Okay, this is one of those things found from looking for other things... most immediate excitement first. i love crappy old cartoons almost as much as i love Frank Conniff, AKA Mystery Science Theater 3000's "TV's Frank".
While researching other MST3K related developments, this interview at Quick Stop Entertainment with Conniff got my attention. From there i found his new show, Cartoon Dump, written by Frank and co-produced with Jerry Beck, drawing upon Beck's vast collection of 'vintage' cartoons. Viewable as podcasts, on YouTube, and monthly live performances in Hollywood and N.Y.C., the five episodes so far have Frank as "Moodsy the Clinically Depressed Owl", Erica Doering, Kathleen Roll, and Joel Hodgson as "Dumpster Diver Dan".
The cartoons are pretty scary, but what is reeeaally scary is that i recognized all five of the 'toons from my childhood. About now you should be clicking off to Cartoon Dump for more, and to sign up for updates.
But wait - there's more. You're probably aware of RiffTrax, the Michael J. Nelson post MST3K project with Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett. But just this week Joel Hodgson announced a brand new movie riffing project, Cinematic Titanic, combining his talents with those of Frank Conniff, Mary Jo Pehl, Trace Beaulieu, and Josh Weinstein. A film has already been licensed for the first show, and a release is expected by the end of the year. The Cinematic Titanic site has been Slashdotted, so if it's down, keep trying until you can get on the mailing list.
And one more thing. according to The Satellite News, Best Brains is launching a weekly animated web show in November starring our favorite 'bots. Keep watching MST3K.com in about a week's time for the show produced and written by Jim Mallon and Paul Chaplin. Does that cover pretty much everyone we know from every season of the old show?
