“I’m very enthused about the series, and about making fun, positive and smart stories and programming for kids,” said Cheff. “Mary Farfisa is an eight-year-old space-girl.

She wants to share those songs and sounds with everyone in the Universe. Because — like she says in her theme song — ‘Songs and sounds and music and noise … can be as much fun as a box full of toys!'”

“Continually fascinated by the sounds we can coax out of the world, and what we can do with them. I blog about the music I make and the music I listen to at roughwindows.blogspot.com. “Collection,” a 22-track, digital album of my work can be downloaded at jimcheff.bandcamp.com.”
