Throughout the production of Drawn, there have been so many great moments in interviews that didn't quite fit into any of our episodes, but we wanted to make sure that listeners got to hear them. So today, it's all random moments from chats with the voice actors, animators, and production staff who make some of our favorite shows and movies. via Knit

The Villains

Bad guys are integral to driving the plots of many stories, and animation is no different. But villains are as varied as heroes -- from Jafar in "Aladdin" to the Monarch in "The Venture Brothers," and everything in between. What makes the perfect villain in animation, and why do we love them so much? via Knit

The Animated Future

The Animated Future

2018-06-1300:34:39

From the Jetsons to Futurama, cartoons have long been envisioning what the world will be like in the space age. In many ways we've surpassed what animation told us to expect from technology. But animation's very existence is closely tied to technology in ways that enable that fantastic storytelling. via Knit
You Know, for Kids!

You Know, for Kids!

2018-06-0500:55:336

Cartoons have gone through a number of identity shifts in terms of their intended audience. How did a medium initially aimed at adults become such an essential part of childhood, and then blossom again as a genre full of adult-oriented content? How has animation for kids included grown-ups in the humor, and why has animation made just for adults gotten so popular? via Knit

Never meet your heroes. Tara is anti-vaxxer and Greg Cipes pushes the vaccines cause autism lie. it was truly depressing to see.

This whole series is just so delightful. I would love to have a second season that talks about Japanese animation - especially Studio Ghibli and Miyazaki's influence. And also something about Avatar the Last Airbender :)
