Episode #67 – How Did This Get Made?! – Animation Edition

Generally speaking, in animation, if you can dream it and draw it, you can make it. Cartoons have so many examples of unexpected, daring creative ideas that become classics. On occasion, however, an occasional cartoon comes along that can be a bit of a head-scratcher. Maybe they’re based on something that doesn’t have a clear cut story, or a property that might not be the most kid-friendly in hindsight. The panel has assembled a list of cartoons, that might make one wonder, “how did that get made in the first place?”
