“Oh, hey, Ted... do you have a minute?”

Ted the Animator: “…oh no.”

Carl the Animator: “What?”

Ted the Animator: “You’re being calm and polite. That’s never a good sign.”

Carl the Animator: “It’s no big deal, just a quick question. Remember last spring when you said I could direct the aesthetic of the next show ?”

Ted the Animator: “…no? Not at all?”

Carl the Animator: “It was a maybe-3-AM session… you were mumbling, face down, in a plate of pad thai….”

Ted the Animator: “Still no memory, but I do feel overtime should pay more if one wakes up after with noodles on their forehead.”

Carl the Animator: “True. Now, you know the stuff I’m best at, right?”

Ted the Animator: “Stealing my pens?”

Carl the Animator: “No, in animation, you dingus.”

Ted the Animator: “…bumping cels?”

Carl the Animator: “No! Exaggerated action! Smears! Tornado Discus Scooby!

Ted the Animator: “Ohhhhhhh! Actually, yeah, I can’t deny you’re good at ‘em, even though they come out terrifying half the time.”

Carl the Animator: “That’s no mistake. It’s just the way Shaggy would look if designed by Pablo Picasso. That’s vision, right there.”

Ted the Animator: “…I don’t like where this conversation is headed.”

Carl the Animator: “Look, this’ll be a show for little kids, right? Kids like wild, insane, over-the-top action.”

Ted the Animator: “…I think you’re thinking of BMX bikers, but I get the gist.”

Carl the Animator: “Wild bed-bouncing! Weird motion! Bodies moving all creepy and flowy like sock monkeys filled with jello!”

Ted the Animator: “…wait, what?

Carl the Animator: “We need smears. Lots of smears. Dozens, if not hundreds, all of the most exquisite nature!”

Ted the Animator: “…4-eyed-Scooby is gonna haunt my nightmares now.”

Carl the Animator: “Constant, madness! It’ll keep the little buggers engaged while mom goes to get a smoke.”

Ted the Animator: “These aren’t 1950s educational shorts, Carl.”

Carl the Animator: “More eyes! As many eyes as the frames can hold! A cornucopia of corneas!

Ted the Animator: “…um…”

Carl the Animator: “Stretchiness is key as well. The human spine should be a spring that puts Tigger to shame!”

Ted the Animator: “Well… that’s at least a little more normal in animation, ok.”

Carl the Animator: “Stretches that – when compressed horizontally – offer a mortifying vision of the denizens of The Abyss!

Ted the Animator: “…I stand corrected, and increasingly creeped out.”

Carl the Animator: “Surrealism! Every frame, a–…

…ok, I’m all out of monologue. Sanity is restored.”

Ted the Animator: “I don’t know whether to applaud or call a psychiatrist.”

Carl the Animator: “Well, on top of the obvious, wha’d’ya think?”

Ted the Animator: “I’m all for mixing things up, but… won’t it get old, having this much insanity in only one episode?”

Carl the Animator: “…who said anything about one episode? This plus waaaaay more is all gonna happen in the first 3 minutes of episode 1*

*no, seriously, it actually does

Ted the Animator: “…ohhhhhhhhhhhhh my.”

Carl the Animator: “Bask in the glory.”

Ted the Animator: “This is either going to be a masterpiece, a disaster, or a disasterpiece.”

Carl the Animator: “Get ready, fine art scene. A Pup Named Scooby-Doo is comin’ to town.”

Here’s a POS Podcast chunk. We talk about Luna Loud in The Loud House being bisexual.

Schedule for Disney XD, from this weekend to next Friday (SAT 24/6 to FRI 6/30), since their July schedule hasn’t been updated yet. Disney XD seems to do the best in variety for cartoon based networks, especially in early mornings and afternoons, which is primarily the time before kids leave for school and after kids come home from school. So props to them.
