Oh Yeah! George Escobar & Bob Lizaraga.

George Escobar is an editor of television series, and Bob Lizaraga is an animation artist. Spaghetti & Meatball is their very clever, very well drawn cartoon storyboard pitch.

As you can see, the Frederator development team's been seeing dozens of cartoons that would like to be a part of the 4th season of Oh Yeah! Cartoons. Sometime in the next month or two you'll be seeing our choices for the first shorts in this round of the series. I can tell you right now, the quality of the work has been high enough that we're going to have a hard time of it.

Thank you George and Bob, for kind permission to show some of your storyboard pages.

The hits just keep on coming. Postcards, Series 5.

pc 2.4
Frederator launched the shorts from Oh Yeah! Cartoons in 1998. In the first season alone we had Larry Huber's and Bill Burnett's ChalkZone, and Butch Hartman's The Fairly Oddparents. (And, not incidentially, the first film from Bob Boyle, who went on to be the FOP art director, and creator of Wubby, Widget, & Walden). Second season, Rob Renzetti's My Neighbor was a Teenage Robot, which, of course led to the series My Life as as Teenage Robot.

So our latest round of limited edition postcards remind me of how much everyone has accomplished. I see in last week's New York Times that FOP is in the top 15 of cable programming four times (more than any other show of any kind); Teenage Robot is producing its third season (a total of 40 episodes); and, ChalkZone is stripping daily on Nickelodeon. (Not to mention the beginning of production of Wubby, Widget & Walden). I'm incredibly proud we're associated with such amazing talent.
