With spooky-season in full effect, I am excited to share all about Disney Channel's new series, The Ghost and Molly McGee. This is such a fun totally, not- so-scary, animated, musical television series the whole family can enjoy!
The boys and I got the opportunity to join an exclusive Disney event that included a LIVE virtual screening of a never before seen TV Episode of “The Ghost and Molly McGee”. This new series premiered October 1st and it has become a favorite show among kids. My boys had already watched the first few episodes prior to the special screening so they were super excited to find out they were going to watch a new episode followed by a special Q&A with the stars of the show Molly McGee (voiced by Ashly Burch), and Scratch (voiced by Dana Snyder).
During the Q&A we got to speak to Ashly Burch (voice of Molly) and she shared with us about her excitement when she learned that the character she would be voicing would share the same cultural heritage as her and would be half white, half Thai. She spoke about the diversity of the show and the importance of representation. As a parent, I am excited that my kids get to watch a show that is culturally diverse.
After the special screening and Q&A, we got to meet the character designer, Karl Cruz who taught us a quick learn-to-draw Scratch session, which we all really enjoyed.
Tween optimist Molly McGee lives to make the world a better place, fix what has gone wrong, and spread joy. Meanwhile, cantankerous ghost Scratch lives to make the world a worse place, break what has gone right, and spread misery. When a curse from Scratch backfires, he finds himself forever bound to Molly. Despite that, Scratch and Molly form an unlikely friendship that guides each of them through the ups and downs of their respective worlds.
