Jonathan Harris Update

The Bolt Who Screwed Christmas is a short animated film inspired by (and a parody of) the classic story of How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Scheduled to be released in late 2006 this may very well be the last film featuring Jonathan Harris. Harris passed away in late 2002 a little more than a year after recording has part for the film. "Sadly Mr. Harris never even got to see character designs for the part he was to portray as we were still looking for artists and animators" Wardlaw stated when he heard that Harris had passed away.

"I grew up watching Harris play Dr. Smith on Lost in Space as well as hearing his voice on shows like the original Battlestar Galactica. When I heard his voice in A Bugs Life I knew I had found my voice for the character of The Bolt. Mr. Harris was a pleasure to work with, and I am sad he never got to see the finished product."

The film also stars the voice of Tress MacNeille as Cindi Loose Screw. Tress MacNeille has a voice credit list that is way to long to go into on this web site (check IMDB) but appears regularly on the Simpsons.

As of February 2006 this film is in production. To be more specific it is being animated with more info coming soon to this page.
