holy shit! get this on the air somehow! hey can i send you my blog?

Paul said...

That video's one of the top 10 weirdest things I've ever seen. --Kudos.

frncs said...

There's nothing better than Canada jokes in a good animated series.

Josh Boelter said...

I can't believe you're having trouble getting this produced! Unfortunately I'm not rich and can't help there. If I was, I'd be funding my own (film) project with cash rather than credit cards. I've got to believe someone will come through and get this on television. I hate most TV, but I'd watch this!

Cheers,

Josh

JohnK said...

Hey folks!

start clicking through the ads you se on my blog.

I supposedly will get some cash for every click through!

Just click it then come back!

Thanks,

John

Sure, I'll link to your blog for the chance that you'll produce something even half as entertaining as the early Ren & Stimpy! antibogon (see blogroll in the sidebar).

No, thank you!

This is what the animation industry needs. A shot in the arm and a kick in the head.

don't forget to remove the cancer it's got up the ass.

awesome - so glad to see this site - and this video - had i won the powerball - I would have hooked you up with production costs!

Phil said...

Rooooot beer?!!!! what the hell. I am amused.

Brian Romero said...

That page with Jimmy and George at the barber really makes me miss 'Comic Book'. Did you guys finish any more stories or issues that haven't been published?

It's too bad studios don't put short cartoons before their features again. They could get me to buy a ticket to just about anything if there was a 8 minute Spumco short cartoon before the movie!

Jorge Garrido said...

Hey, John, ever heard of Maddox? He's a pretty famous webmaster of www.TheBestPageInTheUniverse.net The site is where he puts his amazing and hilarious rants against anything and anyone who pisses him off but his writing is very intelligent, especially his older stuff! And he's a huge fan of yours! He used that George Liquor "Don't ever call me a Democrat" button a few years ago and he once mentioned that the only cartoon worth watching is Ren & Stimpy! Check him out at www.thebestpageintheuniverse.com or maddox.xmission.com His site gets thousands of hits per day, if you got in touch with Maddox you could link to each other and both get some free hits!

John, you eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeediot,
Why don't you just get the checks from that fag Sponge Bob (who wouldn't have a career if it wasn't for Ren & Stimpy); he owes you BIG TIME!
Kee-Ripes! Somebody light a match!
BTW, can I still get Log on Ebay?
Miss your madness; I'll sends you ten bucks a month if it'll help!!!
Peace out!

Dynamo! said...

These stories have the potential to fuel some absolutely classic shorts. I for one hope the stars align and somehow all of our collective enthusiasm for George Liquor is able to bring some execs to their senses.

z0mbi said...

Oh, MAN. That comic page in there had me DROOLING! Dear god I want to see more SPUMCO comics! John K., you are a filthy TEASE.

Please, check out my blog, it's full of my drawings of manly men doing what all god-fearing American men do best. Beating things up!

Josh Boelter said...

All Food and Hair reminds me of a short story I wrote a few years ago where a character visits a doctor who's both a dentist and proctologist; he takes care of orifices on both ends in the same appointment! Unfortunately, the doc is a bit lax about washing his hands as he goes back and forth taking care of the patient. Yes, I've been told I need help.

Ted said...

You may want to make the Barq's movie a link instead of autoloading on the page. The overall page keeps getting bigger and bigger, and in addition to costing someone a bunch of bandwidth, it makes it more and more difficult for folks on dial up to look at the page. The movie itself probably takes around 2 minutes to load on dialup if nothing else is going on. (This is also a reaosn why avatars on comment pages are a bad idea.)

YEAH! We did it! I did it! Finally my vote counted! I'm the big hero! I'm the big hero!

Who Doesn't like root-beer! I also would like to request that a SUPER rich fan helps you out, and then in turn, that fan also buys me some Macaroni salad to go with my root beer.

Not bad, I have the feeling the first one could have more potential, but some of the stories in the previous post looked better for me. Anyway it would probably be much better when finished, none Spumco cartoon has dissapointed me yet.

One story I thought it could really work in animated form is that Slab And Ernie story that was written and not drawed in one of the Spumco comic book (I don't remember if it was issue 1 or 2).

I wonder how you eventually decided George Liquor to be the star of the show. Don't misunderstand me, I love George but for some reason I think Jimmy should be the star of the show, or Jimmy and George (which is very probably what happens in fact) but it's just that Jimmy seems like the "main" character cause he is the naive one and he is in the middle between George and Sody Pop. I don't know if I'm making myself clear.

I would love if you eventually see my site, though I have few chances with so many posters here. Hey, I bet I'm the only one from Spain! I deserve some special trait only for that!

Anyhow, this is my site www.lapaginaderg.tk (it would take you some seconds to be redirect there). I hope you don't bother this kind of self-publicity in your blog.

Keep posting those stories, but save some to the actual cartoons or we will know everything before the shows air!(Anyhow I still would see it, the animation is always so wonderful it doesn't matter you know the story actually).

Bye,

Rober G.

Matt Greenwood said...

You do get money each time someone clicks, but it's really not much at all.

It is strange that you can't get this stuff produced. When you're this well know, I'd have thought it would be easy.

David Germain said...

Hey, John, how did you get that film file onto your blog? I've got a film I made back in animation school that I'd love to put online on my blog.

Anonymous said...

Post your address and I am sure 72 of something will appear!

Gammo said...

Freakin' hilarious. I'm picturing the cartoons... now.

David Germain said...

Also, I'd like to express concern about posting story ideas online. Aren't you afraid of plagiarism?

Mike P said...

Please! Some one has to fund this excellent material!! I would buy this stuff in a heart beat. The bomb shelter episode sounds wicked good!! The food and hair one sounds great too!

Can't wait to see more!

gabriel said...

So, where did this clip come from anyway? Was it self funded?

Culito said...

Dammit! I just shot Heineken outta my nose. That shit ain't cheap, ya know!

Cartoons are the most powerful force for good in the world. Look at the "Cartoon Riots" in the Middle East - There wasnt this kind of reaction when we vaporized thousands of people with "Daisy Cutter" bombs - But get a CARTOON out there and see what kind of reaction you get!

John, you can create Peace in Our Time! Demand an end to Suicide Bombing - Bin Laden take a vow of silence - Hamas make peace with it's neighbors --- or there will be CARTOONS! John will unleash CARTOONS! Rivers will flow with CARTOONS! There will be more CARTOONS than there are virgins in Paradise!

That seems to be the only thing these savages understand!

Jake A. said...

Sweeeeeeetttt Bouncing Boobies!! Awesome John K., had wondered were you had been and when we would be seeing some awesome shit from you again!! Maybe you can get those 7 people in Nebraska that won the millions to fund some Cool shit! Good to see George again...puttin' a link to your site on my Blog now!!

Wow! John K's blog! Pardon the momentary gush of joy. You bet I'll comment if it will get your work somewhere edible by the big consumer chewfactory.

I hope I'm not being redundant (I haven't read every post and I'm new to this blogger thing) but what are the chances of us seeing the Yogi Bear special again somewhere? That would be keen.

Anyways, thanks posting all of the great art so far and for tainting my formative years in front of the tv!

Raph said...

Holey Moley Foley! Pure genius. That bomb shelter script is HIGH-larious!!! I want to see Sody in action and George all paranoid!!! John!!! Get this crackin'!!!!

Have you ever seen Hermann Mejia's characatures in MAD magazine? He's a fantastic artist and they're really damn funny. I think you'd like them.

YAY! i need more george liquor!

Ah, that Spumco goodness I've grown to love...it warms me in places that are unmentionable. Keep up the great work, John!

Anonymous said...

Lovin' the cartoons, man. But do you have to gratuitously self-promote? Let the word spread on it's own, 'cause it will. Your show idea's hilarious. But the web's more organic than you might think. Just keep puttin' up that good shit.

rebecca said...

>>72 virgins at my front door!
I guess that probably won't happen will it? There aren't that many left!
Ha, well not in LA anyway.

Interesting that one of your fav books was written by a direct ascendent of mine. Uncle Tom's Cabin was written by my great grandmother's 2nd cousin.

Charles Brubaker said...

Ugh...I'm, unfortunatly, broke.

How much do you think it will cost to make one? About $500,000 or something (not counting labor fees).

Like I suggested, just put up a PayPal Donate button and you might able to collect enough pocket change to make one.

tim said...

Video!

Maybe if I was one of those people in Nebraska who won the 300 million dollar Powerball I'd be able to help you out...but alas fate has prevented it!

the obfuscator said...

Okay you monkeys-with-money... shakers & movers in the entertainment biz...GET GEORGE LIQUOR ON TEEVEE.... Between the ad revenue and the DVDs, you'll all be rolling in it.

Look, lots of people I know fall all over themselves for DVDs of primitive crap like "Sealab 2021" and the execrable "Aqua Teen Hungerforce" (bleah)... George Liquor would bury all of them.

Somebody, just help John K friggin' do this cartoon, will ya?!?!

Jeff Pidgeon said...

I like the Bomb Shelter script. Perfect for George!

Anonymous said...

WOW , just friggin WOW, this needs funding and I want to see episodes noW!!!!!

fantastic episode ideas.

THese ar the kind of cartoons i want to see on television.

Top marks John K.

BrianB said...

Hey John, did you hear Pixar wanted to bring back 2D shorts before a film, like the old theaters had? Only they'd have 2D shorts, 3D, a trailer for their next film, and the actual film. Or some combination of that. Do you think they would have the balls to want a real cartoon before their flick?

It would be great, if so. They're the only ones in a situation where they can basically put out a mini-animation festival for each new picture. Only problem being they'd probably request original characters and try to tone you down. I don't get it. Spike tv tries to suggest making the show for men, then change their mind. Nick says they want it creator controlled. Huge success, then they change their minds because a real cartoon has a lot of drawings. Back to production style suckage.

I'd say Pixar's worth a shot though if you know any of them. There's something classy about them, and they seem to enjoy a wide variety of great animation. And how do you deny the only classic-esque animator left out there working?

My My My, there are twelve newly minted multi-millionaires in Lincoln Nebraska that need to have a walletectomy. Get thee hence to land of corn and fleece the beejeezus outta those ethanol fueled huskers. They won enough money to finance seventy hunnert thousand cartoons or put Governor Gummischwanz on retainer for his next live action kazoo flick!
Go! Now! Don't wait! Before they invest it in Coco Puff futures or downloadable cow porn! Go!

Mr. K:

If I may ask, how much would it cost for an investor to fund a George Liquor cartoon? Ballpark figure.

Mitch K said...

Hey John, you've been a link on my blog for about a week now (but I don't get many hits on my blog).

These stories are hilarious! It makes me proud to be a Canadian. The bit about Michael and George fist fighting and everyone is happy just cracks me up to no end. Someboy put this guy's stuff on TV!

Why haven't I seen that rootbeer ad before? It's nutty, b'y.

Frankie said...

I think if "American Dad" can get an audience, this show would get an even bigger one! George is a much better character than Stan Smith,(I'm relating them because of the patriotic characterstic, George came first is better) I'm not sure where to go from that! But I know this show would have a big audience!

Matt Greenwood said...

Sorry for posting twice, but I was just wondering about a CGI movie you mentioned once over at MOTLOS, is anything happening with that?

Duck Dodgers said...

We want more!!! Great stuff!

Jeff Schwartzbauer said...

ROOT BEER!

Grand stuff.

This may be totally wrong, but I have to say: I'm hot for George. Crew-cut, conservative father figures make me moist.

We are planning direct to video movies at a budget of about 1.5 million each, but I have some of the money already-about half.

Bomb Shelter sounds hilarious!! These have got to be made.

Yeah that long-neck-ed barber is tha bees knees.

If I hadn't already lost it in the big war to a snaggle-toothed commie whore with a head cold, I'd give my left nut to see him, George and the rest of these foolish freaks in one of those new-fangled, full blown funny moving pictures type thinga-ma-gigs you and all of these kids seem to have such a hard-on for.


I like hypens.

Brian Romero said...

Wow... a 75 minute feature! Is that easier to pitch than a DVD filled with 8 - 15 minute shorts?

I wonder if it's possible to get people to 'pre-order' this direct to DVD cartoon to make up the rest of the budget? I'd certainly pluck down $20 or so even if I'm not going to get the DVD for a year or more.

Thoughts?

Clarke, you whiner!
You got a right nut, aintcha????

You kids talk like 1.5 million is a lot!
Around here, guys drop a million and a half on sushi and prostitutes for lunch! And they're still back to work by two o'clock!

Besides, John's got that Google ad thing up top!
A nickle a click don't sound like much, but look at all the people surfing on! 450 comments?? That's like 22 bucks worth of clicks!

That PayPal button ain't a bad idea. I find it's like impulse buy eyeglass repair kits near the register.
"I don't wear glasses. Never have. But. . .it IS only a buck. . .what the hell, 'and these three eyeglass repair kits, please. .' "

I'm sure that rich guy's out there though. I'm not sure if he's got a blog. But he's out there.

I only enjoy watching old cartoons these days.
But, I'd gladly watch and pay for new cartoons by this man.
Let this stuff be seen by the masses. We'll flock to it, I tell ya!

Vanoni! said...

By the by - if you add "autoplay=false" to your Barqs ad - it won't scream ROOTBEER! everytime a visitor backs into the main page from reading comments.

embed src="/barqs.mov" height="256" width="320" controller="true" autoplay="false"

the raven said...

how many posts we need for the next update? 1,5 million?
That could take more than one day, I presume....

JohnK said...

Hi Vanoni

I'm not smart enough to figure out what all that html stuff means yet but I'll try to get some help to fix the scream!

thanks,

John

mitchL said...

If you've got half, that means someone only has to fork over $750,000? Is that including marketing or just the production? It's probably impossible not to make a profit on that.

Those jerks don't know whats good for them.

I think you need a touching, violin-accompanied montage of Ren & Stimpy shots, overlayed with some kind of vintage filter that will plead to the vicious pirates out there to actually purchase these movies instead of downloading. How could they forsake the man that brought them such joy in the years gone past? They conscience simply woudln't allow it! If there's one thing that will get them to shell out actual cash, this would be it.

And, for chrissakes, I demand to see George Liquor on my TV!

akira said...

Damn! i really want to see this show made! Made Right! Made by John K. with at least 2 seasons so that he can get warmed up and continue to warp animation history.

The synopses from before didn't get my juices flowing, but this stuff has my juices erupting like a guyser!

I thought of a good ending for the bomb shelter... In the aftermath, i think it would be funny if in the heat of all the turmoil they notice about a dozen shy little miniature Sodys and Jimmys emerging from the background like in Lady and the tramp, (at least i think that's how lady and the tramp ended) and everyone goes "Awwwwwww!" a really cute moment..

anyways John you still rule! actually you're like Napoleon exiled on an island, but i hope you make a triumphant return soon!

Big Dog said...

Some Hollywood fat cats got to be reading this and seeing that they can make some sweet cash for sitting on their fat asses and doing nothing, while John K and friends kill themselves trying to make these cartoons move around and talk is a dark damp room with no windows and no AC.

All they have to do is a sign a check and go back to their hot tubs filled with super-models.

It's easy money!

For my brazilian countryfellow who can't write in english, I posted in my blog these default comments so they can put it in here to help!

Nic Kramer said...

This is Off Topic, but I really have a question I wanted to ask you John! In the 1994(or 93) Games Ren and Stimpy episode "Stimpy's Cartoon", there was part I didn't like when they made a bad crack on Walter Lantz who sadly passed away later that year. Was this somthing that Games added or was that what you really thought of him?

JohnK said...

>>Ren and Stimpy episode "Stimpy's Cartoon", there was part I didn't like when they made a bad crack on Walter Lantz


I don't remember a crack about Walter Lantz, but I do like his cartoons.

Especially the mid 40s ones directed by Dick Lundy.

Why can't you get some new Ren And Stimpy cartoons on a network.. there has to be an audience for it.

Ren is too great a character to let die.

Jim Swindelles said...

The man is always trying to keep Mr. K down. Some day they will realize the shear creativity and pure genius of his work. The problem with these corporations is that they are afraid of going against the norm. But, that is what this world needs. We don't need sheep following the herd. We need innovators and trailblazers like John K.

Good Luck Mr. Kricfalusi!

I will continue to support you and all of your work.

I am also requesting to see "The New Adventures of Mighty Mouse" released on dvd.
