About

As an ageless being Death hates her existence. Due to the constant feelings of misery she has she tried to make things a little bit better by creating children. Pudgy and Pudgette. Death is sick of dealing with the dead. Sick of repeating herself constantly. She finds herself being drawn closer to the few friends she has. She longs for nothing more than to have a normal life, free of her depressing job, free from being yelled at all the time. Death has no contact with the living and cannot tell you how you died or what your unfinished business is. She tries to bring some normality to Undertown with a Halloween celebration and the Games of Life. Death also controls the mood of Undertown, so whatever she is feeling the town is feeling. Not the town’s people but the town itself reacts to her. Because she is so depressed the town resembles a beat up old abandoned mining town. 

The weather in Undertown also reflects her moods, so it is always overcast and depressing and all the plant life is dead. Pudgy, like his sister, is made up from bits children that have come into Undertown over its existence. Pudgy and Pudgette have no set age, they look like children and have been in Undertown nearly as long as Death. Pudgy does his best to make things better but ends up making them worse. Pudgette, due to the bits used to make her has a mild form of schizophrenia. This jig-saw style family has a close group of friends that helps make the afterlife a little more bearable.

Undertown is a small town of eight permanent residence on the River Styx. There are five ‘human’ residence that have been chosen by Death to help her process the dead. Vi is like Death’s receptionist/personal assistant. Stumpy, Blane and Sergeant Arms are the Undertown equivalent of security guards, but mainly there to keep the piece with large crowds. Rosie is there to give the two girls (Death and Vi) someone to hang out with.

To make Undertown stand out among the cartoon shows on television involving death i have tried to keep it as realistic as possible. There is no magic, no monsters and not fantasy. I am also very aware of different religions, life choices and views on death as i write so i have done my best not to religion bash and take sides. It is something i have taken pride in addressing so not to offend anyone. 

Risks and challenges

The main challenge for completing this is time. So far this project has been a 10 year labor of love but to complete it i need to start to pay people for their time and effort. I also have to find an animator, which is where the big expense comes in. Once an animator is found there will be no stopping Undertown reach it's full potential.
