“Nick’s History Is As Good As Goo”

February 2nd, 2008


Click here to see a Washington Post review of the recently published book, Not just Cartoons: Nicktoons! by the ubiquitous Jerry Beck. The article mentions a couple of what Scott Moore calls the book’s highlights, including “A history of Oh Yeah, Cartoons! The series’ 120 shorts included the first appearances of future hits Chalk Zone, Fairly OddParents and My Life as a Teenage Robot” and “title pages of the first five years of Fairly OddParents.” It’s a Washington Post Book of the Week!

(Scott, Scott, Scott. They’re called title cards, not title pages. Sheesh.)

Random! NYC Screening Wrap-Up

May 24th, 2007


If you missed Tuesday night’s ASIFA-East Random! Cartoons screening, you missed ten shorts and some talk with questions and answers. It was extra cool to see our New York City-based Random! creators. Thanks to all the filmmakers, ASIFA-East, SVA, Dave Levy, and the 100+ folks who turned out.

Three things that came up during the Q&A you might want to know: Frederator’s trying real hard to get another order of shorts; the latest from Nick is that this latest crop of cartoons will air toward to the end of the year; and Bill Plympton animated “Gary Guitar” by himself in about a month.

From left to right, the folks in the above shot are: Bill Plympton, Manny Galán, Dave Levy, Alan Goodman, Dana Galin, Tom Selleck, Fred Seibert, Diane Kredensor, (not in picture, but who were there: John Dilworth and Dan Meth).

Thanks to Ryan Sias for taking the picture.
