The George Liquor Program Spinoffs: 2 Dirty Pussies


a beautiful study of the female behind by Mr. Jay Li.


So here's my dilemna; some fans tells me I go too far and others tell me I don't go far enough.
How do you please everyone?

I figure if I split my cartoons into some for prime time and some strictly for kids I'd have a chance to make more folks happy.

Even prime time poses a problem. What makes something prime-time? Basically, something that kids aren't supposed to watch. A lot of cartoons seem to rely on just breaking taboos or at least cartoon taboos, but there aren't too many left to break are there. Almost everything that was once considered taboo has been done in Family Guy and South Park now - except stuff that takes some drawing ability - like sexy girls!


Katie Rice and I were writing shorts ideas with characters from the George Liquor Program and we thought it would be cool to take Cigarettes the Cat and Bugs Pussy and star them in their own series as 2 horny cats always trying get free shows from human girls.

Here's the outline for I guess what you would call the pilot episode. If you like cartoons that kids aren't supposed to watch, let me know what you think and go for as many comments as possible to induce me to put more stories up! You got me 450 for my last George Liquor story post. Can we beat it? Better enlist your friends!


Peeping Tomcats

Cigarettes The Cat runs into his old buddy, Bugs Pussy. They compare their lifestyles.



Bugs is a can pussy (he lives in a garbage can in an alley), and figures himself to be well set up.
He asks Cigarettes where he lives, and Cigarettes reveals that he is the pet of a hot teenage girl. “Whoa! A CARTOON HUMAN girl?? Sweet deal!” ejaculates Bugs.(Cartoon animals always lust for human women)
Gigarettes shrugs and says “It’s a decent life.”

Cigarettes asks if Bugs wants to see a show that night. “What’s playing?”
"Well at 10:00 my master changes into her pajamas.”
“Hey, that sounds great! Who produced it?” Cigarettes says John K. did and Bugs realizes he’s in for a good show. “That guy delivers the goods, man!!”



That night they are in Sody Pop’s bedroom as she is preparing for bed. “Aw, who’s your new little pussy friend?” she asks as she strokes Bugs’ fur. He purrs and Cigarettes meows in answer.


The two buds act like cats the whole time and pretend that they are not at all aroused by Sody’s changing-except that every time she looks away, they look at each other and make dirty faces and sweat profusely. When she looks back, they resume cat behavior and lick their crotch fur. Bugs mutters under his breath at Cigarettes, “I’m glad I’m not a faggot, man!”




As Sody starts to take off her top, she is complaining, “I hate boys!! They only want one thing!” She slides her pants off and picks up Cigarettes, sits on the edge of her bed and strokes his fur. “I wish boys were more like you guys. You love me for myself!”

Cigarettes winks at Bugs, who is turning purple with lust.
Before she takes of her undies, Cigarettes and Bugs hide her pajamas under the bed.
Then we show her slowly peeling off her bra, then her panties.


We cut to a closed laundry hamper as a pair of panties flies towards it. The lid flips up and Bugs lunges up from the shadows to catch them, and dives back into the hamper as the lid shuts closed.

Interlopers:
Sody is on all fours crawling around the floor looking for her pajamas.



As Bugs and Cigarettes are staring in awe at Sody’s beautiful body. They realize someone else is peering in on the scene: A mouse, a tic sticking out of his fur, and a worm coming out of Bugs’ ear.


They are outraged! Gigarettes pulls a gun on the mouse and yells in a whisper, “You friggin’ pervert! I’ll report you!”



Sody gives up on finding her PJ’s and decides to sleep “au naturel”. She scoops up her pussies and they eagerly crawl into the sack with her.
The End!



So that's just one of a few side stories we came up with for some shorts about characters from the George Liquor Program. Want more? Gimme them comments!

hey John,

How old are you?

Is this going to be a Weekend Pussy Hunt serial?

If it is..cool!

kungfukoi said...

Well Said John!

You had me at 'pussy'.

lastangelman said...

I miss Bugs Pussy, that is a great character, a real alley cat.Funny scenario, almost thought you were reciting a scene from Weekend Pussy Hunt.

BrianMORANTE said...

Are you and Katie like Doc Brown and Marty Mc Fly?
The cartoon looks cool.

Ivan D said...

Bloody hilarious! I would only change the bit of dialogue between Bugs Pussy and Cigarettes the Cat to say 'mistress' instead of 'master.'
I love the bit where Cigarettes pulls out the gun on the mouse.

akira said...

awesome john, i'd love to see it.. i don't know why you think an adult cartoon has to be dirty, though. and i don't think showing actual nipples or whatever makes a cartoon chick any hotter than any of the classic cartoon babes...

anyways, i hope that you get some good people to help you with your stories next time you get a series greenlit... i've got the feeling you might have George Lucas syndrome: where everyone working for you thinks everything coming out of your mouth is the theory of relativity, and tells you how great it is.

suggestion for this story: give sody a hot song to sing.. i think that it could make this short a lot more memorable and put sody in her rightful place in cartoon history along with fine company like betty boop and red-hot riding hood.

"I figure if I split my cartoons into some for prime time and some strictly for kids I'd have a chance to make more folks happy."

... but will that make you happier!

It's like the classic struggle of good and evil. One feels great, one feels good, but is it sustainable.

Do we please our selves or the masses?

Wonderfully detailed derriere lets see more!

nightwing said...

hahaha...thats great, i like seeing the roughs too

JohnK said...

>>
... but will that make you happier!

Yes, because I like both audiences.

Anonymous said...

This is a comment for the 450. By the by, I think that the reason that Ren and Stimpy was so sccesful is that it could be enjoyed by everyone. You had a great quote on some internet interview, where the interviewer was commenting that ren and stimpy was a kids show that parents enjoyed too, and they asked something about your intent and you said something like "Anybody can watch it, your cat could watch it." Another good quote by you was something along the lines of... "our intended audience was everyone."

Anonymous said...

John, I'm a girl, and I dunno, I like the pg or g versions more. I like the stroking the cat and "I wish I could find more guys like you" idea.

The thing about doing super sexy stuff is that you get the trenchcoat crowd and then you're relegated to those people and those circles, in my opinion.

lastangelman said...

Big Al said:Do we please our selves or the masses?

The best cartoonists always without fail please themselves - and the audiences will follow. Management should get out of the way, rip up those polls and studies and reports and let the art happen and then commerce will follow.

scottdiggs said...

OH yeah, sounds good. Count me in.

JohnK said...

>>Another good quote by you was something along the lines of... "our intended audience was everyone."

Yes and it still is, that's why I like to make a variety of ideas because no one story or kind of story will pleas eeveryone, so I make lots of stories and each one will probably offend someone but then they have lots more to choose from.

Obviously guys will like sexy girl stories more than girls, so should I not make them because some girls aren't as amused?

And honestly while I made the original Ren and Stimpy for kids, adults watched it too and South Park is supposedly made for adults yet kids watch it too.

The only reason I label the stuff at all is for the suits because they aren't gonna put something risque on for kids even though the kids will come watch it anyway.

Anonymous said...

It would be great to see a cartoon for adults not trying to be edgy.

"2 Dirty Pussies" ain't it. But "2 Dirty Pussies" sounds fun.

I can totally see Bugs and Cigarettes starting their own line of "Girls Gone Wild" dvds.

Duck Dodgers said...

so we gotta do more than 450 posts?
Ok, we'll try. I will talk to friends,
The Cigarettes the Cat show sounds like a very strange, original and funny idea. I want it!!

Simon said...

Yeah, the gun on the mouse is funny, but the "i'll report you" is even better. Especially given the fact that it doesn't bother with the usual cats eat mice theme, which is fairly standard cartoon fare.

Maybe have the cats hide the pjs in the hamper, instead, since if sody got down on the floor to look around, she'd probably look under her bed. It's less likely she'd look in the clothes hamper. Though, that might anticipate the flipping up lid/hamper devouring underwear with bugs snapping out like the tongue of a frog gag too much.

JohnK said...

"

It's called "The Flintstones".

Anyway I never try to be "edgy". I try to deal with honest human feelings in an entertaining ironic way-it's just that some of them can't be dealt with on kids' TV.I don't think there's anything at all edgy about liking girls. Most guys do.

"I read Playboy for the articles. I'm not interested in sexy girls."

BrianB said...

Not bad. I never understood animating actual nudity though. I can't imagine tv networks ever letting you air it. With all the work animating is, you gotta be sure your episode will air. Unless you're making them for dvd.. The story is cool though, and I really like the skinnier of the 2 cats 'look'. I also love the idea of a large cast on the George Liquor show.

It is quite the dilemna though. I still like the idea of cartoon creators making cartoons for themself and their peers. I'd rather it not be for any demographic, but a thin line that allows for anyone to enjoy them. Not that I won't watch your shows if they don't play that line. I'm open to whatever.. But for example, I don't like Drawn Together and the lesbian makeout scene they advertised all over the place for "next week's episode". I thought that was just a sad display of pointlessness. Neither funny nor entertaining. I'd hate for Spumco to dip into that type of humor.

Though if you didn't know, they have their own fans now amazingly enough. Maybe Comedy Central is the place to go. At least they'll let you air a full season. I think creators should be proud of their show though. If I wasn't of mine, I could care less if it was getting ratings - I'd want to do something else.

I still believe the original R&S run had the best ideas. I liked the space operas, Stimpy's invention, the nature show, and Man's Best Friend. And Ren Seeks Help fits right in there and is as funny as any of them. My personal belief is that these cartoons most tapped into what you thought was both visually and narratively cool, funny, and entertaining. They were the most honest to you and the boys at Spumco. Not sure if that's true or not, but just my belief.

I'd like to see a show with all those types of stories. I think networks are scared of where you could go though. Nudity and perverted stories. Of course we love them, but they'll be so quick to pull it if it doesn't get ratings right away. And shows need time to get their following. Maybe you need to hold those 'toons that threaten executives back, for when you do get ratings. When you get ratings, then you got power. When you got power, you can damn near do whatever you want. There's a better chance for the shows success I think if you ease them in and gain their trust though. The fans will be there no matter what. I think the plot elements "maturity" is more superficial. It was the energy of the characters and thier performance that was so great. And their personalities carried us to such weird and wonderful places.

Working with Nickelodeon may have been a good thing actually. Because no matter what - you guys would did what you loved, but it was balanced enough to not scare the shit out of them. It got you aired a lot and the fans dug it. If it stayed you behind that show, I'm sure they would have followed you wherever you went. It was stupid of Nickelodeon to do what they did. Completely stupid. Anyway..

I just think making cartoons for other people always seems to be a bad idea, be it for older or younger audiences. That's one thing I really agreed with Chuck Jones about. I know a lot of people that hate Son of Stimpy, and yet you did it to satisfy Nickelodeon you said in a R&S commentary. Other people hate the gay jokes and the over-edginess of APC, and yet a lot of it you did to satisfy Spike tv I've heard. I think it's a lesson that ultimately neither are a better option than the other - making episodes for kids or adults.

Point being of all this.. Just that I'd watch anything you guys did, but I'd be most excited if you did them for yourself. Push where Nickelodeon wouldn't let you go, if you want, or pull back if you're not feeling like it's adding anything. Trust your judgement and taste of what's most enjoyable in a cartoon. I don't know anyone else with such great taste and enthusiasm for cartoons.

Good luck. I'll be sure to keep pushing your blog.

These are meant to be podcasts or DVD shorts and not x-rated. Maybe we would do them where you don't see any nudity for the first play but you could choose to order an uncensored version. They'd still be merely soft Rs though.

David Germain said...

hey John,

How old are you?


Chet, John is turning 51 this year (or he has already).

Actually, John, I think both men and women would like the story you drew up here. Men will of course enjoy Sody's body and empathize with the cats' lust. Girls though would relate to Sody's feelings about men and how some treat her as a sexual object. They might even find it hilariously ironic that she makes this statement all the while surrounded by this masculine lechery.

I also like how you named your character Sody after Bob Clampett's wife. Is she smiling about it from Heaven or an apartment somewhere?

JohnK said...

>>

Well I hope so, because a man and a woman wrote it.

Most girls I know like to look at sexy girls.

But someone will always hate something you do. There's no getting around it.

She is a very nice lady and still very much with us.

mce said...

This sounds awesome.
Have you thought about seeing if the itunes music store would carry these in their videos section?

Frankie said...

The women I know would have no problem seeing that story! They would like it because its well animated and funny, and conveys a message. Those are whats important!
I actually think they would like seeing a female character in a cartoon, as they aren't as common as males. I can't wait to see you and your animators new stuff!

Matt Greenwood said...

I really like the idea, and I hope it gets made quickly. I think it would do really well.

But, the one thing I don't like is that there doesn't seem to be much of an ending. I just don't think it wraps up enough. I loved how in Rubber Nipple Salesmen where to wrap it up, you had a really energetic scene thrown in and it really worked. But this just sort of ends without a twist and only a bit of a joke.

But maybe it ends different visually.

But overall it looks like something I like most people will want to see.

centurion said...

Yeah!!!!!!!
I love it!!
Hilarious cartoons with perverted animals and gorgeous girls... the ultimate in adult entertainment!
Awesome! Looking forward for that show!

JohnK said...

>>I just don't think it wraps up enough. I loved how in Rubber Nipple Salesmen where to wrap it up, you had a really energetic scene thrown in and it really worked. But this just sort of ends without a twist and only a bit of a joke.

These cartoons are super short, just in and out of the idea with a few gags.

Maybe you didn't notice but Stimpy's Invention had no ending. I ran out of time so just stopped after the jokes were done!

stefan said...

I don't get why they hid the clothes.

I think I need some more really big pictures of Sody undressing to help me understand it better :)

BrianB said...

Oh yeah, and the title, Peeping Tomcats", is great. I really love well painted title cards at the beginning of cartoons - perfect for a great title. You should keep them up for at least 4 or so seconds to let them sink in. The again, I think you do..

It seems like the only time I see good-looking cartoony girls is when they're coming from Spumco.

Dr. Jean Poole - whatta foxy whiz-bangin' brainiac!

Sody Pop - is it wrong that I dreamed of a girl like her back in high school?

Even Björk seemed a bit hotter in that animated bathtub!

crolyss said...

more more more!!!!!!!!! more more more!!!!!!!!!!!!! yes, this would definitly be a good show. its true, alot of the taboo stuff has been done except except well drawn hot chicks. i found that when i was in college studying animation i was one of only a very minute percentage interested in actually drawing women! can you believe... most of the people were men, and of course were pretty all inadequate at life drawing! shocking that anyone in animation can do life drawing...

Frankenstein's creature said...

Terrific stuff!

Robin said...

John, sometimes I worry about you. That's quite the febrile imagination you've got going on, frankly it's a wonder your hands are steady enough to do the drawings. Still, I'd watch this filth for sure.

Nicolas Martinez said...

Gorgeous girls, John. My favorite is the redhead in yellow, at the top right corner.

Blanco said...

I never liked South Park...I don't know how people can stand watching junk that is so poorly drawn.

I mean the drawing are horribles.

It's good to see that some people care about delivering quality.

Matt Greenwood said...

I guess it should work if it's a really short cartoon, and I probably just got a different image in my head.

Also, if this was a podcast, would it be a fee per cartoon or more like a sponsorship thing? I'd much rather a podcast rather than a DVD, only because not a lot of DVDs come out here unless they're pretty mainstream. We only just got Ren and Stimpy!

Joel Bryan said...

Wow! You guys are the only people I know who make cartoon girls sexy. I mean really sexy... like real girls are!

I think one problem is even if you do a prime time cartoon for adults, most people assume anything animated is strictly for kids. So when they see adult content, they freak out. When "The Simpsons" first came out, a lot of my more conservative-minded (I use that without political connotations) relatives were outraged that someone would aim such material at their children.

I had to keep explaining "No, it's not for them... it's for YOU!" but they wouldn't listen.

Dustin said...

I'm so glad a splash page was made of Spumco's sexy girls. I especially love the one of the woman trying to cover herself up. I love bit lip expressions like that. I also love the Sody on the far right, since her pose is just so innocent.

That story was great, John! It's such a simple concept (peeping tom.... cats), but the execution of the story is brilliant! It's great to see Cigarettes and Bugs again too.

I know a lot of people who would adore this cartoon, including girls. I'll make sure to put the word out!

Pedro Vargas said...

wow! very nice John!! I hope it gets made!!

Anonymous said...

Hi John, Im a longtime fan in Australia, 24 yr old Adele and im in the animation industry crowd. Normal history, watched Ren and Stimpy till it was taken off kids tv etc etc. Anyhoo, I listened to your interview you had on the ABC australian radio station sometime last year and I really enjoyed your comments on the industry, computer animation and drawing sexy girls...I myself draw girls, and sexy and Im a girl! Im not gay (not that there is anything wrong with that) as some may tease me about, I just think drawing women is fun. So power to you John K and I look forward to further news from you. P.S. I was sad to not see your tour come to Brisbane in QLD when it hit Australia in 2004

mark said...

Way to go! Peeping Tomcats looks super entertaining. When I see these drawings i think; sexy cool fun.

I like the attitude that comes across.
As far as the cartoon nudity, Go For It! it's not over the top, and it's not trying to be funny by being offensive and edgy like how DT will shock the viewer into laughing at the gross betty boop chick. ew.

Your idea has that "Jessica Rabbit" sexy element.

very cool stuff!

Mish said...

Haha dude that's banging! HAaha! I would sure love to see this getting made. It's true though, you are pushing limits, which is pretty fun. Haha.

cartoonjoe said...

Now this...THIS is my kind of blog!! Barenekikid teenage chicks snugglin' up with horny pussycats...it's what *snif* DREAMS are made of!! (feel free to visit my yahoo group, Cartoonjoe's Naughty Cartoon page, for similar stories in this vein! You'll be glad you did!!)

nathaniel said...

this is awesome.

tons of innuendo. i wonder how much nudity you can get away with if the cartoon character is female? the answer's probably zero. so it's all about suggestion and a shot from behind here and there with the cats looking at her from in front.

Davis Chino said...

This trio is the best, most interesting, most obviously sustainable group of characters to come out of Spümco since R&S. It's easy to imagine you making an hilarious, original series of shorts for them.

Cigarettes and Bugs have so much going for them; there have been A LOT of cartoons involving cats--almost a century's worth!!--but I can't think of a single one that's approached the promise of "Gruesome Twosome" or esp. "Kitty Kornered" in over 60 years--until this.

But the really brilliant part is Sody. The unexpected way you, Spümco and Ms. Katie Rice so obviously love this character is what makes her compelling. There's love in the attention her drawings and animation receive, and in the ultimately sympathetic treatment she always gets in the few stories I've seen with her; clearly she's important, not just window dressing.

But that's what's so frustrating!

I think we all get most suspiscious of your motives, and of our own positive response to the many levels of Sody's appeal, when her actual screen time becomes too concerned with animating the motions of proper nipple follow-through, (as important as that is). Introducing full, prolonged nudity into the cartoons seems like too much of a good thing. I feel like we're going through the 60's big screen exploration of sex and cursing and esp. nudity all over again in these sorts of cartoons. And that it will ultimately prove just as barren for everyone.

Same problem then exists for you now: your audience ghetto'izes you into, "That dude that does the naked chicks."

(Well, I don't know, maybe that's not so bad.)

When you give us the teases, the crawling Sody with her butt-crack obscured by Cigs, this seems like the apex moment for the sort of sexual content you're suggesting. Giving it all away (and doing it repeatedly, for an extended time) is too distracting. Great in a static drawings, but limiting for an animated cartoon.

But hey, God bless you for trying!!

Matt Schuster said...

I would love to see this show. So many "adult" cartoons rely on pop-culture dialogue and cute, little kids dropping the F-bomb. Give me something well drawn and outrageously weird.

Gabriel said...

I loved everything, can't say much more than everyone else already did, except that you MUST get that Jay Li guy to paint some static shots of Sody when this cartoon get made!

Kevin Langley said...

I agree with Matt Schuster, all the jokes on Adult Swim are pop culture references. How many joke can you make about a Foreigner record? I would love to see more Cigarettes the cat, especially if Eddie's doing the voice.

Pussycats is zeh CRAZIEST PEEPLLE!

Alleycat said...

WOW, aren't we all conservative here?

Since when is being nude evil?

I am amaze that people actual think that showing a nude cartoon girl is far worse than showing a cartoon getting killed.

talk about being sexually suppressed!

Anyway, this cartoon sounds funny and it's well drawn, so sign me up!

IceWolf said...

I particulary like it, and it's something that sounds like it will be interesting, to say the least.

And reposnse to alleycat: although naked people isn't as shockish as killing people, it does give more depth to the story, as we are all desensitised to murder and death and all that from the last few years of popular television/movies/games. It has lost it's appeal.

What we need is more humour, or at least writing that will give credit that we have a brain and can think for ourselves. In my opinion it owuld be nice if all American cartoons would ditch the episodic sit-com format and start doing story arcs.

Anonymous said...

Weekend Pussy Hunt was genius. It began innocently enough then turned into a noir thriller.
Things like Naked Beach Frenzy offer T&A to be sure, but also add comedy. Cartoon animals with naked chicks if done properly is hilarious, so yeah, bring it on, John.
This is not porn; you're not doing something like Fritz the Cat here. It is, at most, burlesque in animated form.

I love these characters!

man i love that story sound awesome hehhe hope u can make it i would defenetly buy that on dvd yeahhhhhhhhh

Josh "Just What the Doctor Ordered" Heisie said...

Mr K:
I'm a sixteen year old male, and I think this is a great idea, so long as it stays fun, and doesn't get perverted and pornographic.

I don't believe you would do that though. So long as it stays fun, and doesn't get too filthy, then it sounds like an incredibly fun cartoon.

This gets my official teenager stamp of approval

...although I'm probably not supposed to be watching this type of lusty stuff!

uuyeah said...

heheh WOW IS SOUNDS CRAZY FUNA AND SEXY JUST EVERYBODY LIKE I SAY GO FOR J boy

randi said...

I think it's a great story, and especially liked the hamper gag (which will be even funnier when it's animated and we see a closed lid at first).

I can also see it made longer at some point, with lots of gags that get ever more ridiculous as she mosies around the bedroom.

I admit I'm a little squeamish about so much nudity, and keep picturing you facing down a cast-iron executive lady type person who hasn't cracked a smile since the last one made her face explode.

But I agree with several others here: you have to do what you want, the way you want, and then
go about selling it. I know it's much more complicated than that, but I also know that anytime I've allowed a lousy client to dictate everything, it's been a serious chore and I tell myself, "I'm never doing that again!"

And then the rent comes due.

I attended an animation class run by Leonard Maltin long before he became a bigshot--hell of a nice guy, btw--and one night the entire lecture consisted of showing us the "censored" cartoons that I clearly remember watching when I was a kid.

Most of the cartoons were extremely suggestive--I remember one in particular where a ram sees a sexy sheep or real girl or whatever, and his horns roll forward until they're fully extended. When I was a kid it just meant he was happy to see this sexy sheep/girl. Watching it as an adult, I thought "Whoa! I can't believe they showed that to kids!"

These last few posts of yours have been so enlightening. I've printed them out, too, so I can reread them at my leisure. And speaking of leisure, do you ever sleep?? Your output is mindboggling. (Thanks for making us all feel like lazy sacks of shit.)

Whatever became of Donald Bastard?

Philthy said...

Yowzers.. female behind.. thanks for the new desktop image John.

I for one will never tire of toilet humor. It's an everyday human reality! Sure, sure get some socio-political commentary in there and some sophisticated comedy but it creates a great rhythm when you can offset that stuff with booger and poop jokes. So keep it up.

Recently got a peek at your 'ren seeks help' APC episode. Entertaining and also definitely different from old R&S. Overall things seem more indulgent and excessive, even as far as pacing goes. Look forward to seeing more.

Aimee's Sketch Blog said...

I wasn't sure how to take this, I was a little embarrased at first. But then I realized that women can put themselves in Sody's place because even though Sody doesn't realize the cats are gawking at her, the fantasy of being gawked at is one a lot of girls have. So in that way it's sexy for us, too.
(even if it is *gasp* cats)..

Pat Lewis said...

Man oh man, John! I wish you had enough time and money to make EVERY cartoon idea you came up with a reality. Like this one, for example--it looks absolutely beautiful. Would it be my favorite cartoon ever? Probably not (I tend to like stuff with a little more "heart"). But still: awesome!

I think the reason people judge your stuff kind of harshly is because they know that, if you wind up making it, that'll be the only cartoon they get from you for a while. So they want everything to be perfect (for them).

In an ideal world, we'd have new Ren & Stimpy on one channel, George Liquor on another, the Heartaches on Saturday mornings, and "2 Dirty Pussies" available somewhere else. Here's hoping that vision becomes a reality!

Anonymous said...

Well, I love cartoons with animals and sexy chicks. Still I haven't watched Naked Beach Frenzy, but it's a little harder for me to imagine Ren and Stimpy in that situation, especially that shampoo joke that seems a little too much for me.

Anyway this looks pretty good. About the general drawings of Spumco chicks, apart from the catholic girls and eventually Sody, I don't find some of them too sexy.

Sody is sexy and beautiful in some drawings and in other isn't. I don't like when you (and by yo I mean Spumco) make the girls extremely skinny. I't less sexy and kinda reminds me of aneroxia. Even if it's a more old-fashioned style of chick I still find Red Hor Ridding Hood sexier than a bunch of those chicks. I imagine you try a different style though cause there are lots of Red imitations there, like Poison Ivy in Batman Animated Series or Jessica Rabbitt.

What about that girl with the long dark hair, skinny neck, jacket and big boobs in the left of the big pannel? Which cartoon is she supossed to feature in? It seems pretty different to the other designs.

I forgot to question. Isn't Cigarrettes suposed to be Jimmy The Idiot Boy's cat, not Sody's? I guess it's not so important but I'm kind of a continuity freak, you know. I don't care in Ren and Stimpy cause the whole show is based on "not continuity", but what I've seen so far with Kimmy and George seems like a more defined, unchanging universe.

He's Jimmy's cat officially but George keeps kicking him out of the house, because to George, cats are bugs.

Then Sody takes care of his furry needs.

Priceless stuff, man.
I'd pay to see this. The cat in the hamper catching the undies was great, I was rolling! I'd have him wink at the audience when he does this bit.

When the bra comes off, the cats' eyes should bounce up and down in synch with the girl's boobs. That'd be a great bit.

Doesn't it suck when the censors--ahem, "standards and practices"--force you to tone stuff down just because, God forbid, a kid sees smoething he's probably seen several times already?

As much as I would LOVE to see the American animation industry finally start growing up and realizing that it doesn't have to be either kids stuff, or smut, I would still like to have the option to watch smut. And this is the kind of smut i would LOVE to watch!

But seriously...You can write a story geared towards adults without throwing in T&A. Last I checked, I was interested in a lot more stuff than JUST looking at naked girls and swearing.

I don't know - if you go over to SpikeTV's website they utilize the following navigational links:

:)
They even named their wrestling lineup T'N'A!

Not that I'm suggesting John (or anyone else) needs to pander to the lowest common denominator. I'm just poking fun.

I wonder - if John DID produce a series exactly like the original R&S - would anyone really tune in? Or would the attention-impaired masses quickly move on to the next big thing and say "we thought it would be different"?

Bring on the adult cartoons! But put 'em on DVD (as well as iPod).
What's the use of animating naughty bits if they're only 5 pixels wide? :)

Looks pretty fun. I didn't read all the comments, so don't know if this was mentioned but...laws about pornography are getting more and more strict, especially 2257 laws as the Bush administration's cover for trying to outlaw internet porn all together. You have to be careful referring to Sody Pop as a "teenaged" girl, because in the United States now even drawings of girls who are meant to be perceived as underage is considered child pornography.

As for Sody being a teenaged girl and the associated child pornography charges that might be leveled, the Cherry Poptart route could be gone, where Sody has eternally just turned 18.

Since it's a cartoon, continuity, aging of characters, etc. doesn't have to be maintained.

ryan said...

>>And honestly while I made the original Ren and Stimpy for kids, adults watched it too and South Park is supposedly made for adults yet kids watch it too.

Actually the reason anybody watched either of those shows is because they were *FUNNY*. South Park, funny for the jokes/writing & the original Ren & Stimpy for the jokes, drawings, & much much more. The key word here is 'funny.' if something is funny, people will like it. But, as of right now, you are too close-minded to watch almost anything that was made after a certain time period.. If you did, you might actually UNDERSTAND and see WHY & WHAT makes certain popular shows funny. Maybe you could even implement some of the funny things that work into your own shows & ideas..

or you can remain in a super small box and never grow as an artist

junior said...

Ryan, that's pretty stupid. I suppose if i say I don't find South Park funny you'll tell me I'm just wrong? Since when a lot of people liking something is suppose to be an indicator of its quality? I guess you must think Britney Spears is really talented....

He's a man of good taste. I HATE CATS. Unless they're cartoons. Maybe you can have a realistic cat be Bug's pet and they always beat him up or something.

>>>As for Sody being a teenaged girl and the associated child pornography charges that might be leveled, the Cherry Poptart route could be gone, where Sody has eternally just turned 18. <<<
Or we could say its OK since John is Canadian and in Canada the age of consent is 14. :D

But I agree with anonymous, don't make them too skinny. I like the Bad Catholic Girls the best.

The idea of a George Liquor Program DVD would be better than trying to get this on the air. The animators will have more creativity with a direct to DVD product than having to wade through the broadcast censors.
If a DVD is not to be, then a Flash cartoon would be another route.
When is this cartoon coming out, John?

That's a GREAT cartoon! On the recent Warner Brothers Golden Collection dvd John does the commentary for Gruesome Twosome... check it out, because in there he says exactly that, the yellow cat was a prime influence for Stimpy.

good eye!

now i wonder how much the Ventriloquist Cat from Tex Avery influenced the character of Cigarettes? i guess there are only so many ways to draw a mangy alley cat.

Young Sparky said...

It would be great to see a cartoon for adults not trying to be edgy."

It's called "The Flintstones".

Hello John

Enjoying your blog muchly.

How come you're a Flintstones admirer? I would have thought the non-specific acting and the lack of Clampett-style fluidity and exaggeration would get in the way for you.

Did you see the episode where Wilma said "b*ll*cks"? Any ideas how this quaint Anglo Saxon term slipped into the dialogue script?

If you really do like Flintstones, do you rate Top Cat as well? I do.

Cheerz!

Here's my thoughts on age appropriate content. I have a few properties that are either enjoying activity or once were.

One of my properties has a 6-8 year old demographic. When I create a property like this I create my own rules based on age appropriate. To me you have a responsibilty when your fanbase is that young. So, I have a whole list of no-no's. It's for little kids. How hard is that. It's so easy to be gut busting funning to an audience that y oung without crossing any lines.

On the other hand, I had a property going and the demographic there was somewhere around teens to young adults. (this company wasn't heavy with the market research so I don't have an exact age.) But as a creator I knew it was more for adults and therefore liked to "push the envelope".

Another thing I do when creating properties is give each of them a very different look. I don't want to have a "style" being associated with me. I think Spumco has a definitive look and the business tends to stereotype. If they think you're stuff is raunchy, they'll think all your stuff is the same. I've actually heard comments regarding someone's pilot - that it looked too Spumco and that's over. (They were wrong because, in my opinion, it worked much better with a Spumco look and they made the creator change it and then they passed on it) Anyway, I think creating my own properties so different from each other will avoid me getting "typecast" and it just keeps things fun and interesting for me. In short, I consider the age of my audience and make my own rules.

With shows that appeal to both kids and adults, I think there have been so few. However in these instances, what appealed to adults was never "got" by the kids watching. It was all too subtle. That's also a good way of getting stuff by S&P. Sometimes I'd say they're not too bright and would miss subtle inuiendo (sp) but shove a naked lady in front of them and then they're like :That's wrong, that's wrong, that's wrong.

I think shows that were genius in appealing to both kids and adults was the 60's Batman show, Pee Wee's Playhouse and there was a great show out of Canada a few years back called Big Wolf on Campus. That show had an active campaign to see what they could get by S&P. However, in all these shows kids would have never gotten the adult aspect of it, well, not until they were adults.

If you make your own rules first, they'll have a lot less to come at you for. I also found it useful to pic your battles. Give in to them when it's not important and fight for the really good one. I'm sure John knows better than most that this industry is largely built on reputation and people want to work with people who won't cause problems.

IMO, play nice and be "sneaky" while at the same time having respect for your demographic.

Eric C. said...

John,

Just of curiosity.

What inspired you to put the word 'dirty' into cartoons.

I can see edginess on the Bob Clampett shorts.
Including the unseen gag on Baby Bottleneck with the Pig towards the baby alligator, "Egh, egh, egh! Don't touch that dial."
But what made you decide to do full exposure on women and how far would you go in cartoons when it comes to content.
Some guys like Trey Parker and Matt Stone would go past the X rating. I've never seen you ever do that or expect you too. Unless you count "What do pee boners do?" In which I haven't seen before.

Well, if he were a "faggot", he'd probably enjoy that. At least, that's what I was told by my deeply repressed mother, who insisted that the family beagle was a "pervert" who was masturbating his life away and was surely a "fruit" (her word). It was no use telling her that he was cleaning himself, not giving himself a blowjob.

Or maybe he was. Good dog!

That is NOT true, a new ruling was passed by the Supreme court that ALL artwork was 100% legal. If this wasn't true then most museums would have to be closed down. due to all those cute little naked angels, etc.

It's art! It's all good!

Photos and videos, however, that not cool and never ever OK.

This is why Kill Bill had to switch to Anime for that part, since it would had been illegal to actual film it, but 100% to animate it.

I think it's a great idea. Do you think you could pull it off WITHOUT showing ANY nudity... like the strippers of the 40's doing the feather dance, the shadow dance, etc.... it be more suggestive and seductive.
It'd be like a burlesque show, comic relief, sexiness... and a well placed kittykat silhouette to block the naughty parts (Whistles, jeers,"Down in front!")!!
Sell it to the suits as Benny Hill meets Tex Avery!

Actually the first couple seasons had very specific acting and fluid limited animation and you could tell every animator by his own unique style of acting.

Maybe you are thinking of one of the many later incarnations of the Flintstones.

Check out the 1960 season! It's funny too.

james you've got issues. The cartoon is merely about a nubile young girl undressing and the cats that want her, but can never have her. It's kind of romantic, really.

Ryan (his comments are a fair way back up the beanstalk), Brittney Spears is talented. She's a good dancer, and her lipsyncing capacities are nigh unmatched.

Mr. John K, you've mentioned that these are intended to be short, how short, only a few minutes, over five, less than ten?

Should cartoons give you a boner? I dunno...but I like it! I love the concept and the characters. I fell in love with Sody Pop instantly :-B I would definitely grab these off an iPod or equivalent service. To contemplate putting them on TV and having the whole thing manipulated by a bunch of corporate scaredey-cats is just impractical. You'd know this better than all of us John. Independent is the way. I guess the main problem is getting them made so that you can put them out there. With the iTunes model, you're costs are all in the production and you have the one factor that can let your ideas fly. FREEDOM! WIth the revenue from the short and sexy stuff (bound to be a winner) you can branch out. Maybe do the sexy toons under a different banner to Spumco? Whatever you decide on, dont let no namby-pamby, play-it-safe, TV execu-goons near it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I imagine the drawings would by typically beautiful and hilarious, but it seems to me that the cartoon overrun with cliches--names in particular, and also I think somewhat tasteless and offensive. Suggesting the possibility that the girl (I suggest very much changing her name to something that makes sense) MAY get naked is infinitely more enjoyable than if she actually did--it's Hitchcock's old technique of action versus suspense, that is, the suspense is the entertainment....invariably the action doesn't live up to what is promised. Why not break entirely new ground with animation, which to me is one of, if not THE most undiscovered art forms around, an animated short can be about anything -- why stick to old Warner cats looking at girls when you could do something really great -- imagine a Hemingway story animated by Spumco, maybe that's a bad example because it's not comedy, but what I mean is that you shouldn't limit yourself -- I realize it's idealistic, but beautiful drawings don't add up to much unless there's a solid story for them.

That's one of teh most funniest stories that I have read here so far. It sounds and looks like a great cartoon. Please make it, I know it would cost a lot of money to make and you want to make sure you can make it back with profit. But, I think this would be a big seller.

John, have you ever taken the time to study the claymation of wonderfully animation shows like MTV's Celebrity Deathmatch and their Marilyn Manson music video or your more of a 2D kind of animation critic, right ?

I think MTV was inspired by Ren & Stimpy to create their own animation unit. MTV like R&S and played them, right? Why didn't MTV take Ren & Stimpy in the past?
I noticed that they own them now in their unit and not in Nick's unit in Viacom. Are you planning on buying the rights to Ren & Stimpy back ?

Ted said...

What's the point in saying they're not x-rated? At this time, there's virtually no legal difference between nudity and sex in an AV work (in the US), so once you've crossed the naked line, you're not going to be cut out of many more markets than if you cross the penetration line. Transgression has less grey in it than it used to.

Obviously, if you want to be making some animated versions of 8mm nudism films, that's your choice, but at this stage of the game, in for a penny, in for a pound (so to speak). Do you just want to define a boundary to skate around? This is not a bad idea at all (I think alot of the best of the original RnS had to do with skating around limits), but why not draw the line before nudity in the cartoons themselves and add a great deal of potential market for the cartoons (and a lot of complexity to the tittilation), and a greater hunger for the "Topless and Tanlined" Sody Pop resin statue (which will likely sell better than "Circle Jerk" Sody)? (Note: I want a piece of the royalties on "Topless and Tanlined" and/or "Circle Jerk", but you can leave my named credit off the second idea...)

John, first of all; I'll breifly say; you inspired me to be what I am today.
I watched Ren & Stimpy when I was 9 years-old, and it set off something in my brain. I'm now 21 and a full-time cartoonist - LOVING your new blog.

With that out the way; I love this idea for a toon. I think iTunes would pick it up - Jesus, have you seen some of the stanky shit they put up there? You'd be a shoe-in.

When you mapped this out above, I could see the entire animated short in my head - music and all. It's a great idea, and you should be developing this. You and Katie are on to a winner.

I strongly disagree with those who say that it's too offensive. I have one thing to say to you people; Go watch Hello Kitty, because you're obviously not the kind of people who can handle this sort of brilliant work.

I didn't see any money shots either John - though I almost cried laughing when I read: "Ejaculates Bugs."

Pure gold, my friend.

I would say that you'd have a good chance of running something like this in America with a beastiality threesome between Sody and the two cats, but with a character pulling a gun? THAT would get the censors up in arms.. (pardon the pun)

Keep up the great work - your teachings are invaluable.

Hi John, I had a couple of questions about the Stimpy's pregnant episode.The scene where Nurse Sheep and Mr Horse are talking.

NS: "Doctor whats your prognosis?"

MH"You want that prognosis ay?"

Nurse Sheep nods,

MH: "Well where do you want it front or back?"

NS:"DOCTOR! Not THAT type of prognosis!".


I understand that it's a sexual reference by Nurse Sheeps reaction but I dont understand of what it's in reference to exactly.Also why does Mr Horse keep hitting Nurse Sheep for no reason? It was a really hilarious cartoon by the way.

I dearly hope you make it back onto the scene. I miss good cartoons. There are so very few of them these days.

JohnK said...

>>2. Porky's Five and Ten is actually a Bob Clampett cartoon.

what's the one where the fat young Porky goes to the candy store? That's what I'm thinking of.

JohnK said...

>>I'm working on a 5 minute weekly Flash show that minute for minute has as big a budget as any cartoon on TV.

I'd be too happy to do that. What company and who should I talk to?

Nico said...

john, would more Cigarrettes the Cat mean more hilarious voice work from Eddie F?

i love these ideas, keep them coming!

- that is THE BLOW OUT.

Which are your favorite Lantz cartoons? And the Fleischer ones?

Hey John, ever listen to Toy Story 2's "When She Loved Me" sung by Sarah Mclaughlin, while sketching Ren and Stimpy? That's a weird experience.

Get these snakes off my plane

Chloe Cumming said...

Hmmm… I’m conflicted on this one.

I don’t think anything I’ll say today will be rational or coherent. It’s based on my actual visceral response to the drawings and the ideas in the original post.

I’m a woman and I have never felt like Sody Pop was really designed with me in mind, even though logically there’s no reason why I shouldn’t enjoy her.

The designs of the cats are wonderful. I love the fast drawings on lined paper.

I have a funny feeling, again not rational, based on those drawings, that if this was done in full animation in a seven minute lavishly budgeted format, fully bouncy and beautiful and shown on a cinema screen, I would adore it and find it life-affirming… but if it was a flash cartoon or a podcast type thing I’d feel kind of like I do now about it, unsure and like maybe it wasn’t made for me.

Like someone might have said, I’m inclined to think that if John commits to one project I’d want it to be exactly the right one, and probably one that aims to be all-inclusive and not men’s-channel oriented. I think it would be satisfying to see something that has the space to be touching or weird or atmospheric moment to moment like the best R&S episodes have been, rather than needing to sell itself as pervy and being narrowly labelled (John/Spumco doesn’t need that). I think that’s maybe why I’d find it more palatable as a fully animated thing, as if it needs the full dazzling richness of cartoon tradition to counterbalance the dirtiness. I’m probably not being practical, but since we’re using our imaginations…

With the designs of the Spumco women, I have really particular responses to them visually that probably can’t be justified verbally. I prefer Sody to some of the more generic ones because there’s something particular about her anatomy, like she could be a real person, she isn’t merely a composite of cartoon chick conventions. I’m a bit squeamish about the really skinny, and really child-like ones. I want to see arse-flesh! And I’m slightly creeped out by the men who come on here and say they prefer cartoon women to real ones. Don’t make them your target audience please. But I don’t feel I can say anything definitive because you’re presenting still drawings and in a finished cartoon there are an infinite number of subtle things you might do to make the female characters sympathetic. Or to make the context so funny that I stop caring whether they are.

Oh, and the painting in that Jay Li legs picture is beautiful… what kind of paints are used for those ‘rendered’ closeups? It’s a bit reminiscent of early renaissance tempera techniques or something.

So I’m all over the place really… one of the reasons I like Katie Rice’s drawings is that she always seems to get compassion for her subjects into them, without harming their sex appeal at all. It’s not really fair but if you’re a man the cute girls are more likely to come across exploitative (esp. when being ogled by homophobic man cats) and alienate some women before they even get a chance to enjoy the meat of the cartoon… although I recognise that it’s all a reflection of culture and a continuation of a noble cartoon tradition, and that truth usually has contradictions in it. I don’t think cartoons or anything creative should be limited by political correctness, but it would seem a shame if you did anything to make it easier for the unenlightened to dismiss you.

I was going to hold off on responding to this one, but as I’ve been given an extra day I thought I’d have a go. It’s a minefield!

mr. john k.,
love the blog site. i've been reading it daily, and have long been a fan of your animation. as an artist, i admire your style. you've got moxie, sir.
had to voice my opinion on this one.... DEAR LORD, PLEASE ANIMATE THIS STORY! there's nothing funnier than skeezy animals leering at cute girls. it reminds me of the old tex avery/red cartoons, and especially the classic max fleischer betty/bimbo cartoons. those things really crossed the line. hell, they're still sexy today.
i say bravo, sir. please proceed with this series. my wife agrees, so you've got yet another female vote. (and DO hurry with the next Ren&Stimpy DVD collection... i am chomping at the bit to see those!)

The Blow Out (1936)

Directed by Tex Avery



A crazed bomber is terrorizing the city. Meanwhile, a young Porky is a few cents shy of buying an ice cream soda; he starts earning it by picking up items people drop and handing them to him. But the bomber is not pleased to be on the receiving end of Porky's good deed...

It's amazing that you are loaded with tons of great ideas, and they all seem to be in the same Spumco universe.

2 Dirty Pussies are great. It's been a long time wince we had two cartoon animals that were meant for the older crowd rather than just cartoon humans.

The drawing look fantastic and the story is very funny.

I sure hope it gets made.

baron von josho said...

What ever happened of the George Liquor Movie and the CGI Weekend Pussy Hunt movie you mentioned once? Couldn't get interested important people?

Do you mean "Porky's Romance"? He goes into a candy store at the beginning of that one to buy chocolates for his fat pig girlfriend, then Porky hangs himself.

allyn said...

i couldn't conatain the laughter! this is such a great idea, i love the look of the characters, their behaviour, and with some great spumco acting it could go along way!

Porky's Romance (1937)

Directed by Frank Tashlin

Petunia Pig introduces herself nervously before the credits. Porky woos her, but she's only interested in his candy, not his hand in marriage. Dejected, Porky tries to hang himself. He fails, but he has a dream sequence (or a nightmare) of what marriage to a candy-eating Petunia would be like, with her lying on the couch while he cares for a dozen piglets. He comes to, and rejects Petunia, even kicking her dog.

Scott Thill said...

John K:

Cigarettes and Pussy? That's about the best cartoon duo name I've ever heard. Plus, the world could use more Avery-inspired, bald-faced hornitude, rather than the mechanized penis lovers of anime. Not that I don't watch those, but the more the better. Nevermind. Keep up the good fucking work!

Jeff said...

"faggots" seems a little harsh. But otherwise, quality stuff as usual.

sTAtiC said...

John, I've given more thought to your dilema. You're creating content for a market that doesn't exist or rather have an outlet. As I mentioned in another subject, society still thinks of cartoons as kiddy fair.

I'm in a similar situation with having product for a market that doesn't have an outlet. I've just come out with a trade paperback (comic collection) that is for kids. There really isn't an established market for kids comics. You know, young kids. Retailers won't put it with their graphic novels because the content is too young and they won't put it with their children's books because they're comics. This has been an ongoing problem in the comic/publishing industry.

In short, my product isn't reaching it's fanbase. It's frustrating because (as you can see from your own blog) people love the content when you show it to them but you just can't get it in their hands.

Something to think about.

no it's not, these cats are not suppose to be role models, they are sex crazed jerks, that's why they are so funny.

JSL said...

Bar none, the best gag in this bit is the cat's threat to the vermin: THEY'RE GONNA FIND YOU OUT!

It's almost like he's speaking to the audience.

make it on your own stop fucking around. this is hot go for it. this is not for eveyone let them make their own shows.


people who watch cartoon characters stab beat other but feel"funny" ha ha about sexual stuff make me feel "funny"

get to work.

Eebs said...

Hi, JohnK! Here for the usual comment...

First off, I am a heterosexual female but I say bring on the sexy ladies. Most of my girlfriends my age feel the same way. I have no way of knowing if I find them as "amusing" as guys do, but it definitely doesn't deter me.

I love the idea but it kind of reads as a one-trick pony to me. Of course, I have complete faith in you guys to stretch it, but I can't see the plot of "kitties trying to get a free show" moving forward very far.

*shrug* Maybe it doesn't need to... just trying to throw my hat in the ring.

Anonymous said...

>>I don't think there's anything at all edgy about liking girls.


Nor do I. But I do consider nudity to be edgy. For TV anyways.

Since this is for DVD or podcasts, by all means, do what you want.

Just get it done.

I don't think it does.
When I watched the Three Stooges I didn't say to myself, "Waitaminnute. . .Civil War spies?? But they were detectives last week! What's going on?!?" :)

A lot of people again seem to be confusing the characters with John... what do you think George Liquor would say if you told him that saying "faggots" was too harsh. You'd probably get a lot more back and it would be countless times worse.

As usual I'd love to see more and more girls from you guys. I'm a healthy young man that appreciates curves and ins and outs and whatnots and John and Katie seem to have a knack for drawing women that actually look attractive rather than the garbage stick figure nonsense that most people pass off.

So from one pervert to another - keep em coming. This blog keeps getting better and we appreciate it.

Anonymous said...

Hey John,

Sounds like a good idea.
In terms of going too far or not far enough I think it depends, as an adult cartoon I think it would go over well.
I'm a big fan of the old form you
keep alive and I know any of your ideas have vast potential.

Vanoni! said...

. . .Maybe it doesn't need to...

I don't think it does.

I meant to say "I don't think it does"

As long as I'm posting again - I'm confused by so many posts "warning" John that his stuff may be too raunchy for TV. (Whether he's said it's geared to TV or not)
Have these people turned on a TV lately? South Park - Drawn Together - and a hundred other shows animated or live action - 20 times raunchier than anything I've seen on this blog. (And not funny.)

I'm not condoning raunch for the sake of raunch. But the fact is, I hardly think Spumco will upset the gentle balance of TV ethics with this stuff.

Vanoni! said...

Also, nevermind my correction. I misread my own comment - then mis-typed my own correction.

I'm going to go have another 8 cups of coffee and ruin some other people's blogs for a while.

The point is that this cartoon is funny, and many of those others that go way farther that are on TV are not.

Eebs said...

Vanoni!--

You have a point. (One of them, I mean.)

It was just the wording of it that worried me-- the post says the plot is: 2 horny cats always trying get free shows from human girls.

Always. Always trying to get free shows. I can't imagine that being funny time after time, but as long as John can, it's fine by me. I'm just weighing in.

I guess I just worry about the fact that you don't want to be able to sum up a single facial expression in one description, but you can do that with the plot?

I know I'm oversimplifying but that was my key concern.

mark said...

Dirty kitties trying to get a free peek show from beautiful human girls is SUCH an awesome idea.

I had an idea that you might like if you like all kinds of music... i love Mississippi Delta Blues like the stuff they recorded from the trunk of Alan Lomax's car in the '40s with an old guy banging his foot on the porch instead of a drum.

So my idea is to animate a short music video [in flash] of the song Boom Boom with a little stubby Hobo John Lee Hooker character walking around trying to play his guitar for free whiskey. he'll have a lanky vertical dog sidekick "Gin Dawg" who is forever and a day trying to get hold of some corn pone and John Lee just kicks him and says:
"We ain't play for no-supper no-how, we playin' for whiskey now Gin Dawg!"
haha.
i can see the whole thing in my head.
I hope i can figure out how to make it, i think my nephew would love it.


oh yeah, john your blog is a masterpiece, there's so much good stuff here! i'm glad i started reading early. i feel sorry for all the poor future bastards who arrive at this party in mid 2007 and have try to catch up.

Gabriel said...

Eebs, getting free shows are their goal, but maybe the show should be about their adventures to achieve that goal. Who knows what kind of crazy stuff they'll be pushed into because of that obsession? I think the possibilities are big, they don't have to stay in the bedroom every single episode. Hell, they could even travel through time and space, maybe chase prehistoric women...

That could ONLY be on the web or DVD. AWESOME!

Chico Maivia said...

Hey John, this is a little off topic, but have you ever blogged about your band? I've been in a band for three years, and have played the sax for about ten, so I'm really curious to know more about your group. Just a thought!

Again, great job on the cartoons.
