About the Mitchell Kriegman Interview

Hi, I am Mitchell Kriegman and I’m most commonly known as the guy who created CLARISSA EXPLAINS IT ALL!

I also created BEAR IN THE BIG BLUE HOUSE and IT’S A BIG BIG WORLD, worked on REN & STIMPY with John Kricfalusi, DOUG, RUGRATS, ROCKO’S MODERN LIFE, and SNL for a very short… weird… time.

I published my first novel this fall and have a modern-day Clarissa sequel on the way next year called Things I Can't Explain.

Yesterday was the 20th anniversary of the last episode of CLARISSA and I want to answer your questions! AMA!


Note: Thanks so much for the great questions everyone! I gotta go but if you want to stay in touch or get more info about Things I Can't Explain, let me know via my personal website. See ya!
