Q&A with the starts of the show
We had a virtual Q&A with Ashley Burch (voice of Molly) and Dana Snyder (voice of Scratch). They were both so down to earth and you can see they love voicing the characters. We did learn about diversity during the show, and how when they casted Ashely to play Molly, they were looking for someone with a mixed background to include that in the show.
Dana cares so much about making Scratch as believable and lovable as he can, and they both agree that the show has a great message for friendship and also being proud of being different.
We also had the chance to learn how to draw "Scratch" while we enjoyed some sweets sent to us by the public relations team at Disney Channel.
