“Carl, your dang kitten is getting into everything.”

Ted the Animator: “I’ve had enough of his… ack, see? He just swatted away the top sheet while I was shooting a frame. He does this all the time.”

Carl the Animator: “Awww, he doesn’t mean any harm, do ya, little guy?”

Ted the Animator: “It’s not ok, it makes the layer too bright! You should know that by now, we’ve been making shows together for years.”

Carl the Animator: “Oh, c’mon, who’s gonna care if a weird alligator guy is a lil’ brighter for a frame?”

Ted the Animator: “He also did it here.

Carl the Animator: “C’mon, who’s gonna care if Fred Flintstone crouching next to a stable is oddly brighter for a frame?”

Ted the Animator: “And here.

Carl the Animator: “C’mon, who’s gonna care if a weird robo-dog… twisting himself into a spiral, while… clutching a log… is a lot brighter for a frame?”

Ted the Animator:AND HERE.

Carl the Animator: “C’mon, who’s gonna care if Scooby-Dum, on an ostrich, is way way brighter for a fra-”

Ted the Animator: “Hush, you. With our luck, we’ll learn that 70% of Hanna-Barbera’s audience is comprised of dog-ostrich-race-enthusiests.”

Carl the Animator: “That seems rather unlikely.”

Ted the Animator: “And they’ll all send very sternly-worded letters straight to your kitten.”

Carl the Animator: “Oh, I know little Carl can handle it. He’s quite–”

Ted the Animator: “…wait, did you just call him Carl? You named your kitten after yourself?”

Carl the Animator: “Well, officially, he’s named Carl’s Jr., ‘cause he’s like a littler Carl, and–” 

Ted the Animator: “…isn’t Carl’s Jr. the name of a restaurant chain?”

Carl the Animator: “…what? Naaaah.”

Ted the Animator: “I’m fairly sure it is.”

Carl the Animator: “Well, they’re gonna have to change their company’s name, ‘cause Lil’ Carl is the original Carl’s Jr.”

Ted the Animator: “Alright, alright… just don’t be surprised if someone tries to order a charbroiled burger and soda from your cat.”

Carl the Animator: “Shaddup.”

Carl the Animator: “Whoa whoa whoa, Ted, is it… getting darker?

Ted the Animator: “I… huh. That’s weird.”

Carl the Animator: “I swear I didn’t touch anything.”

Ted the Animator: “Well, maybe the circuit got- wait, no, no, it’s just your dang kitten playing with the dimmer switch.”

Carl the Animator: “D’awwwww, silly little guy! C’mere, you.”

Ted the Animator: “…you’re not gonna fix those frames, are you?”

Carl the Animator: “Why? It’ll just be a little dim in the middle of an episode. No biggie.”

Ted the Animator: “The sun doesn’t just randomly turn half off in the middle of the day! It makes no sense to randomly happen in an episode!”

Carl the Animator: “Wait! Shh shh shh… hear that?”

Ted the Animator: “…”

Carl the Animator: “That’s the sound of the kitten not caring, either.”

Ted the Animator: “You’re weird, carl.”
