“I get a lot of emails from parents whose kids want to see the return of characters from season one or two,” said Jonathan Messinger, the show’s creator. “I think a lot of them will be excited by what happens this season.”

“Every time I think I have a case of writer’s block or I’m in a creative lull, I just check my email and read through all of the awesome ideas listeners send in,” Messinger said. “There’s no such thing as writer’s block for kids — their wells run deep.”

See how Jonathan Messinger uses the sounds kids send in through Griffin’s Sound Club to sound design The Alien Adventures of Finn Caspian.

“When I started Finn Caspian, I knew I wanted it to be interactive, where the kids could play a role in making the show. That’s why Griff is my editor, and why we use listener suggestions and sounds to make the show,” Messinger said. “But I didn’t expect them to wrestle it from my hands, take it over and leave me in the dust. But it’s happened and, unsurprisingly, the show is better for it.”
