First, wow, the Animaniacs Something Something Whatever Post now has 237 comments! Kudos! Seriously, thanks for sticking around to keep juice flowing here while we’re undergo reconstruction.

That said, The A! reboot has already happened now, and it’s not really big news anymore, so I don’t think we need to connect the assorted comment post to that anymore. So I’m un-pinning the A! Blah Blah Blah Post and Pinning this one instead. Use it the same way you used the previous one. As always, the same rules for comments still apply: Keep your comments, news and announcements relevant, clean, verified and attitude-free; anything that violates those ain’t gonna be published, so don’t try it and don’t try us. OK, now have at it!

    Inside Job is an upcoming adult Netflix series that will be released on October 22. The show is created by Gravity Falls writer Shion Takeuchi (with Alex Hirsch being an executive producer). The animation is done by Jam Filled Entertainment, whose works include The Loud House, The Casagrandes, Final Space, and season 1 of the 2019 DC Superhero Girls.

  2. Throughout 2018-2019, it was announced that various Disney creators and staff members had signed development deals to make content for the company. Two notable people who made this deal are Craig Gerber (creator of Sofia The First and Elena Of Avalor) and Travis Braun (the creator of TOTS and Pupstruction). One thing I wonder if if part of the deal means you’ll get at least 50 episodes and 2 seasons right off the bat. Let me explain. Last week, when Pupstruction was announced, Travis Braun said how he was given a great deal of trust by Disney to make 50 half hour episodes. Last month, when Craig Gerber talked about how production was going well for his upcoming show, he said that he’s putting the finish polish for episode 50. I’m guessing this will apply to any future shows from these specific creators.

  3. The recently released Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle Of The Realms had an opening variant of Shaggy grabbing Scorpion, and glowing a bright green almost like he’s a god. Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge had a similar gag of Scorpion grabbing Daffy when he acts loony.

    Besides the above, this is in reference to Scooby Doo: Legend Of The Phantosaur, where he beat up a bunch of bikers while he was hypnotized, and someone made a meme of it by adding Dragon Ball Z music to make it seem like he’s a god there.

    1. The whole “Shaggy is a god” thing has been a joke going around on the internet for a while now. I guess that Warner Bros. must’ve figured that they might as well make a DTV or something addressing this joke. Sure, Shag is hypnotized here, but it’s basically an excuse to show Shaggy kicking arse and taking names.

    The Ghost And Molly McGee was renewed for season 2. As for the rest of the voice cast, we have Jordan Klepper as the voice of Pete, Molly’s anxiously idealistic father, Sumalee Montano as the voice of Sharon and Grandma Nin, Molly’s creatively pragmatic mother and adoring grandmother, and Michaela Dietz as the voice of Darryl, Molly’s mischievously entrepreneurial brother.

    Kelsey Grammer, Natasha Rothwell, Greta Gerwig, Yvette Nicole Brown and Jane Lynch are among the names to guest in season one.

    1. Jordan Klepper’s the dad, eh? Good for him. I imagine sitting in a sound booth recording lines will be a nice change of pace from having to travel to all of those hillbilly hate rallies.

  5. Here’s some interesting information on pages 48-49 of this online magazine. Much like with Phineas And Ferb, series creators Bill Motz & Bob Roth spent 14 years trying to pitch the concept of The Ghost And Molly McGee. At one point, they pitched the series to Nickelodeon, but they declined it. This was back when they were working on The Penguins Of Madagascar. This wouldn’t be the only time Nickelodeon rejected a series and then it ended up produced by another network. This show, Phineas And Ferb, and The Proud Family were all pitched to Nickelodeon at some point before being accepted by Disney Channel. The original Adventure Time pilot was produced for Nickelodeon, but the actual show went to Cartoon Network. The Mighty Ones was also pitched to Nickelodeon in 2013 before it was picked up DreamWorks in 2016 and then came out on Hulu and Peacock in 2020.

  6. Here’s the article announcing three upcoming projects for Cartoonito. These include Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed: An Underground Rock Special (a 1 hour special written by Mo Willems and Tom Warburton), Tom And Jerry Time (the musical shorts about educational concepts), and Batwheels (which I’m pretty psyched for).

    1. Having seen that clip of Tom & Jerry Time, we now know that this won’t be a kiddification the way some fans speculated that it might be back when the show was being called Tom & Jerry Junior. Also, again judging by that clip, it looks like Tom and Jerry won’t be talking in this, as someone on DeviantArt thought might have been the case. Personally, I don’t get why fans act like it would be so unthinkable to have T&J speak in a new project, as they’ve spoken in the original theatrical shorts. They were never yakking it up from start to finish, but they have spoken a line or two in some shorts, I don’t why they can’t be doing that now.

    1. Lola sounds like one of the Chipettes. I don’t dislike the voice, but it’s quite a jump from Lola having Zendaya’s voice in Space Jam: A new Legacy to…that. If there’s one thing I’d like to see Warner do in the future, it’s land on one specific voice, personality and set of mannerisms for Lola and stick with it; everyone knows who Bugs is, everyone knows who Daffy is and everybody knows who Porky is, but Lola’s character changes from project to project.

      But I digress. That clip looked like fun, and WB does seem to be trying to keep a Looney Tunes feel to the show despite it being aimed at a younger audience. We’ll have to see how that goes over.

      1. If nothing else, some of Lola’s mannerisms in the clip seem to show that, regardless of what her role in the series will be, she isn’t afraid to get more expressive, which is a step in the right direction.

    2. For a couple of shows designed to keep tiny tots distracted for a few minutes, those were animated quite well. That’s some of the smoothest hand drawn animation I’ve seen on TV lately. Clearly, Warner Bros. is sparing no expense for the Cartoonito shows which are based on established properties. Bugs Bunny Builders and Tom and Jerry Time both have better looking hand drawn animation that some of the adult cartoons that I’ve seen.

      1. That might explain why those shows weren’t ready to launch today. Quality animation takes time to produce.
