New Goon Cartoons will be released every day in June at 9am (PDT). Viewers can also expect Goon Cartoons behind the scenes videos, storyboard animatics, and animation pencil tests to give the fans a look at how cartoons are made. Also, the Goon Cartoons’ artists will be posting behind the scenes drawings in the channel’s community tab along will model sheets and other “how to” instructions for making animated cartoons.

THE CARTOONS:

Buck Billy, an agitated hillbilly who lives in a trailer park in the southern Midwest. Buck Billy’s character is that of an opinionated podcaster who can’t help but spout out about the goings on in the world. Buck Billy’s previous podcasts include rants on alcohol, Viagra, Cardi B, Corey Feldman, holiday parking, and more.

Co-created by artist/director Frank Forte and actor/director Jesse Bernstein, Buck Billy is a short form comedic animated series that’s done in a rough cartoon style that matches its coarse and edgy content.

Pissed off Possum: a small angry misinformed marsupial spouts off on daily news stories and things that bother him, which is pretty much everything.

Mr. Pigglesworth: is a tribute to the classic cartoons like Old Warner Brothers Looney Tunes and Ren and Stimpy. Mr. Pigglesworth is a pathetic little pig who finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time. Expertly animated by Gene McGuckin.

Mr. Pigglesworth

Cosmic Kandi’s Like Total EDM Vlog, a twenty-something millennial Raver girl podcasts from her bedroom and any EDM club she might be at. She’s trying to find herself in the midst of going clubbing, dating DJs, and trying to find a ride to Burning Man.

The Ultra Mega Super Squad, a reality show styled Superhero documentary. This animated dysfunctional group of superheroes may be able to do some good for the earth if they could only stop talking behind each other’s backs.

The Devil, a reluctant Lucifer. The Devil has a podcast. Yes, believe it or not Satan is tired of getting blamed for all the bad things that happen in the world and he’s here to set things straight.

The Devil

ANIME! ANIME! Meet Jazen. The most enthusiastic fan of Anime you’ll ever know! He somehow finds himself meeting up with all of his Anime idols. He tries to have a conversation with them, but his fast talking, annoying, ADHD personality always gets in the way.

ANIME! ANIME!

Garry Goth, a teenage goth kid, trying to get along in high school. Girls, parties, exams, these are all the things Garry is trying to deal with as he invites us into his world.

The Cletus and Floyd Show, is the tale of two hillbilly brothers. Cletus is a big brawny overbearing Alpha male and his little brother Floyd is a nervous, jittery paranoid fool. The two of them get into all sorts of mischief. Also inspired by Classic cartoons of the 1950s.

Review: Bob’s Burgers Vol. 2 #1

BobsV2-01-Cov-A-ForteWhen I went to New York Comic Con this past October, the one show that almost everyone wanted to cosplay as was Bob’s Burgers. It was also one of the few shows that had a huge line for their panel on the first day. Also, my daughters happened to be fans of the show, so when I told them that Dynamite was rolling out a second volume of the comic series, they were ecstatic.

The series had a fine first run, so one would only hope the second volume, would maintain the consistency. Just like the first run, each issue is divided into several mini stories, which makes each issue stand on its own, and gives the reader, more freedom than most comics. It does not ask one to follow story arc with a promise of satisfying ending. Instead you get that within a few pages.

In the first story, Tina’s Erotic Friend Fiction Presents: Take A Chance on me(s), Brian Hall imagines his own version of Multiplicity to hilarious results. In Bob’s Fantasy Food Truck Concept Art: Double Black Dining, Mike Olsen imagines Bob’s wildest fantasy of a food truck. In Louise’s Unsolved Mysteries and Curious Curiosities: What Lies Beneath Bob’s Burgers, Louise and the rest of the kids, find a few surprises lurking under her parents’ restaurant. In Linda’s Attempt to Take Nice Family Picture In Front of the Restaurant ( And How It always Goes Wrong) #273, is as funny as it sounds. In the final story, Gene’s Nursery Rhymes That Could Be One Day Be Songs Presents: Full Moon, Gene fantasizes how his life a singer would turn out.

The writing and the art is consistently good, and create in the essence of the show. Overall, a definite buy.

Story: Brian Hall, Mike Olsen, Justin Hook, and Loren Bouchard, Art: Frank Forte, Hector Reynoso, Anthony Aguinaldo, Ryan Mattos, and Derek Schroeder.
Story: 10.0 Art: 9.0 Overall: 8.5 Recommendation: Buy
