A Christmas Guide

2014-12-25 13:05:02 by Michael-T-Scott

Christmas is here and can be overwhelming what with all the good tidings, yuletide and unwatned family company. So here's a little something to get you through the season. 



Killer Whales: Episode 5

2014-10-26 14:11:16 by Michael-T-Scott

One of the things I tell first-dates is that it's OK if I pick them up at their home instead of meeting them at a restaurant or other meeting spot. Why? Because I drive a Prius. They should feel safe because you never hear of a Prius owner that's a murderer.


Well, I turned this into the idea for the latest "Killer Whales: Confessions." Hope you enjoy this one as well as the song "Death by Fuel Economy" at the end.




Zombie Zealot

2014-04-06 12:57:47 by Michael-T-Scott

I've never been a fan of the whole 'zombie' craze and I don't do material that has a short shelf life (e.g. pop culture or parodies... Those are just too easy). So I wanted to see if I could take a subject I think is played out and put an original view on it. I came up with the idea of a religious zombie. Has it been done before? I don't know, I don't keep up with this shit, but I made something with a popular subject and didn't want to lock myself in an oven while I was making this. I hope you enjoy.


Here's the kind folks that helped on this (including me):

Gregory Goat: Angry M.D.

2013-10-12 15:47:31 by Michael-T-Scott

Worked with a couple of fun artists on this one. Backgrounds and Gregory's design by Jami Cardwell (http://jami-c.tumblr.com/) and all other character designs by John Varvir (http://rivrav.tumblr.com/). I wanted a background style reminiscent of the old UPA cartoons and think Jami delivered beautifully.

Fun facts:
- Gregory is based on a former co-worker. A peach of a gal with some... Temperament issues.
- "St. Travis Medical" is named after the late Travis the Chimp.
- Gregory yells Al Pacino's great line from Heatin Italian.

Hope you enjoy another conversation with an incarcerated orca.

So for the past year my YouTube channel has been under contract with a network. Thanks to their neglect, the channel suffered and I pretty much went on strike, not putting up any new material. Yesterday, that contract ran out and now I'm back to bring life into the channel once again. So come on by, kick some tires, maybe TP the front yard, but feel free to pass it along and subscribe if you like the brand of junk I'm pushing.

Thanks for the support, gang!

We've received quite a bit of press on our recent news that we're producing an animated film featuring Phil Hartman. You can check all the news out here.

If you're a fan of Phil's (or are just curious about the project), be a fan of the film's Facebook page and get exclusive production updates and rare never-before-seen or heard material from Phil Hartman.

Thanks for everyone's support. All of us are really excited to make this happen!
