Toonzone Interview

With the premeire just days away, I've been running around like a madman getting everything ready. To get you warmed up for Friday, here's some reading material - a recent interview with the animation website Toonzone. It was definitely one of the more thoughtful interviews I've had. Thanks to Ed Liu for doing a great job.

This drawing was made over three years ago for the pitch packet I first showed to the network. I'll post more of these soon.

Fred Fredburger Doll

Here's the doll I mentioned in the last post. Bet you didn't think it was real.

And yes, CN should sell these, but they don't. And no, unfortunately, I can't get you one. Like I said before, try writing to them and let them know you want this stuff available. Maybe someday they'll listen. Someday far far in the future.

Chowder Hat

Occasionally CN does something right. Hard to believe, I know. While they never seem to make any noticeable consumer merchandise for their shows (except Ben 10), they have a great in-house department that makes awesome premiums. Unfortunately they're only available to employees. It's good for the employees but bad for the fans. This stuff should be sold in stores, but that's not up to me, and it may be discussed in a future post titled "Cartoon Network: We Don't Like Money."

In honor of Chowder, they've made these incredible hats. Seeing all my friends from the Atlanta office wearing them made me truly happy. Since I've been getting so many bad feelings from Atlanta recently, this little ray of sunshine really helped. They even got one on Dracula, and we all know Dracula don't like wearing no goofy hats!

*Sorry, I can't get you a hat. They were given to employees. Write to CN if you think they should sell them. Pester them incessantly. And ask about the cool Fred Fredburger dolls, too.

Chowder Sneek Peek!

Cartoon Network has begun running sneek peeks of Chowder. As far as I know, it's a few short clips from the pilot and some of the early episodes. Tune in and see if you can catch a glimpse.

Apparently I was wrong. The clips are running all day today (Monday!)

Today's Forecast

Things feel quite a bit gloomy over here. With the premiere coming up, this should be a very exciting month! But instead there's a pervasive feeling of tension in the air. Like other productions here, we're sort of just dragging along on life support. Please, someone just put a pillow over my face and end it! I'm tired of all this crap.
