...because every animation I ever do will now be done with GoAnimate! Now I can make a Geoweasel cartoon every day! The characters might look different, and they won't actually talk, and I won't be drawing any of it,but it's totally cool! Check it out!
You can take the alien that you didn't even have to draw and actully put him behind the desk! BEHIND IT! Holy shit! Think of all the time, money, and dignity I could've saved!
The first Scotsman one wasn’t funny nor was it fun to watch, and it was only released two weeks ago. Then we got some ducks doing the same thing last week. Now, we’re back to the Scotsman. This may as well be called “Seth MacFarlane’s Cavalcade of Cartoon Characters Sitting on Couches Watching TV and Talking About It.” Your stuff used to be hilarious, Seth. You didn’t need the aid of pop-culture references and limited animation to be funny. You’d know that if you were using your brain, but you’re not

All I ever wanted to do was make cartoons.
I don't know where I went wrong.

In May 2005, not long after Geoweasel had become a regular series on the web (the "regular" part wouldn't last for long), a friend of mine showed me a press release about Oh Yeah! Cartoons season 4 (now "Random Cartoons") coming and that they were looking for pitches. I wanted any part of that action I could possibly have. Immediately, I started thinking about a way to transform the Geoweasel internet formula into something suitable for TV (and of course, something the people at Frederator would like). I kept the ideas to myself for a while, aside from the pictured teaser image with Nar; I posted that on the series' forum with nothing else, letting people just kinda ponder it, I guess. By early June, when I had a decent amount of stuff going to pitch, I released this blog post. (Unfortunately, the link to the storyboard scan is now defunct, which sucks, because I've been looking all over for the ones I drew up. They have to exist somewhere.) Not long after that, things started going downhill in general, so I never finished the pitch board; I figured it wasn't that great anyway and certainly wouldn't impress anyone. There was just nothing really different or outstanding about it. Looking back and just reading that post, it's just as well. I know a lot more now than I did back then, and I still don't know all I need to. I was in way over my head. Not to mention, I was 15 at the time. I can't even make it to New York now, so even if I did finish the pitch, it's likely I would never have gotten the chance to present it. It's definitely better than what I wanted to send to them in 1998, though!

I am the king of unfinished cartoons. This was an animation I started not long after I first got my tablet in May 2005, which is pretty evident when you watch this. The whole thing was unscripted and supposed to be like...improv between the characters, which is hard since I voice all of them. The only stuff that got finished was Nar's opening (with an odd lip sync) and a short intro, followed by some non-animated dialog between Nar and Weas. Click here to see it.
