Brit and Tiff beginnings




When we learned that Teenage Robot would become a tv series it was several years after the pilot was made, and Rob and I wanted to tackle the show with a new stylistic approach. Initially it was easier to find that new style through developing characters we had never seen before, so I started playing with the female bullie cousins Rob had described to me. At first I simply enjoyed playing with the visual style and costume ideas, but the suprise was watching how their personalities began to solidify (thanks to some valuable direction from Mr. Renzetti).

Fascinating. I love the fact that you put so much energy into the Supporting characters as well!

This show deserves seaopns 4 and 5 at least!

An Idea. If Nick is too Thick to reneww this Award winning show, Ask Frederator to have Nick Sell the rights to it to Toon Disney or Cartoon Network!

THey are Always looking for new talent and this show is Custom made for their audiences. If shoes like "Life and Times of Juniper Lee" and " HI HI Puffy Ami Yumi" are getting top Billing, MLaaTR is a Shoe-in as the next big Hit.

Tell Rob, Tell Fred Siebert, Tell ANYBODY, just save the SHOW!

Love it!

Hope to see more postings, hopefully. I loved seeing the old Wakeman...hint, hint. lol.

I agree with the Great One. Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi is already on DVD, and it's the (no offense to fans), in my opinion, the crummiest show on the planet. I love all of these posts!

Brit and Tiff wow these are really nice. Well to Renzetti The rest of your team, I do feel inspired by your work. It is funny, and It has great design work. However it seems alot of shows are taking notice of the you work in Mlaatr and are emulating them. "Life and times of Junpier Lee" seems to be a good exsample. Oh, I like June as much Jenny. They are both great characters.

Thank you very much for showing us some of the preproduction work for the show :)
As a fan of the series I consider this a kind act of your part before you pack everything up; and, as I had already stated in past entries, I see the guys at Nick aren't concerned anymore on bringing quality and original shows to us viewers as the need of getting high ratings... the cancelation of this show is the loss of one of the only american tv shows I consider witty, funny and entertaining (with this I mean that even though it's meant for kids, everyone can enjoy it).

As a personal favor, and before all the staff of Mlaatr goes away to walk their respective paths, please congratulate them from my part on creating and working on such a marvelous and wonderful show.

I wish you the best of lucks, take care and again thanks for giving us such a memorable cartoon!

Sincerely - J. R.

P.D. You guys were ahead of our times making such a great cartoon ;)

The Crust Cousins are very mean to Jenny because they are very rich, selfish, arrogant and spoiled rotten. And, their fashion clothes is too much and not matching and too heavy looks. They look like a clowns than a supermodel. And they look so ugly.

The Crust Cousins. Britney Crust and Tiffany Crust known as Brit and Tiff. The popular, spoiled brat, arrogant and also the bullies of Jenny Wakeman. These Crust Creeps needs some fashion police. Their clothes looks an eyesore and not a brand woman at all. I wish these two will gets expelled and bankup.

But, in MLAATR Season 03 - Queen Bee. Vexus dressed the Crust Cousins as nerds (They look like the two nerd boys main characters from Revenge of the Nerds). And, they were send to the nerds clubs. They head downs but I thought these Crust Cousins is afraid of nerds from MLAATR Season 02 - Teenage Mutant Ninja Troubles. In the end they been splashed a big ton of colesaw by Jenny. It means the Crust Cousins has no friends and they became the unpopular losers of Tremonton High in the end.
