Rodney in 2002
Since the inception of YCDTOTV.com, Rodney Helal has been an active part of helping the growth of the site. To say the least, he's been a huge help with every aspect, providing everything from pictures to helping reunite former cast members together.
Rodney's acting days started early, as he was a cast member of 1979's Whatever Turns You On, as well as the 1979 and 1981 seasons of YCDTOTV. Following his run on YCDTOTV, Rodney also had a part in the 1983 hour-long pilot of UFO Kidnapped, starring as a Horned Boy.
Rodney has this to say about his experience in 2000:
"I was actually one of the first cast members, and was a regular on the first season of YCDTOTV. I also did Whatever Turns You On - although it was short-lived. I had the chance to stay at Ruth Buzzi's house in California with Kevin Schenk during Christmas week of 1979 (a great experience since I was 11 at the time!). Besides that, I've kept acting as a sideline. In 1992, I did an episode of Rescue 911 playing a terrorist/kidnapper. I've also done some commercials and industrial videos."
Rodney now works for IBM as an Account Executive for the Rational Software Brand.
Rodney was also one of the attendees at SlimeCon 2002 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
