Dear Carl and Ted: Will we ever get to see what you look like? And if not, who do you two look most like from the show?

Carl the Animator: “As a matter of fact, guess what I just got commissioned.”

Ted the Animator: “…ohhhh?”

Carl the Animator: “Turns out, Colin’s sister Lydia is quite the artist, in addition to being a graphic designer. And English teacher. And international spy, prolly.” 

Ted the Animator: “And you commissioned her to draw us?”

Carl the Animator: “Yup, and check out these freakin’ amazing renditions.

Ted the Animator: “No! No. No. No no no.”

Carl the Animator: “Fiiiiine.”

Ted the Animator: “…that said, though, dang I’m handsome. I look like I should be advertising watches in a 1950s magazine.”

Carl the Animator: “Uh-huh! And she drew my lab coat and everything.”

Ted the Animator: “Hey, wait, you have been wearing a lab coat today. What’s that all about?”

Carl the Animator: “Well, Lydia had – as it turns out– always pictured us as wearing lab coats like scientists. Despite our extreme non-scientific-ness.”

Ted the Animator: “…but you’ve been wearing one today.”

Carl the Animator: “Yeah, because it’s freakin’ awesome and I’m totally wearing a lab coat from now on.”

Ted the Animator: “Are you seriously making a long-term fashion decision based off of a sleep-deprived sister picturing you weirdl–”

Carl the Animator:Yes. Definitely.”

Ted the Animator: “…never change, Carl. Never change.”
