Chowder News

Word is officially out that we have our second season pickup. We actually got this a while back, but had to keep mum about it. The network wanted to be able to announce it at the upfronts in April. CN has extended our run to 40 half hours. (The first season was 20, so they gave us 20 more.) We're well into season two and the episodes keep getting funnier and funnier.

It's our monthly new episode premier this Thursday night! In "At Your Service," Mung and Chowder become Endive's servants for the day. This is one of my favorites. Here's a peek at Endive's bathing suit.

In "Chowder & Mr. Fugu," Chowder is forced to spend the day chaperoning the catering company's most valuable customer around town. Mr. Fugu is a balloon man, and his valet, Foie Gras, is a "Lucky Cat." If you listen carefully, you'll notice that Foie Gras is voiced by George Takei.

The good news is that starting soon, there'll be a whole slew of Chowders premiering every week. So be ready!

Here's a band a friend of mine turned me on to. It's pure 80's fun and they know it. Give in and enjoy.

"Bonafide Lovin" - a nod to the "Money for Nothing" video.

"Needy Girl"

"I am Somebody" - This is actually a DJ Mehdi song featuring Chromeo. 30 points if you know where the vocal sample comes from.

Nickelodeon Magazine

I did a two page comic for this month's Nickelodeon Magazine. They asked me to write a short biography about my career path and how I got a cartoon show. Here's a little sample:

In a month or two I'll put the full version up.

Guest Voices

We've been lucky to have some really talented guest voices on the show. This week's episode is no exception. In "The Heavy Sleeper," Tone Loc stars as Chestnut, a tiny fella who lives in the city and collects whatever junk he finds lying around. Tone has the deepest voice of any man I've ever met, and he's super nice as well! We like this character a lot, so be ready to see him in future episodes.

In the second episode, "The Moldy Touch," Jon Polito stars as Funjl, a mischevious mold pixie. I've been a big fan of Jon's work from the Coen bothers' movies, and he was great to work with.

Be sure to watch the new episode this Thursday at 8pm pacific on Cartoon Network.
