Bob West: Trinity University


West is an actor best known as the original voice of Barney, the sing-song, anthropomorphic purple dinosaur that terrorized preschool kids into learning. Actual photos of Bob West are scant online. I guess he didn't want to ruin the illusion. You can take a look at him here.

Michelle Lepe: St. Mary's University


San Antonio higher education institutions are apparently adept at preparing students for careers in children's television. Lepe hosts Good Night Show on PBS KIDS Sprouts. Think of it as a sleepy Pee Wee's Playhouse with more Spanish, but less Charro. Still not familiar with Lepe? Ask a 4-year-old.
