Mini Bio (1)
The son of computer pioneer John Gaffney and Carol Crandall Gaffney, Peter Gaffney was an editor of the "Harvard Lampoon" (where his so-called "Leap of Faith" is now legendary) and later of the "National Lampoon." He spent five years as a writer and creative consultant for MTV, for which (often in collaboration with Glenn Eichler) he conceived Clio-winning promo campaigns and wrote several years' worth of "The Video Music Awards." Since serving as a writer and senior story editor for the first five seasons of "Rugrats" (for which he won an Emmy and the Jewish Televimage Award), Gaffney has worked extensively in TV animation for both children and adults. He has also written for film, created video games, edited a book ("The Herodotus File") and developed concepts for new media -- both on his own and in partnership with Japhet Asher, the former vice-chairman of (Colossal) Pictures and creator of MTV's "Liquid Television." Formerly married to Mary Ellen Healey, Gaffney now divides his time between the Hollywood Hills and a home near Lake Arrowhead, which he shares with his father and their dog Gretel.
