  • Quotes

    • Dwight: I've loved playing Mung Daal on Chowder. It's been really fun so far. The voice acting is magnificent in the show, and I love watching episodes.

    • Schultz: As a child, I always loved sound and voices. Very early on, I'd go to a movie, come back and imitate everything and everybody. I'd sit with a box of clay and make monsters and people, and I'd do the voices for everybody.
