Once upon a time I worked on a tv series featuring a stoner and a talking Great Dane. "What's New?" was part of the title, but the irony of it was that not much of anything was new on the show.
However, the first couple of seasons were very fun to work on, because the crew was silly. Silliness is a beautiful thing that is sorely lacking in the animation biz these days, mainly due to the INSANE schedules that we're under(see previous blog entry where I was whining about deadlines and my own insecurities).
Below is a prime example of crew silliness. This was taped on a now-no-longer-existing Wild West backlot somewhere in Borebank. The Wild West lot has been replaced with a seethingly boring New England set.
ANYWAY, have fun watching the clip. I'm not in it, but I was there, and you can hear my cackling in the background:
AND, more Redneck Theater. It's actually getting scary.
