Billy and Mandy creator Maxwell Atoms is looking to create a post-apocalyptic wed cartoon.
"Dead Meat" is a twisted R-rated buddy comedy/action movie featuring a mixture of live actors, puppets, and a surreal combination of practical and digital FX. If "The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy" was my take on laughing at irrational childhood fears, "Dead Meat" is my take on laughing at the often all-too-real fears of adulthood.
At Frederator we’ve always asked for brief thumbnail layouts, or beatboards, for short cartoon pitches. Natasha Allegri, way back in February 2012, went above and beyond the call of duty, for all intents and purposes whipping up a full production board for pitching her "Bee and PuppyCat" short. Following the greenlight, rather than editing the board for a shorter running time, Natasha added to her work, and we split the result into two parts. Part I premiered on July 11. Look over the board, and find out what was added (or subtracted).
Hey everybody! Just wanted to drop you all a line and announce a couple pieces of Toonami news.
First, we are proud to announce that Toonami will be WORLD PREMIERING the new series from Shinichiro Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo) and Studio BONES (FMA, Soul Eater, many more), SPACE DANDY! SPACE DANDY is a brand new series that will be premiering in the U.S. BEFORE it premieres in Japan (yep, you read that right)! Details on that to follow soon.
Oh, and when will it premiere? Sooner than you think- This January, at 11:30 PM!
"Did I just read 11:30?"
Yep, you read that right. Space Dandy will kick off an expanded 6-1/2 HOUR TOONAMI broadcast every Saturday. Toonami Faithful, we got our extra half hour!
Oh, you’re STILL not satisfied? Fine. We have some other great news that will be coming in the next few weeks, but until then we’ll drop one more little tidbit: In December, Toonami will take a break from our regular schedule and have a bit of holiday fun, with three weeks in a row of a movie special to kick off the block! What movies, you ask? Well, you’ll have to wait a bit on that. :)
Finally- if you have more questions about all this, GOOD- ask them here! We’ll be doing our monthly Toonami Q&A this Sunday from 11am et, to whenever we hit the tumblr post limit! Remember, your question could end up on our monthly on-air Tumblr Q&A session with Tom and Sara.
WHEW- okay. Keep your eyes locked right here over the next few weeks for more details on all of this, as well as some other VERY exciting developments we can’t talk about yet. And in the mean time, do make sure you check us out on November 2nd, when we’ll be airing some fun little surprises in the daylight savings hour (2am)!
