In this week’s episode of the “Power Kid Podcast,” host Phil Albritton of Power Kid Design welcomes Monsterfoot Productions’ Ahmet Zappa to the show.

Zappa is a multihyphenate whose work spans publishing, TV and film, music, and more. He produced Disney’s The Odd Life of Timothy Green and created the Star Darlings property, and now he’s gearing up to develop projects based on the Weird-Ohs monster hot rod model kits of the 1960s.

On the show, Albritton and Zappa discuss their mutual love of vintage toys and cartoons before delving into the backstory of the Hawk Model Co.’s Weird-Ohs and the unique art of William “Bill” Campbell. From there, Zappa shares details on his past work in Hollywood and animation and how it relates to his vision for the Weird-Ohs relaunch.
