Sherri Stoner is an American actress and writer. She was born July 16, 1959, in Santa Monica, California.[1]

She has worked extensively in animation. She was a writer and producer for such 1990s animated shows as Tiny Toon Adventures and Animaniacs. She is probably best known for Animaniacs, for which she created and voiced Slappy Squirrel, a grumpy retired cartoon character.[2] As a producer for Tiny Toons Adventures, Sherri won Emmy awards for Outstanding Animated Program in 1991[3] and 1993.[4]

She also cowrote the 1995 film version of Casper with Deanna Oliver[5] and was on the writing staff for the 1996 revival of an animated Casper the Friendly Ghost, also known of The Spooktacular New Adventures of Casper.[6] Stoner and Oliver also co-wrote the Disney film, My Favorite Martian, based on the original 60s TV series.[7]

Stoner served as the body model for Ariel in Disney's The Little Mermaid[8] and for Belle in Beauty and the Beast.[9] Ariel frequently bites her lower lip, and Belle often brushes hair away from her face. Both of these are mannerisms of Stoner's that animators adapted to the characters.

Her live-action television work includes a recurring role as Rachel Brown Oleson in Little House on the Prairie,[10] and appearances in Murder, She Wrote[11] and Knots Landing.[12]

Sherri Stoner lives and works in Los Angeles.
