Biography:

Larry Huber
Executive Producer,
Oh Yeah! Cartoons
Co-creator & Executive Producer, ChalkZone


A graduate of Chouinard Art School, Larry Huber is an animation veteran who has worked in the industry for more than thirty years. He began his career in 1969, as an assistant animator on Hanna-Barbera’s The Perils of Penelope Pitstop, and soon became a layout supervisor.

After spending fifteen years as a cartoon producer for Ruby-Spears Enterprises, Huber rejoined Hanna-Barbera in 1990 to co-produce Fish Police and 2 Stupid Dogs. Eventually, then-studio president Fred Seibert chose Huber to serve as supervising producer on Hanna-Barbera’s and Cartoon Network's innovative shorts program, What A Cartoon!/World Premiere Toons. Huber played a central role in the development and production of 48 seven-minute short cartoons, including the original shorts that established the hits The Powerpuff Girls, Dexter's Laboratory, Johnny Bravo, Cow & Chicken, and Courage, The Cowardly Dog.

Huber’s experience made him Seibert’s logical choice to executive produce Nickelodeon’s Oh Yeah! Cartoons series. Huber joined the project in early 1997 and helped Seibert staff it with talented animators, as well as attending to the day-to-day logistics of producing the various cartoon shorts. For the first time in his career, Huber got the opportunity to develop several cartoon concepts of his own, including Nickelodeon's hit series ChalkZone, which he created with Bill Burnett.
