Honey Dee was born in 1982, created by Joe Oriolo, a well-known American cartoon animator, writer, director and producer, best known as the co-creator of Casper the Friendly Ghost and the producer of the Felix the Cat character and TV series. Honey Dee was one of about 25 characters created by Oriolo as part of an HBO series called “The Adventures of Professor Beetoven” produced by James Rumpf, a business partner of Oriolo in the early 1980’s. The Adventures of Professor Beetoven aired as an HBO special in 1985.
After the death of Joe Oriolo in 1985, James Rumpf Sr. ended up buying the rights to the characters from Oriolo. Upon his death the characters were passed on to James Rumpf II, where he developed Honey Dee and the other Professor Beetoven characters from Joe’s son Don Oriolo in 2003 and created the brand Cartoongems.
James Rumpf II, through a team of animators and marketers, has been developing Honey Dee's iconic All-American character since. Honey Dee and her animated friends are now available to the general public throughout the Internet and on merchandise such as men’s and women’s apparel and coffee mugs through an affiliate licensing program. Honey Dee is also featured in a popular social trivia game app called Honey Dee Trivia. The first game, That 80s App, is downloadable for free via the Apple Store. A more robust version of Honey Dee Trivia featuring responsive web, Android, and iOS versions on a socially integrated platform with new categories such as Rock Trivia, is scheduled for release in 2017.
