This place still gets a freakish amount of views, so...

Go here for my animation articles. It's a collab blog that I helped start that has a bunch of awesome guys on it.

Go here for my new personal blog (third times the charm, right?), which focuses on video games.

Tom Deslongchamp's "Kid Show"

Until I start buckling down next month, and actually start doing some worthwhile posts, here's a little animated short for ya. Made as a senior project at the Rhode Island School of Design, "Kid Show" is basically about the wonders of being a kid. Seeing fun in everything, talking with inanimate objects...childhood was great wasn't it? Learn more about this screwy cartoon here, and read an interview with the creator here.

Mark Your Calanders...

The long-waited "Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show," the finale for the popular animated series Ed, Edd n Eddy, finally makes its US debut on Sunday, November 8th at 7pm. Despite being advertised as a world premiere, it has aired in Australia, Southeast Asia, Scandinavia and Latin America in the past few months.

Over the weekend, Cartoon Network will be airing afternoon-long marathons of the show from noon to 7pm. And in case you miss the movie, it will be repeated on Monday at 8pm and Wednesday at 4pm.

Greenlights and Premieres

Horrorbots Going Full Speed

Greenlit back in August, the new Cartoon Network series Horrorbots has finally started production early this month. The series follows two friends, Thrasher and Blastus, who must face their most difficult challenge yet: high school. But there's a catch, for you see, they are robots living on a planet inhabited solely by robots. Less horrific then their mechanical brethen, these two misfits set out on a quest to fit in. Created by Micheal Buckley (author of The Sisters Grimm) and produced at New York's World Leaders Entertainment (known for [adult swim]'s The Venture Bros.)

Regular Show Is Moving Along

Also an August greenlight, Regular Show may be the only series animation fans may see come out of the Cartoon Network's defunct Cartoonstitute project. Anything but average, the show features two groundskeepers, Mordecai (a blue jay) and Rigby (a raccoon) who do pretty much anything to keep themselves entertained. However, even something as mundane as a game of rock-paper-scissors can take a turn for the surreal and chaotic. Created by J.G. Quintel (creative director of The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack) and produced at Cartoon Network Studios.

Nickelodeon's newest animated series, the squash-and-strech CGI cartoon Fanboy and Chum Chum, is set for a November 7th premiere date. Fans of everything and fearful of nothing, our protagonists have many surreal adventures in their warped little town...all while wearing superhero costumes. Created by Eric Robles and produced at Nickelodeon Animation Studios.

Cartoon Network's Batman: The Brave and the Bold returns on October 16th to finish off its first season and jump right into the second. An episodic team-up series of epic proportions, each half-hour has the Caped Crusader teaming-up with a fellow DC hero to take down crime. Executive producer James Tucker (Justice League and League of Super Heroes); produced at Warner Bros. Animation.

Legal Cartoonstitute Shorts

The Awesome Chronicles of Manny and Khan and 3 Dog Band are the only two Cartoonstitute shorts can be considered to be online legally. Manny and Khan was recently put up by the short's creators (Josh Lieberman and Joey Giardina), while 3 Dog Band was put up by the company that did the sound design (Easyfeel). I'll be doing a Cartoon Review of the latter in a week or two.

Cartoonstitute Shorts Online

Yes, you read that correctly. Cartoon Network has uploaded every single short from their cancelled shorts program, Cartoonstitute. I couldn't possibly wait to share it with you all. Here's a link to the glorious page: Cartoonstitute on Youtube. Also, the highest hated short will be greenlighted to become an animated series. Loving it!
