A new cartoon variety show that's too silly for it's own kind. If you miss the Animaniacs & The Looney Tunes, than brother, this is it!

About this project

Hey Folks! Thanks for finding my project on Kickstarter. I love cartoons, no, I mean, REALLY, REALLY love cartoons! I know you guys love cartoons too, so thats why I started this campaign. (Please watch video above for details)

I am going to be doing a cartoon variety show with characters I have been developing for over two years. Think of all the greats: “Looney Tunes”, “Rocky & Bullwinkle”, “Animaniacs” and the early “Simpsons” shorts on the,“Tracy Ullman Show”. They were anywhere from 15 seconds, to a minute and a half. I thought I would start small, and see what my audience thinks. Fun, right?!

http://www.nbcbayarea.com/video/#!/on-air/as-seen-on/Meet-the-Creator-of-Slap-Toons/171946741

But......I NEED YOUR HELP!!! I would like to make 3 skits of each cartoon idea to have a full variety show. In total, I can produce an 8 minute show. The variety show is called, “Slaptoons”. The first skit idea is a family of evil failed scientist called, “The Eevils”. The second is about a family from the mid-west that finds treasure maps and searches for gold called, “The Traveling Hillbillies”. And third is about a Russian family that broadcast from the underground in Moscow called, “With Vladimir”.

And the best part.......there will be famous people to doing the voices!!!

June Foray: Rocky & Natasha from Rocky & Bullwinkle, Granny & Witch Hazel from the Looney Tunes. IMDB her. Wow!
Shelley Berman: Legendary comedian and actor
Tom Kenny: Spongebob Squarepants and 15 billion other cartoon voices he has done in the industry.
Joe Alaskey: Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny, Yosemite Sam, and countless other cartoons
Gregg Berger: The Garfield Show, Garfield & Friends, Transformers the animated series, Gi-Joe animated, Duckman, Real Monsters etc.

So here's the cartoons in order: Episodes to Animate:
Traveling Hillbillies:
1.Gas Station
2.Have you seen the Pan?

With Vladimir:
1.iGoat
2.Penguin
3.Penguin pt 2

The Eevils:
1.The Pharmacy part 1
2.The Pharmacy part 2
3.The Pharmacy part 3
4.The Flying Rascal
