A cartoon spinoff of the SpaceHospital live-action webseries. Watch gallant crew fix the sick and ugly of Space. Special guest stars!

Hi everybody, Rob & Sig here--

We created the live-action webseries SpaceHospital, an ensemble cast winner at this year's L.A.WebFest. And now we're very excited to be making the animated series! We're producing twelve 1-2 minute episodes to start with, releasing one a week. Three solid months of SpaceHospital's tender loving care! 

THE SHOW:

The animated show follows the SpaceHospital crew as they heal, cosmetically enhance, and love a shipful of special guest stars from Earth, and beyond. It's E.R. meets Dr. Katz, with some Sealab 2021 and Space Ghost Coast to Coast sprinkled in.

THE CREW:     

Dr. Digby Carver -- The young upstart, fresh from Earth Medicine Academy.

Omacron - The alien doctor with the giant brain and small moral compass.

Dr. Philip B. (Beth) Goode - The salty veteran. An Earth-man, through and through.

Nurse Ratknee - Beneath her stern dangerous facade lies her stern dangerous heart.

Nurse Barbara - Manning main desk, Nurse Barbara's got it all, and she's keeping it.

Guest Stars - SpaceHosptial patients are classic sci-fi figures, as well as anyone real or fictitious in pop culture. We're looking to redefine Fair Use copyright law!

THE MONEY:

With our $6000 minimum, we'll put $500 towards each of the twelve episodes, mainly for marketing expenses. Why so cheap? The sad fact is we do all of this stuff ourselves, and we're pretty good at it. If you haven't yet, take a look at our live series. With us, your contributions go far! So most of your dough will go to our marketing efforts, such guerrilla QR code campaigns, and paying the lawyers for our botched publicity stunts.

The great news is that with us you will get a fast return. Right now, we're finishing up design and starting up our recording. We'll be launching the weekly episodes by the end of summer. That's good cartoonerizing!

ONE MORE THING:

We are really excited to launch an animated SpaceHospital. We hope you'll check us out and consider kicking in. We strongly recommend your taking the $25 Associate Producer credit, and getting one for your neighbor. We want as many producers as can be conceived! It's the modern version of everybody piling into a phone booth.
