Ernest Hummingbird, created by Feiss (Cow and Chicken) is a children's story of a lovable young hummingbird named Ernest who wants to sing and not just hum. When his parents initially object, Ernest and his two BFFs forever Bilfickle Bee and Edgar Allen Poodle set out on a musical journey of wonder, comical roadblocks, and eventual success, finding their way to sing on the big stage!

Thayer produced the Ernest Hummingbird animated storybook available at the Apple App Store, narrated by Grammy-award-winning artist Darius Rucker, and filled with original music and sing-along songs written by Thayer, Feiss, and Asher.

Charles Mechem, former CEO of Taft Broadcasting, who owned Hanna Barbera for 25 years, heads Mechem Media, is also a partner in the Ernest Hummingbird project.

A series of Ernest Hummingbird storybooks for the 4 to 8-year-old demographic are planned. Multimedia, short-content stories and sing-along songs are in development.

Wristband and book purchase are required to get in signing line. Personalization and photos will be permitted.
