The creators of the Nickelodeon cartoon Sanjay and Craig were recently at the California State University College for a meet and greet. Sanjay and Craig premiered on Nickelodeon and May 25, 2013. Two out of the three creators, Jim Dirschberger and Jay Howell were at the event. Andreas Trolf was not present.
Sanjay and Craig is about two best friends. Sanjay Patel is a 12 year old boy and Craig is a talking snake. Sanjay met Craig in a pet store and they go on some wild adventures. Craig is a “master of disguise”. Whether Craig is dressed as a doctor, lawyer, or a beauty queen, no one can ever tell its Craig and only a couple people know he can talk.
The two creators, Jim and Jay, had a table set up signing large posters of Sanjay and Craig. I got to talk to them for a few minutes and they were extremely nice! Besides giving me an autographed poster, I also received an envelope that contained Sanjay and Craig finger puppets and a collector series, limited edition 3 button set of the main characters.
The meet and greet also had a live band playing fantastic music and a food table. The food table had a variety of delicious fruits, vegetables, cheeses, chips & salsa and drinks. The event had a great turn out that they had to restock their finger puppets and posters when more people came. It was an extremely fun event with the talented and extremely nice creators of Sanjay and Craig. I’m glad that they had a great turn out and am happy the cartoon was renewed for a second season.
