John, Brett and Randy Roberts along with their children, Richard Sharrah and local kids from the Provo, Utah area are the stars of Kid Snippets. The Drunk History series on YouTube was the inspiration for the series, but Randy Roberts wanted to create a more family-friendly version.
Randy Roberts dreamed up the idea for Kid History, the concept Kid Snippets from which evolved, when he decided to enter New York's Lingo Film Festival. He and his NYU roommate Richard Sharrah created Kid Snippets with the help of Roberts' brothers, John and Brett. All four star in the series with their children as the supporting cast. Because the Roberts brothers did not want their kids to have a child star mindset, they now also cast kids from the surrounding Provo, as of 2015.
