Benny will be in the studio tomorrow, February 25th, to record a new episode of “Pat & Cat” providing voice for the teenager character “Jonah”. “Peg & Cat” is a U.S. animation series for pre-school children helping them to understand basic math by PBS Kids. The episode’s name is “The Bat Mitzvah Problem”.
Benny received a little surprising gift – a magnet badge of the character he provided his voice to in the animation series “The 99” – Wassi, which the producer of “The 99” sent to Benny as a token of appreciation of his work in the production.
In this animation series, Benny played the character Wassi the Vast who can temporarily make any part of him bigger or smaller, whether its his hands or nose… or even his toes! Benny landed this role as his 2nd project after he got in the industry and before he became an ACTRA member. Since this production isn’t an ACTRA production, due to the conflict, Benny had to apologize to not going back to the show when invited after he worked in this production for 23 episodes.
In “The 99” , the 23 episodes in which Benny featured as Wassi/Ashok are:
- Ice Storm (????) – Wassi the Vast
- A Rock and a Hard Place (????) – Ashok/Wassi (voice)
- The Wisdom (????) – Wassi the Vast

Benny was invited to return to PBS Kids 2013 animation series “Peg+Cat” for another episode. This time he provides his voice to a teen “Jonah” in the episode named “The Birthday Cake Problem”.
The series follows the adventures of Peg and her sidekick cat as they encounter unexpected problems that require simple mathematical solutions.
In this episode, you not only will hear Benny’s voice speaking as “Jonah” but also his singing so check back to find some clips some later time! 🙂
Benny will be in studio recording this on April 15, 2013.
Benny will provide his voice for “Beefcake” in PBS kids 2013 new animation series “Peg+Cat” Episode 109 – “The Honey Problem”.
From PBS’s announcement, it says “This fall, PBS KIDS will premiere PEG + CAT, a new animated preschool series that follows the adorable, spirited Peg and her sidekick Cat as they embark on adventures and learn foundational math concepts and skills.”

This is the 3rd role I landed, which is a voice-over job for a UK animation production called “The 99” about a bunch of kids (friends) who have super power and fight against intruders…fantasy type of animation show.
I am an Indian kid in this show (only providing voice so…) with a normal name “Ashok” and a hero name “Wassi”. 😛 I was in the recording studio working for about 3 hours last Friday and I had SOOOO much fun as our voice got twisted into “monster” and “chipmunk” as we transformed to heros. I love working on this project!
