Do you remember when John produced and hosted “Made in America,” a show for the Travel Channel? John Ratzenberger celebrated American manufacturing and the skill of American workers as he traveled to factories in towns throughout the country. That popular show established a television precedent and led the way for a new series of shows including: “Dirty Jobs”; “Deadliest Catch”; “Ice Road Truckers”; and more. These shows celebrate the work ethic that built America to be its strength. John also co-authored We’ve Got it Made in America: A Common Man’s Salute to an Uncommon Country, which was published by Time Warner.
Between “Made in America” and the book We’ve Got it Made in America: A Common Man’s Salute to an Uncommon Country, it’s clear to see that John takes his role as a spokesperson for the manufacturing crisis seriously. And thanks to popular demand, John and the production team want to bring a new version of American-Made television to you.
A Letter From John
Hi everyone, John Ratzenberger here. You may remember me as Cliff the mailman on Cheers or the voice of some of your favorite characters in Pixar movies. But one of my favorite projects was the TV show, John Ratzenberger’s Made in America, spotlighting great American manufacturers and showing how their products were made.
You see I love this country and I love making stuff and I love watching stuff being made. So please support my FundAnything campaign to shoot a new TV show, John Ratzenberger’s American Made. The show will feature the best in today’s American made companies including small batch local manufacturers, hip new brands, cutting edge products and the household names we all know and love.
