Disney XD has ordered a second season of its new take on the seven dwarfs, The 7D. The series follows the adventures of Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Dopey, Grumpy and Doc as they help Queen Delightful keep her kingdom happy and prosperous in the face of efforts to the contrary by the ever-so-slightly inept would-be villains, Grim and Hildy Gloom.
The 7D cast includes Kelly Osbourne (Hildy), Jess Harnell (Grim), Leigh-Allyn Baker (Queen Delightful), Disney Legend Bill Farmer (Doc), Maurice LaMarche (Grumpy), Kevin Michael Richardson (Happy), Dee Bradley Baker (Dopey), Scott Menville (Sneezy), Stephen Stanton (Sleepy), Billy West (Bashful) and Paul Rugg (Lord Starchbottom).

Today, I had a fun talk with The Cleveland Show’s Kevin Michael Richardson. For those that don’t know KMR is quite the industry veteran voice actor, he plays 13 different voices on the Fox Television show including Cleveland, Jr. and he’s won two Emmy’s for his voice work as The Joker in the recent animated series The Batman. He’s going to be at Comic Con this week partaking in panels for The Cleveland Show and the upcoming movie The Penguins of Madagascar. We spent the first 10 minutes of the call just shooting the shit about life and stuff before we got into the guts of the interview.
It’s times like this when I really wish there was an App that would let me record phone conversations. Because it’s always difficult to cut my long winded questions down for these transcripts, plus you don’t get the good give and take. I was honest with Kevin and told him I never watched the show, but after this interview I’m now a convert.
So, The Cleveland Show?
I’m glad we came back they picked us up for a 3rd season. It shows Fox really believes in the show and we’re really jazzed about the show in confidence the Network showed us. We went gangbusters with all of our table reads and are having a lot of fun now that we know we’re going to be here for awhile.
