Hollywood-based RUGRATS producer Klasky Csupo has promoted Hal Waite to senior vice president of Feature Animation, which now plans to produce one feature film per year, and Cella Duffy to senior vice president of Television Animation. Waite, who has been with the company since '96 and was a co-producer on THE RUGRATS MOVIE, is currently working on the RUGRATS sequel, scheduled for Christmas 2000. Duffy, who has been with Klasky Csupo since 1991, will serve as an executive producer on every television production including THE WILD THORNBERRYS and THE RUGRATS, two of Nickelodeon's powerhouse series.
