Nancy Basile is a professional writer who has been watching TV cartoons since the days when they were relegated to only Saturday mornings, and she's been writing about them for almost 10 years.


After winning state journalism awards in college, Nancy Basile put her writing skills to good use freelancing for the Medina County Gazette in Ohio and The Intelligencer in West Virginia. Later, Nancy was an assistant to a casting director who hired talent for episodic television and made-for-TV movies.

She eventually combined her writing and television background with her love of animation, and since 1999, has been covering all aspects of animated TV online. Nancy has watched the world move from Bugs Bunny (one of her early favorites!) and The Flintstones to current hits like Aqua Teen Hunger Force. Along the way she enjoyed watching Smurfs, Speed Racer, Schoolhouse Rock, Pink Panther, Underdog, Scooby-Doo, Pee-Wee's Playhouse and many more.

Interviews with some of animated TV's biggest names have given Nancy insight into the world behind our favorite cartoons. She has interviewed creators Seth MacFarlane, Al Jean, Loren Bouchard and David X. Cohen. She has interviewed voice-over actors Nancy Cartwright, H. Jon Benjamin, Kristen Schaal, Frank Welker and Peter Cullen.

Nancy Basile is also editor-in-chief of MediaMedusa.com.

By Nancy Basile:

I strive to provide readers with the latest news on new animated shows and DVDs. I also offer episode guides, picture galleries, show profiles and trivia quizzes to help TV watchers become more acquainted with animated TV shows. I love the irreverence and biting humor of animated primetime shows. TV shows like The Simpsons, South Park and the block of shows on Adult Swim can poke fun at topics that other shows would never dare to touch. Bring on the sight gags! I think we're living in a golden-era of animation for adults. Let's live it up!
