“The Jiggler” Score

April 20th, 2010

Okay, so it’s not the stand-alone Auto-Tune song from last night’s “The Jiggler,” but it’s about 72 times better. Adventure Time composer Casey James Basichis was kind enough to make the episode’s full score available to me and you.

Click here to listen.

I totally agree with Lucinda Michelle when she Tweeted, “I mean seriously, @AdventureTimeCN has some seriously wonderful scoring…beyond crystal castles good. beyond 8-bit good. Srsly. Wow!”

Seriously.I don’t know beans about the 8-bit or crystals castles, but I will say this. As with the short way back when, Casey’s scoring is an integral part of Adventure Time while like the cartoon as a whole, distinctive and distinguishable. We’re lucky he’s on board.

P.S. Auto-Tune? Twitter? 8-bit? Am I on Mars?

Different Times of Day in Ooo

October 8th, 2009

Treehouse

In the old days of animation - say, pre-1986 - it was an unwritten rule all action had to be set out-of-doors on a cloudless afternoon around 3:00 p.m. Now, however, it’s common to see all times of day represented within a single eleven-minute cartoon. This makes more work for the color stylists and background painters, of course. Here are three different pairs of backgrounds from “The Jiggler”, each set more or less the same design-wise (from Ghostshrimp and/or Santino Lascano). Adventure Time’s background painting is handled by Sue Mondt and Martin Ansolabehere under the art directorship of Nick Jennings.
