“Original Cartoons, Volume 2: The Frederator Studios Postcards 2006-2010

May 8th, 2010

Original Cartoons, Volume 2
It took a while to get the gallies right, but the second collection of Frederator’s postcards is available over at Amazon.com (the first one’s there too).

Eric Homan is our resident postcard collector, but that’s not the main reason he has an insightful interview here. Entertainment journalist Michael Goldman wanted to get the scoop on how Eric developed the last round of big ideas in our Random! Cartoons shorts incubator, including the background on Fanboy & Chum Chum and Adventure Time. Their cards, and all 39 of the original Random!s, are included in the book.

And that’s not all! The complete postcard series 6 through 9 are here, including the black & whites, and the History of Frederator set. And, the non-series Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! collectibles that were made for the International Licensing Shows, and a bunch of stragglers that were produced here and there over the years. Plus, a preface by the guy we work for at Sony Pictures Animation, Bob Osher, and a short introduction from moi.

So, check it out. Broke? Too cheap? Here’s the free PDF download:

The chronic bickersons Penalty and Lloyd had argued their way through a memorable short from The Meth Minute 39 and their show Nite Fite became a leading candidate for a series spin-off. The Digitas advertising agency’s John McCarus agreed, and rapidly found a major sponsor in MarsStarburst Candies, a first for Frederator Studios’ internet productions and distributor Next New Networks.

Frederator Postcards Series 9.4Frederator Postcard Series 9.4, mailed March 26, 2010

As soon as Nickelodeon production Prexy Albie Hecht heard the title ChalkZone he was in (he’s totally a high concept guy). Good thing. I’d lured co-creator Bill Burnett (whom I met through Albie in the first place) from NY to la-la land, and Larry Huber was overseeing all the lunatics in our shorts asylum. It was great when they got their series –the second spin off from Oh Yeah! Cartoons– which launched as the highest rated premiere in Nick history as of 2002.

Butch Hartman’s FOP got the go-ahead for series production while I was in the midst of a cross continent family move, but Butch didn’t lose a beat. He staffed up and started one of the great juggernauts in modern American cartoons.

A Marv Newland postcard

There’s a ton of Marv Newland news in the hopper.

Postcard from Marv Newland

Tomorrow night, Marv’s got a gallery opening of postcards in Serignan, France. If you can’t make it, you can check out some of the cards at his Marvcards site (and those who know Marv best can marvel at the fact that there’s a website!).

Marv Newland
We’ve mentioned before that Frederator was producing a short film of Marv’s over the last couple of years, and, lo and behold, the subject matter is… postcards! Well, Postalolio is finished (complete credits are below the fold) and started it’s festival run. It started at the Edinburgh International Film Festival this past Saturday, and continues on to Brazil’s Anima Mundi Festival throughout July.

Postalolio (sample #1), by Marv Newland from fredseibert on Vimeo.

I wanted to give a taste of what you’re missing, and assure you I’ll let you know the rest of the worldwide screening schedules where you might see the film yourself in person.

Go Marv!
