An Announcement

This KeenTOON does not need a description because the title says it all.

An Announcement

I completely forgot about that.

Anyway, the announcement is basically "Pete Won't Return". Starting Tuesday 2nd June, a new KeenTOON will be opening. It's called Planet Arse. What's it about? Who knows. It'll be a differet cartoon every fortnight with different characters.

Why am I doing this? Well, I get easily bored with doing series'. I finished my old 21 series after a few episodes, because I just got sick of it. I'm also tired with Pete after just seven episodes (that's right, I made a seventh. It might be an extra on a KeenTOONS-related DVD.)

With this new site, it'll be a nice experiment for me. The cartoons will be about 3-4 minutes long, and it won't have any main characters or anything. It'll probably be based on things I've seen, general annoyances, or other crap my mind churns out that particular week.

Updates will be fortnightly to give me a chance to animate something within that timespace. So no complaining about it.

(ignore the fact it says "Coming in May".)

Not sure what you mean by that. If you mean "is there anyone helping you", then yes. Expect names like Nick Brett, Richard Nelson, Matty Jorissen and Andrew Taylor to be in the credits of these cartoons.

Nah, I meant along the lines of anyone else doing this kind of irregular series idea.

I wanted to do something like that...once.

I had loads of crazy ideas like 'Heaven tech support' and 'Alex vs Spider' and 'Jimmies lucky biscuit' (actually I made that one up just now...)

lol u shuld make Pete a main character!!1

Okay, seriously now. This looks like a pretty good idea, especially if it keeps you more motivated to do the cartoon with all its diversion. I'll be looking forward to it!

This sounds harder than making Pete episodes. I don't understand how this could be better... But hey if it works for you more power to ya.

It's better, purely because it's holding my interest more. Usually, if I had a plot idea that had nothing to do with Pete, I'd somehow put it in very awkwardly (the hypnotist on Pete #2... The Saga of Ryzom ad on Pete #6...).

Now, I'd get to do crazy one-off cartoons and other ideas. Plus, I get the chance to return two of my favourite characters I've created in the past.

Sounds like it could be good... as long as you don't just air all the old Pete is a Pogostick episodes and then decide it's too hard.

yet again pete dissapoints me.

what I never got was why he shut down the whole entire site when he could have just left it up so people could still see the cartoons if they felt like it.

So your not doing the planet arse thing anymore or your doing both? This is confusing, because won't be it be more hard work to do both.

Just Pete.

Basically, I've got three finished episode of Pete already, and for PlanetArse, I've got nothing but crappy half-finished cartoons. I think you all deserve to get some animation from me- you've all waited long enough anyway.
