Rebel Entertainment

Rebel Entertainment was the company that produced Roundhouse. While Benny Hester, Buddy Sheffield, and Rita Sheffield started the production company in 1990, Roundhouse took seven years of planning. The company was orginally called Half Fast Productions, but Nickelodeon wouldn't let them show that name at the end credits of Roundhouse . The name Rebel Entertainment was adopted.
