-scenes story of Nancy Cartwright, who is the voice of Bart Simpson on "The Simpsons", the very popular and longest running comedy series on television today. Here revealed for her legions of fans is the inside story of Cartwright's career, with intimate and candid anecdotes from a true insider. We are treated to Cartwright's history of her life as Bart going back to the early days when she received a call from her agent about an audition for an animated "interstitials" series that was to be sandwiched between commercial breaks and "the Tracey Ullman Show". Nancy was originally asked to read for the role of Lisa Simpson, but landed the role of Bart, a devious, underachieving, school-hating, irreverent, clever, soon to be a pop culture icon, ten year old boy from an hilariously dysfunctional family in the dysfunctional town of Springfield. My Life As A 10-Year-Old Boy is a "must" for all Simpson fans everywhere! Making Independent Films Liz Stubbs & Richard Rodrigues Allworth Press 10 East 23rd St., #510, NY, NY 10010
