The latest direct to DVD movie Scooby-Doo! “Where’s My Mummy?” recently came out and ANIMAX had our paws in it. Using Flash, we animated Shaggy and Scooby once again for a brand new short in collaboration with National Geographic called “Scooby-Doo: The Curse of the Lost Lunch.” This is defintitely the best one in the series of shorts we did for Warner Bros. releases for Scooby, Tom & Jerry and Kangaroo Jack. This time, the short was written by Ed Scharlach, a television writing legend.

Who’d a thought that one half of Bob and Doug McKenzie was a budding country music star? And a Grammy nominated one at that — beat that Carrie Underwood! Rick Moranis recently released a new country album called The Agoraphobic Cowboy and the first track “Nine More Gallons” is a hoot.

Listen to a recent interview with Rick on KCRW.

ANIMAX just created an interactive story, kind of a low-fi “Choose Your Own Adventure,” featuring McGruff the Crime Dog. We worked directly with the non-profit Ad Council — who were great to work with — for their client the National Crime Prevention Council. The Flash animated interactive shorts that we scripted try to help kids decide the best way to deal with a bully.

The pilot episode of a new series Animax animated in Adobe Flash is airing on G4 this coming Wednesday at midnight as part of Happy Tree Friends & Friends (what a name – bet it wins for longest title). Written by Obie Scott Wade of ObieCo, it’s a show about a hapless garbage man who finds a superhero power ring. The only thing is, the ring was meant for a woman, hence the title, SheeZaam! It’s kind of a dirty so don’t let the kiddies watch it.

ANIMAX had a wrap party for the Disney Mickey, Pooh and Character Gallery sites at Universal City Walk’s Howl at the Moon. City Walk at night is like some post-modern EPCOT Center. Lots of costumes and posturing but it’s a totally saccharine environment – folks dressed like hardcore Goths mixing with gangster rappers mixing with frat boys and Barbie doll girls all full out jamming to the cheeseball dueling pianists featured at the bar. What more could you ask for?! Anyways, it was nice to celebrate and it was clear that everyone likes how the sites turned out.
