Rocket Dog, the TV Series

We here at Frederator Studios are very, very pleased to announce our partnership with Melbourne’s Studio Moshi in producing a Rocket Dog series for television under the guidance of creator Mel Roach. Mel’s “Rocket Dog” short has been a big hit on Cartoon Hangover, so let the bidding begin for the rights—nay, privilege!—to distribute the series. Read more about the project here.

Congratulations and thanks, Mel!

Cartoon Hangover presents, “Rocket Dog”

“Rocket Dog” burst from the mind of Mel Roach with a sulfuric dog-fart. Follow Bob as he desperately tries to woo a girlfriend while his loyal, yet deranged pet, Rocket Dog, presents new challenges at every turn. Bob’s bumbling hipster lifestyle may be a warning, or an invitation, as you see fit.

Hey it’s me! Dale Anderson! I make up one half of the animation team on ROCKET DOG, with the other half of course being the creator Mel Roach. When we were making it I was mostly responsible for animating Bob, but I did a few other scenes as well! Personally I mostly just do silly gifs and comics, but every now and then I’ll do a music video or something. I have many hobbies including: drawing, sitting, wearing hats and also drawing. I’m a very interesting person. You can find more of my work on my tumblr or my vimeo and sometimes even my youtube
