We're Making a Cartoon (That Doesn't Suck!)

          So as you may or may not know, we're developing this crazy bastard child of a web comic into a cartoon, and by cartoon, we mean "Adult Swim" kind of cartoon, not like a "Dora the Explorer" kind of cartoon. It's going to be on Youtube, which is like the digital equivalent of cable access television, except people actually watch it. And no, we aren't going to bombard you with cat videos, or 20 minute vlog rants, or some kind of weird Indie style of comedy where the joke is that you're not supposed to get the joke. It's a real, laugh-out-loud cartoon.
           We've only just gotten off the ground, and it's going to be a long road to come, but we wanted to update you guys on how things were coming along. And we figured what better way to show you how challenging it's been than for a montage of our hard work.

First, we had to unlock the secret formula to comedy perfection.



Brandon's been boning up on his cartooning skills...


While Bryan's been boning up on his welding skills...


...We're still not quite sure how that one's going to help.

Of course, physical training is just as important as artistic fitness...



We're even tapping into our musical talents. You see, music is going to be a huge part of the show...



We even consulted a voodoo shaman named Jabbuweh (for good luck, of course)...



Because really, what's the difference, amirite?
But more than goats, it's meant the sacrifice of time, as in a slew of late night brainstorming sessions.




But it's all been worth it, to lead up to our very first cartoon...










Photobucket

            That was worth 126 hours of work, right?

            Kidding.

            We DO have a cartoon in development, but unfortunately we can't show you anything... yet. Just know that it's unlike anything you've seen from us before. We've got software and audio recording equipment. We've got our first season (12 episodes) written. We even have a theme song.

             So until it airs (which won't be for a few months) we'll keep you updated of our progress. In the meanwhile, we're still doing the blog as always, and we have some more fun news for you on Thursday (and no, it's not that Brandon saved up enough money for the sexual reassignment surgery).

Cheers and stay classy, friends,
B&B

  3. This is a great idea, but there are potential perils and pitfalls in making such a transition.

    Might I suggest adding a wacky but lovable nephew to your cast?

    Make him come to live with Brandon for some sort of vague reason.

    Also, he should probably have a dog.

    And a catch phrase.

    There. You're going to go far. Thank me later.

  4. A cartoon show? That's awesome and I can't wait to see what you guys come up with. Will Peggy Sue be making an appearance?

    ReplyDelete
  5. Congratulations. Software - is it adobe flash? What makes you think that Steve Jobs demise would resurrect Adobe's life? We still have his evil minions wands in everyone's hand.
    Paris Hilton is ugly and untalented - oh! that's a shocker?!
    (I didnt skip your post and read only the tags, I may do that only to movie reviews of movies made from books)

    I am actually mimicking Brandon now, trying some cartoon posts :) and I am already good in wielding and tinkering stuff.

    And I want Peggy sue sacrificed for all the good reasons, all the more, chop that inspirer - Twilight lady. The world cant thank you enough if you could do that.

    Take care of Brandon, looks like the hanging meat is trying to hook him and trade the place with him. Feed him Bryan, please feed him.

  6. Well maybe with the money you make from this show he can finally have the surgery and stop living a lie. I'm really looking forward to it guys. But don't ever kill of Peggy Sue. I think she's too stupid to die.

  7. No matter what you two produce, I'm sure it will be hilarious, and worth the wait.

    Good luck! And I am really looking forward to laughing at your new cartoon, soon.

    ReplyDelete
  8. LMAO I cracked up at Young Skreezy. I feel like that was based on a real person, but I can't really put my finger on it ;) lol!! Can't wait to see the actual cartoon you guys created! It should be great!

    ReplyDelete
  9. I'm so excited! I just know this is going to be something really good and popular - and to be here at the start means I get to gloat. I will be there at the forefront, nodding my head and smiling condescendingly on all newcomers. It will be brilliant.

    Even your little animated stick-figures made me laugh ;-)... I'm really can't wait to see what you guys come up with. By the way, what are you doing for publicity in general?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Okay I may as well ask, can I do a random bit part voice in your new cartoon? :D

    ReplyDelete
  11. LMAO I'm sure it is going to be awesome, can't wait to see it! And what is wrong with cat videos?..lol

    ReplyDelete
  12. Can't wait until it airs. Is it going to be the same style as your web comics?

    ReplyDelete
  13. I can't wait to see what you guys have been working on! I can't even imagine how much your lives have changed over the last few months trying to get everything together, now put it into the actual project. Good luck you two!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I am intrigued. I am mesmerized. I can't wait.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Good to see Peggy Sue making a triumphant return, as well as a stab at Keystone Light.

    And now that you mention it, I do see the resemblance between her and Paris. Uncanny.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'm sure it will be pure epic hilarity.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Wow. I had no idea how many fine-tuned skills it takes to make a cartoon. Welding? Punching slabs of meat? Not to mention the grueling late night brainstorming sessions...!

    I am officially blown away by the dedication you are both giving to this project. This cartoon is going to be the best thing to hit YouTube since "Guy on a Buffalo". ;)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Oh, what a load of BS. We all know there's only one thing you boys are "boning" up on.

    ReplyDelete
  19. So we will just be here waiting....for months? Well I look forward to many months from now when we can see your cartoon! So exciting!

    I can't help but wonder though...just what kind of cartoon it is when you need to practice welding?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Boned up, you said boned, hahaha. You have to hear that in Beevus or Butthead's voice. This sounds really exciting guys and a helluva lot of work. We'll all be there to watch it when it comes out. Keep working and stop sleeping!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Great, can't wait! You guys will be needing lots of beer to keep your strength up- get drinking!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'm looking forward to it! I'm sure it will be a great hit, as you guys are the bomb! (Not in a bad way, but in a good way!)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Ooh OOH! Can I do some voiceover work for it! I've always wanted to do that, and would love to lend a hand where I can.

    It means some hardcore promotion on my end....

    ReplyDelete
  24. Thanks for not killing off Peggy Sue. I might have had to boycott.
    I'm definitely looking forward to your web comic. Keep up the hard work!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hooray! Peggy Sue is back. Hopefully you get paid for this cartoon in something more than internet credits.
    I really look forward to what you're going to create.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thanks for the update - it's always nice to see the creative process... especially when it involves welding! :) Really looking forward to the cartoon... I'm interested to hear the theme song!

    ReplyDelete
  27. You sleazy corporate type up there.

    ReplyDelete
  28. That is so exciting for you two! Sounds like a lot of progress has been made. Way to go!

    Bryan, have you considered working on your sewing skills instead of your welding? That way you could sew a gorilla suit, so no matter how cold it is, you are warm enough to make as many "beat your meat" your jokes as necessary?

    ReplyDelete
  29. LOL. You guys are going to be great! The next Seth McFarland and Seth Green. Don't forget us when you make it big!

    ReplyDelete
  30. This is gonna be really cool. Can't wait!

  31. This is exciting. Something.. original.. to be seen.. from YOU guys. Because a lot of other bloggers could mention it and it would make me churn. Here however.. oh something is in store. My hopes are high and you should work on lowering them before it airs.

    ReplyDelete
  32. You mean there will be movement in the future? Excellent...

    ReplyDelete
  33. I love most of Adult Swim, so really...I can't wait :))

    ReplyDelete
  34. That was cool, I always enjoy visiting your site.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Brandon hung his meat on a hook so he could beat it? Owww...

    ReplyDelete
  36. You fellas just spew creativity, dontcha?

    Can't wait.

    ReplyDelete
  37. My favorite moment in all of this is definitely the chick riding that sweet metal shark.

    Check me out at http://chooplah.blogspot.com to see how to get revenge via pencil and how to become impregnated via shoe.

  38. wow great news - really looking forward to seeing it

    ReplyDelete
  39. I can't wait for that webcomic. If it's half as good as your blog entries, it'll take youtube by storm. Good luck!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I have no doubt that the cartoon will be amazing. Even if you wanted to make it a bunch of farting stick figures your faithfuls would still love it. Well...maybe but it's better to not test that. :) Get to work guys...we'll be anxiously waiting.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Ohh exciting! Can't wait to see it!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Loved the "Rocky" reference, but the "sacrificial Slim Jim and a Keystone Light" made me laugh out loud - LITERALLY!

  43. I am looking forward to seeing it! I've always wanted to do something like that myself.

    ReplyDelete
  44. If you want to appeal to the cool kids, your theme song better be a dubstep ditty. And throw in that cow. It was born to be a start.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Yes! Whose marvelous idea was that?!?!?! Can't wait to see this, make sure you link me!!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I want an purple beret like artist Brandon. With a hat like that I think you could paint a masterpiece

    ReplyDelete
  47. I'm sure you guys will pull it off! Can't wait.

    ReplyDelete
  48. No not that kind of CHANGE - Pleeze!

    Some funny stuff there.

    I think I met Jabbuweh last Tuesday, minus the goat.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Any cartoon borne of absinthe and meat beating is bound to be good.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Oh yeah! A dream of mine come true. Don't get wigged out that I dream of you two(it's always in comic form, anyway), but do get wigged out when I ask if I may make some kind of special appearance. Just don't wig too hard, as I'd love an answer.

    ReplyDelete
  51. This is gonna be awesome! I can't wait to see it!

    What time is it? BEER:30!

    If you guys are gonna voice it yourselves you might wanna practice your speaking! It can be harder to talk endlessly then you might think!

    ReplyDelete
  52. The worst part about it? You made a Paris Hilton joke when you should've clearly gone for a Stevie Nicks joke.

    Sure it's been done before (South Park), but hey it's still true! Have you listened to The Gypsy? Jesus christ, so much warbling.

    ...lol Paris Hilton though.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I did make something like what you made with Pivots. Except it was worse. A bad fight.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Aw, I missed that little handicapped cow, haha. Can't wait for it guys!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I am crazy proud of y'all! I am 100% positive that it will be hilarious. Oh and remind me to tell you about how my mom wants to be a voodoo princess. Yeah.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Somehow, I hope welding comes in handy...LOL

    ReplyDelete
  57. If it's anything like "Sonic for Hire," I'm down for checking it out! Good luck!

  58. Um, I declare the day you premiere episode one to be this year's Christmas.

    Seriously stoked.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Ow, my balls! lol... FIN.


    I can't wait for your cartoon, and the musical accompaniment of Yung Skreezy.

    ReplyDelete
  60. You are on the right track.... kicking people in the balls is THE way to get huge YOU TUBE ratings!
    Cant wait for the videos!!

    ReplyDelete
  61. This is so exciting! Can't wait to see the first episode :D

    ReplyDelete
  62. I am excited to see this. How many people does it take to put it together?
