An exploration of cartoons with an insider's perspective, including show creators, voice actors, historians, animators and business leaders.
Throughout the production of Drawn, there have been so many great moments in interviews that didn't quite fit into any of our episodes, but we wanted to make sure that listeners got to hear them. So today, it's all random moments from chats with the voice actors, animators, and production staff who make some of our favorite shows and movies.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Bad guys are integral to driving the plots of many stories, and animation is no different. But villains are as varied as heroes -- from Jafar in "Aladdin" to the Monarch in "The Venture Brothers," and everything in between. What makes the perfect villain in animation, and why do we love them so much?See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Women in Animation
While most of the high-profile positions in animation have been occupied by men for decades, women have been part of animation from the beginning. How has the industry changed for women over the years, and what does the future hold?See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
The Sound Effects
Boing! Zip! Crash! The sound of animation is a character all its own. Who designs the non-music soundscape of a cartoon, and how does that work impact the final product?See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Music of 'Toons
Viewers may not always realize how deeply the music in a cartoon affects them. But without the score, we'd be emotionally lost. How do composers deftly handle that crucial emotional manipulation?See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
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.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
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.
I love cartoons!
Such a cool, informative look at the animation industry. I love the interviews from different perspectives of the process. I wish they would release a second season!!
