On Friday, her new film, "Baby Mama," made its theatrical debut. On Saturday, Poehler goes from being hired to have a kid to being a kid in her new cartoon show "The Mighty B."
"I'm going to go to bed and stay in my pajamas until 10:30 a.m. and watch 'Mighty B,"' Poehler said of her post-movie celebration plans.
She wears her uniform everywhere and has amassed thousands of merit badges for everything from entering a stray dog in a high-end pet show to riding a roller coaster she's too short to get on.
"I think I made like a pencil holder and I went to a steakhouse restaurant. That's all I can remember," she said during a recent phone interview from her New York City home.
Bessie, with her adenoidal voice, is based on a character the 36-year-old "Saturday Night Live" star used to do on Comedy Central's "Upright Citizens Brigade."
Putting her in a cartoon show gives Poehler a chance to relive a bit of her childhood.
"Although I was not as hard working as Bessie, I certainly was as bossy," she laughed.
