    The Villains

    Bad guys are integral to driving the plots of many stories, and animation is no different.

    The Animated Future

    The Animated Future

    From the Jetsons to Futurama, cartoons have long been envisioning what the world will be like in the space age. In many ways we've surpassed what animation told us to expect from technology. But animation's very existence is closely tied to technology in ways that enable that fantastic storytelling.

Love it!

I love cartoons and the bonus episode was posted on my birthday. I’d love to work for Disney or Cartoon Network or Nickelodeon. Butch Hartman is one of my favorite animators.
