In 2004 Ritter was nominated for TV: Male Breakout Star by Teen Choice Awards for his role in Joan of Arcadia.


Slumberkins is AppleTV+’s newest children’s show that aims to teach children social and emotional skills with relatable characters and stories. Ritter voices Fox’s Dad on the show.

In an exclusive interview with uInterview, Ritter talked about watching the show with his young daughter.

“She’s really into it,” Ritter said. “She doesn’t seem to pay too much attention to the fact that I’m one of the guys on there. She really likes the songs and she bonds a lot with the unicorn character. After an episode, she’ll take it in and then days later she’ll be like, ‘Remember when Sloth’s cupcake got ruined?’ like it’s something that happened to one of her friends, and I think that’s the lovely thing about it.”

Ritter also talked about why he wanted to be part of the show. 

“I think the thing that attracted me to this show was it had all the makings of other children’s shows I enjoy – it’s fun, it’s beautiful to look at, it’s funny – but within these episodes are these beautiful little life lessons,” he revealed. “I found as an adult even, I was getting helpful tools in emotion management and I think it’s important. It’s generally important for the world right now that we can manage our emotions and figure out why we’re feeling what we’re feeling and have little ways of getting out of some of those emotions that aren’t as fun as other ones.”

Slumberkins is streaming on Apple TV+.
