I have no excuse. I just really like drawing these boneheads. XD

I lost the link, but MysteryBen posted a character lineup of the Mystery skulls characters, and then someone else created an image that attached a grid so we could see then height each character fell under. If I remember right, Lewis is 7′3′‘. I don’t exactly know how tall the other guys are, but imagine my surprise when I found out that Brook is over 9 feet tall. Makes me wonder how some of these guys can fit through a door without hitting their heads against the top of the frame…

  • Me: Y'know what I love?
  • Anyone that's known me for five minutes: We know! You love Nicktoons Unite. You love to add ChalkZone and Bunsen is A Beast to the mix. Sophie is your biological child and Jimmy, Goddard, Timmy, Cosmo, Wanda, Poof, Danny, Sam, SpongeBob, Patrick, Tak, ZIM, GIR, Manny, Jenny, Mr. Blik, Snap, and Bunsen are all adopted by you. You've watched gameplay of Nicktoons Unite and all the episodes of the series's. Twice! WE KNOW!
  • Me: Oh okay...

NICK ANIMATION PODCAST

EPISODE #16: JORGE GUTIERREZ

It was the mighty Popeye who taught EL TIGRE: THE ADVENTURES OF MANNY RIVERA creator Jorge R. Gutierrez that “If you fight people bigger than you, for something greater than you, you can win the girl of your dreams!” Jorge’s fight for his artistic vision has been a heroic journey too. From his work on MAD to THE BOOK OF LIFE Jorge discusses why staying true to yourself, your culture and heeding the advice of a “good Mexican woman” are the keys to success!

Listen on:

Huge thank you to Jorge for joining us! Stay connected and follow him on Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr.

Keep up with our intrepid host Hector on his own Twitter and Instagram pages. And stay tuned to NickAnimation25 for next week’s podcast featuring John Davis!

That Day of the Dead episode of El Tigre, The Grave Escape, makes a lot more sense after watching The Book of Life.

Manny’s ancestors (hero and villain alike) are majorly pissed he ate their Day of the Dead offerings, and yeah, it’s obvious for the blatant disrespect for his family and ancestors. But then you watch TBOL and find out souls that aren’t remembered are sent to The Land of the Forgotten (where Xibalba reigns).

For those who don’t know, The Land of the Forgotten is not a fun place to go. Very depressing. 

It makes sense that Manny’s ancestors weren’t just pissed/hurt that they were forgotten but were probably scared shitless about the very real possibility they would be sent to The Land of the Forgotten. It’s no wonder they were ready to kick Manny and Frida’s asses to hell and back once they realized who they were.

And yeah, El Tigre and TBOL are directly connected. Manolo is Manny’s third cousin (maternally), and Joaquin has an unknown relation to Frida. Sartana is La Muerte and Xibalba’s daughter. El Tigre is essentially a semi-not completely direct sequel TBOL.

Again, Jorge Guitirrez and Sandra Equihua are freaking geniuses, and really need TBOL sequels. 

A Little Heart-to-Heart

So…this is something I’ve wanted to do for a little while now. This is based on @atomi-cat‘s Boneheads AU. It’s one of my favorite AUs of all time and I always get so excited when I see she’s drawn more of them. Everyone should check it out if you love skeletons.

Ironically enough, this is a follow up to her Follow Up comic :P

I’m sorry if this isn’t perfect, or it goes against the AU in any way, but this is just a little thank you to Atomi for all the fun her art and comics bring to me. Thank you Atomi, and I hope you like this :>
