The Mighty B! Wiki

Katie Rice has worked in animation since 2001,[1] primarily as a storyboard artist. She storyboarded five episodes of The Mighty B!, all for season 2. Rice noted that many episodes she boarded on the show "contained a lot of pathos."[2]

Alongside Lynne Naylor (whom Rice has stated she looks up to),[3] they are the only women to have worked as such on the show.


Born in Marin, California,[3] Rice's first job in the animation industry was as an inker at Spumco.[4] She provided layouts on Ren & Stimpy Adult Party Cartoon.[5]

She worked on the Disney cartoon The Buzz on Maggie as a designer, later storyboarding episodes of Brandy & Mr. Whiskers[4] and El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera.[6] In 2013, she competed on the reality show Strip Search, where Rice outlasted her fellow contestants (all comics artists) and won.

Rice has worked on the 2014 film The Book of Life in addition to the television series DC Super Hero Girls[3] and Pinky Malinky.[6] As of 2020, she was working as a director for the Animaniacs reboot.[3] That same year, Rice was named one of the "rising stars" in animation by Animation Magazine.[3]
