He recently launched a series of TV segments called I’m Thinking of an Animal, which air on WXXI-TV/HD during WXXI’s kids block, weekdays from 7a.m. to 5:30 p.m. The segments borrow from the popular car-ride kids’ game of the same name. Billy Kelly sings clues about an animal he is thinking of, and supports his clues with animation, and performances by a professional dance troupe.
