Episode IX: A Day at the Zoo

When the local zoo is running low on funds, there’s only one way to save it–a rock ‘n roll show! But just like rock ‘n roll, there’s some nasty alongside the sweet as students battle to save the zoo from itself. Unlike a lot of other recent episodes, this one is quite lengthy and therefore took a fairly large group ... Read More »

Episode VIII: Muddied Waters

The tragedy of the flood in Nashville, TN is brought into sharp focus by the tragedy that is celebrity telethons.  Celebrities such as Mike Myers, Taylor Swift, and Garth Brooks unite to save Nashville, while the Professor Hobo characters look on. Read More »

Episode VII: Tiger Beat

The campus comes to a standstill when the latest celebrity scandal grabs everyone’s attention.  Originally started as a comic, the idea soon became too unwieldy for the printed page.  Right before dropping it entirely we wondered if it might work best as an animation, and so here it is.

Trailer: Black Friday

What originally began as a small idea for a comic soon snowballed.  The Black Friday concept was originally supposed to be a normal three-panel comic.  However, when the idea simply couldn’t be fit within three panels it got turned into the first expanded six-panel strip in full-color.  And that, gave us an idea.

Episode VI: Klowning Around

The sixth episode is technically the seventh episode.  So, how did it end up being labeled the sixth episode?  Originally a script was written for a sixth episode that was to center around the student characters at a summer camp.  Early production work even began on the episode with some drawings and rough scene animations completed.  However, as work proceeded ...

Episode V: Goat Me

Produced originally for College Sports Television (CSTV), the fifth episode had the shortest turn around time of any episode.  After finishing the fourth episode, CSTV contacted us and requested a second episode to air.  Obviously they again wanted a sports theme, but they also wanted it in one month.  That meant from starting the script to rendering the final cut ...

Episode IV: Striking Out

The fourth episode was the first originally produced for College Sports Television (CSTV).  They wanted a cartoon that focused on college students playing sports.  It seemed a little generic to do a basketball or football story, so instead we picked an even more generic sport and went with bowling.  Actually, we spent a great deal of time in college bowling, ...

Episode III: The King and Us

The third episode was an attempt at doing a real episode for television. We formulated a full storyline, aimed at the commercial-friendly 22-minute range, and set to work. After the events of the first episode and all the controversy it spurred, President Czar had been rising in popularity as one of our favorite characters, as well as our readers. So ... Read More »

Episode II: Bada Bing!

The second episode was under production before the first ever premiered.  The idea was that it was going to be the controversial episode, since we took shots at every religious denomination just about imaginable.  Surely with the episodes airing in a fairly Bible Belt heavy part of America, this would be the episode that got people enraged and calling for ...

Episode I: The Story of O

Behind the Scenes The first episode ever of the cartoon took the longest and definitely sparked the most attention.  Work began on the episode in around June of 2002.  At that time, neither David nor Justin had much experience writing or animating a cartoon. "I had written short films before, but this had a completely different feel to it from ... Read More »
