Animation Insider has just put online an in-depth interview with your hero and mine, Eric Robles. Conducted by Aaron H. Bynum, the piece covers all things Robles as he gabs about the past, present, and future of Fanboy and Chum Chum.

[W]hat are you most proud of so far, with the first season?

The whole thing. [laughs]

I think the thing I’m really proud of is everything that I’ve learned. A lot of times, for a lot of new creators of shows, sometimes if they’re straight out of school or if it’s their first kind of job, it’s a lot to take in, you know?

Brad Breeck and “Fan vs Wild” Music

My guess is you already know he’s doing an awesome job, so awesome you’d forget Fanboy and Chum Chum is composer Brad Breeck’s first regular series gig. Actually, excluding the not one but two shorts for us at Random! Cartoons, Brad’s cartoon credentials were altogether slim before becoming the unanimous choice to handle music duties on Fanboy, the series. However, he’s done a banner job and we’re glad he’s coming back for season two (enjoy the break while you can, Brad). (Oh. And the very popular theme song? Brad wrote it and performs the song with the L.A. band, The Mae-Shi.)

Take a listen to his score for the episode “Fan vs Wild” right here and you’ll immediately realize what gives Brad the edge in the cartoon composing world (answer: it’s his yodeling).
