Those are overflowing with fun indeed! It looks like you got in that state where your hands almost lag behind your mind. I wish I knew how to induce it more easily. This cartoon thingie is so zen and mysterious!

Brilliant! I already said it, but these are some of the funniest and most instantly appealing drawings I've seen from you. It's obvious that you had great fun drawing them.

Holy hell, that lamma or sheep or whatever has some scary nipples! I like the bunny girl too. This is gonna kick ass.

Have you seen the animated intro to Run Ronnie Run? Everyone who I watch it with is sure it was done by Spumco, but I remain skeptical. I haven't heard anything about who animated it.

It pretty funny. It's about a box of candy at the movie theatre.

I love the boobs popping out on that last picture. I reminds me of a scene in B.C. Rock when Stewie Babcock's mother saw him for the first time. Hilarious.

Oh, and thank you Kali for your services to John K. and thus your services to society in general. You will be greatly rewarded for your good deeds one day.

BRILLIANT STUFF!!!

ThEy're BURSTINg with cartooniness! It's really the only way to put it but these animals really live in that cartoon world that goes by contradicting rules that made so much sense to me when i was a kid.
LIke, anvils are an abundance in cartoon world, gravity only exists when the character decides it does, AmericanIndians use their feather hats to fly, cats really do eat mice and dogs really do eat cats, AmericanIndians were obsessed with Cigars, mice really live in walls with cutouts that shape or do cats really always drink milk?.....I'm going off topic! Or i thought only cartoons catch butterflies with nets, I never realized ppl really try to do that. AHAHAHAH I'm sucha Ditz! sorry!

Hi John

Those are really cool designs!

I have to say that you are right, cartoon animals are really fun to draw. When I was a kid and when I started creating my own cartoon characters I would always draw cartoon animals. In the begining I always had a hard time designing human characters. But in 2004 I finally created a human cartoon duo. I created these two young New Jersey boys named Johnny & Adam, You might remmember that I mailed you a drawing of those guys a month or two ago. If you do remmember seeing that could you tell me your thoughts about it please? Thanks.

your pal,

Jesse

I love when the old firecheif morphs into the new and improved version at the begining of Fire Dogs. Without Johns explanation before the episode on the DVD that would have been over my head.

The firecheif is a damn good character. He's so unstable it honestly made me nervouse the first time i watched it, like I didnt know what the hell he was about to do and at any moment he could just flip out. The "do you love me tommy?" segment is awesome. goddamn we need to see more of this stuff
