      @Lucas - the original drawings and prints are shipping flat. Many people have already received there's. More are in transit and the rest are going out this week and next. The international ones will certainly take a little longer to reach their destinations. Thanks!

      @Andrew - We sent out an update on March 29. Are you not getting the update emails? Here's the update again:

      Hi,

      We've been working like crazy to get more of the rewards out the door. In fact, some of you should be receiving packages in the next few weeks. We're doing our best to fulfill all the rewards this spring - except for the password-protected link and DVDs of CHEATIN'. As previously mentioned, those can't be released until after our Oscar-qualifiying theatrical run this summer or fall. The film continues to play at film festivals while we look for distribution and plan our Oscar campaign. Small changes may even be necessary to the film before we can distribute, so rest assured, we'll be sharing the FINAL film with you as soon as we're allowed to do so without jeopardizing our Oscar chances. If you pledged for a lithograph print, original animation drawing, or caracature, keep your eyes out for packages from us in the coming month and tweet us pictures to @plymptoons when they arrive.

      Thanks,

      BP

      Mr. Plympton,
      Congratulations about the sucess of the project!
      But I ask you: please take care with the packages. I received some books of other Kickstarter projects very damaged by the postal service. Look, a lot of the backers are comics/art collectors and we like to receive our books and other products in perfect conditions. I will let these mesages in all the projects that I participated.
      Thank you very much
      Francisco Jacobina

      Creator Bill Plympton on February 20, 2013

      Gen - So just to clarify, you want the $140 package of rewards plus the "special thanks" credit, is that correct? I just want to make sure since the $200 tier does not include the signed DVD, but the $140 tier does not include the book. Please email us at cheatin@plymptoons.com with your preference. Thanks!

    15. Missing_small

      Creator Gen on February 20, 2013

      Greetings - this may be a "feature" of Kickstarter. I backed for an initial $140, but then increased to $200 (honestly, to get a credit at the end of Cheatin' more than anything else - 1.5 seconds of fame, y'know?). But Kickstarter lists me at $140...

      Hate to be greedy and all - but still hoping for a "special thanks" mention...

      A loyal fan in any case - GM

      Creator Charlie Ballard on February 1, 2013

      Hey Bill! Absolutely astounded by this process and the fact that someone who I spontaneously came to adore one late night in 1994 is so friendly and open and yet talented enough that it looks like they're going to end up making an amazing movie via this new world we live in.

      Funny, if there's anyone who I'd think could create an incredible, animated version of Kickstarter showing all these people across the country merging into new ideas supported by the creative geniuses responsible for creating the ideas, it'd be you. Kickstarter should really tap you to create a commericial for them.

      Minor quibble: is there a way to create longer but less frequent updates? Looks like I've been getting a new update email every 1-2 days since signing up... maybe once a week would be okay? I don't want zero but would be nice to have time to look forward to the next. "I miss *missing you*." :)

      Hey Bill!

      First of all, congrats for hitting the goal, I hope that you'll be able to get few more bucks to do even more amazing stuff and avoid coffee shortage :)!

      I'm sorry to bother you with that, but i have a small question: As one of your European fan, will I be able, with the right pledge, to get a dvd with an appropriate European region code?
      That would be fantastic, because your films are quite hard to find in the right version over here, but I won't change my pledge anyway, I am glad to help you realise what will be another awesome movie for sure !

      Good luck!
