Hillary Powell

Hello! I spent the first 15 years of my professional career in On-Air Promotions as a Writer/Producer for Cartoon Network Europe, Warner Bros. and Disney. I took ten years off (!) to raise my kids (excellent focus group) and then climbed back up the work force ladder in Animation.

I’ve worn many hats – Script Super, Creative Exec, Production Manager and now a Senior Animation Producer at various companies such as Mattel, Warner Bros., Six Point Harness and now Moonbug Entertainment. I am producing a Netflix series for one of our preschool IPs “Little Baby Bum Music Time” which will launch in 2023.

I am married, live in Burbank and have a daughter (19) and a son (17). That’s it in a tiny nutshell!

Title/Expertise:  Senior Animation Producer

Location:  Burbank, CA
