Goose In High Heels won the New Jersey International Film festival for best director and is one of many impressive works to be released by Stretch Films. 

Because of the exciting foment in the interview was when we had the opportunity to discuss the potential for a new Courage the Cowardly Dog show. “We are developing a prequel with cartoon network, but we don’t know where it’s going, how its developing”. In a previous interview with Tiger Media Network John R Dilworth mentioned the potential for a Courage the Cowardly Dog reboot or prequel and hearing that the potential is still there, it’s exciting to say the least.

We were able to discuss the voice cast of the short, with Thea White and Marty Grabstein reprising their roles one void that was left to fill was that of Eustace. The passing of the original voices of Eustace Bagge, Lionel Wilson and Arthur Andersen, was a major loss. They were able to find a suitable actor to perform the role excellent play, “We cast Wallace Shawn as Eustace who I love” Dilworth excitedly mentioned.  It was a great opportunity to be able to have a long discussion with John R Dilworth on the Development of his many projects.
