A Googy Cartoon And YO Gabba Gabba Comics

Myke Chilian and I made this short cartoon for the Channel 101 show Googy! It's a Pee Herman style kid's show, so we decided to make a 30s-esque cartoon. Both of us have day jobs so we worked on it at night. We wrote and recorded the song too. Here's the cartoon by itself:

Here's my early 30s style title card for the cartoon:

Here is the whole show, Googy Episode 3! Definitely check out the other episodes too! For those of you unfamiliar with Channel 101 rules, no show can exceed 5 minutes :p

Here we are as squirrels <3

A 5 page comic I wrote, drew and colored is in the newly released Yo Gabba Gabba Comic Book Time Anthology!!!

Buy it on Amazon! Or goto your local comic book store! LOTS of amazing artists in it, including friends Becky of Tigerbuttah, and Julia Vickerman!

I'm bummed I couldn't make it to the screening but I'm glad you guys had a ton of fun at the event. And the short is amazing! You guys all did a great job on it.

Plus, the gabba gabba comic you did is the best. I need to borrow it so I can read the whole thing!

Kali Fontecchio said...

And totally borrow the YGG comic book whenever!

I see you've pirated Pat Powers' Cinephone logo which, considering Powers' reputation, is a nice bit of karma.

Kali Fontecchio said...

I think I grabbed it from a Flip the Frog cartoon title Yowp :p

Great job! That guy that plays Googy, he's got "it". You look at him and know you're supposed to laugh.
The cartoon was smart and varied. Any certain software you use for it?

Kali Fontecchio said...

Hey Ellis! Myke and I just used Flash and Photoshop. I'm guessing Mike and Willy used After Effects, but that's just me guessing.

Nico said...

Great job guys!

That's one of the nicest homages to 1930s cartoons that I've seen in quite a while. You and Myke really nailed the style there, and made it cute and funny too. Overall, pure awesomeness all around.

Kali Fontecchio said...

THanks Fawn!

And Thanks Roberto! I'm glad we pulled it off, especially in the small amount of time we did it in ^_^

Mia Araujo said...
