We got to meet the actors who play Felipe, Pat, Turner, Stretch, Squeeze, Dusty, Rusty, Flicker, Kelly and Mr. Lopart and watch them in action.

During our time at Salami Studios we interviewed the cast of characters, the producers and creative minds behind Handy Manny. It was lots of fun to be part of their 100th Episode event and hope you will watch Handy Manny on Disney’s Playhouse and be sure to visit the website for fun and interactive things to do online.
