Are these online anywhere? YouTube doesn't have them.

JohnK said...

Hopefully not. I need to figure out how to get someone to pay to finish 'em.

SpenkCartoons said...

How much you need John?

Chris said...

Bwahahahaaaa!!! I have them all backed up! No, I will not share. Sorry.

Hi John. I'm continuing to experiment with your characters (remember Frankenstimpy?). It would be great if you could pass through my blog and leave a comment; I have some doubts about inking.
About the portraits from the last post, they are among my favourite works by you: they are solidly faithful, in a way that reminds me of Mort Drucker, but pleasantly concise and cartoony. And Ren & Stimpy look great in them!
When I'll finish to scrape a living on the insalubrious margins of Capitalism, and I'll have 120 bucks (or even 160!) in my pocket, I'll send you the hideous mug of mine — one without Groucho mustaches — to get a properly remunerated portrait.

Happy New Year and stuff,

Felix

Hey, man, great post!

I don't know this character...

I've never SEEEEEEN him before!

Just kidding, I love these shorts. Mike's acting is hilarious.

RooniMan said...

I've heard of this before.

Mitch K said...

Weekend Pussy Hunt is my favorite.

CJ said...

I like the colors used on this fellow, I've actually seen some nasty animals that look like this either from being old, diseased, or blind. So it's a nice bit or realism. ;)

I have a question, more of a favor to ask from you really. One of my new year's resolutions was to do more backgrounds and I've recently started on some through sketch commissions. I was hoping, if you get the chance, could you take a peak at some of them? And leave some feedback? Just any little crits and tips would suffice!

Kuzey said...

I always thought you should have your own section on Apple's iTunes store...with all your shows there in the one place....maybe, even an iPhone app or two :)

Btw...I loved your sketchy designs so much, I did a 3d version of Curly Fuzz Poodle

I hope you get a kick out of it :)

Hi John,

I discovered your blog a few weeks ago and just wanna say thanks for putting your stuff out there, it's an awesome resource.

i have been following your preston blair lessons over the last few weeks and already finding much improvement although still battling with basic construction. Would greatly appreciate any feedback you could offer.

John, how far into production was episode 13 of WPH? Was it all layed out?

talkingtj said...

two more days before mighty mouse is out on dvd, yessss! been waiting for that one!

"Hopefully not. I need to figure out how to get someone to pay to finish 'em."

Maybe a paysite? People will think it's pornography and you'll get a million hits.

The Butcher said...

"Mike's acting is hilarious."

Agreed. And I was surprised when I first figured out Eddie was Cigarettes the Cat. Have they done voices on any of your other cartoons? They're both great!

RAAA said...

John, when WPH was online I had a 56k modem and it took all day to watch all the episodes but man it was worth it. At the time I never knew Flash could look so good. I still use the mouse pad I bought off Cafepress. http://www.cafepress.com/spumco
I really want to see these finished... I'll help!

Jorge Garrido said...

"Agreed. And I was surprised when I first figured out Eddie was Cigarettes the Cat. Have they done voices on any of your other cartoons? They're both great!"

As President and First Officer of The Official Mike & Eddie Fanclub, I know Mike was the eye-talian bully in "Boo-boo & The Man" and Eddie was the laugh track in "Stimpy's Pregnant."

If you need traditional animators that work in Flash to complete WPH, I'd love to work and learn from you.

The Artist Aficionado said...

John how long are some of these things in production?

I remember you saying some Ren and Stimpy's you wrote back in the early nineties but didn't get completed until the Adult Party show a decade later.

Besides budget and time what else consumes a project?

I've noticed that almost all ideas animators conceive have never get completed and only a few get finished at the end of the day.

The Artist Aficionado said...

I know they call it Production Hell. Though in animation its more common place some Disney films have token decades sometimes shelved. Winsor Mccay took four years to complete Little Nemo when it was finally released in 1911. Also many television animators like you have projects held over for some times more than fifteen years.

rodineisilveira said...

Johnny K.,

I also recognize this symbiosis involving Stimpy, Fred Flintstone and Garfield.

kurtwil said...

JK, why not at some point list some uncompleted JK projects, and rough estimates as to what's needed (hours, money, etc.) to finish them?

Yes a lot of animation projects never get finished. Mine went for years and was used to test new CGI software and inbetweening techniques (it's drawn, not 3D, and actually helped get work in FX !). But its design's too much inspired by Disney stuff and not original enough to take any farther. Hopefully I can learn enough here to try something more original!
