ANNIE AWARDS BLOWOUT! The mood is low in Mudville for Mighty Casey has struck out. Nominated for three prestigious Annie Awards for excellence in animation, "Teenage Robot" was 0 for 3 at the end of last night's gala awards ceremony at the Alex Theater in Glendale. We were up for best animated series, but lost to a freakin' sponge!!! Can you believe it? Buoying our spirits is the amazing response we've gotten from all of you about the new shows that have just aired. Let's see if we can get a consensus: Of all ten new stories aired, which was your favorite?

BIRD-BRAINED ANNIES MAKE FOR AN INCREDIBLE NIGHT! It was great to see the whole Teenage Robot crew at the awards show last night dressed in their finest rags, but the event itself seemed a little one-sided. Over and over again some guy called Batbird kept winning for a show or a movie called Indelibles. I haven't seen it, but it sure won a lot of awards.  Posted by Hello

AROUND THE WORLD IN EIGHTY PIECES! Tonight Jenny shakes the dust of Tremorton off her heels and explores the world... though not by choice. Our latest and not-so-greatest supervillain from the Cluster is known as Krackus and he sends Jenny on a whirlwind trip around the globe... one piece at a time. Also up tonight, Dancing With My Shell... a must-see for you folks who want to see Jenny and Sheldon finally get together... or not. Posted by Hello

SISTER SLEDGEHAMMER TONIGHT! In our fourth night in a row of brand new episodes, we present "Sister Sledgehammer," reuniting Jenny with her prototype sisters. Can they save her from the evil clutches of the Cluster?!? Then it's time for a nightmare of a sleepover as XJ9 bunks down with the Crust cousins. I may never sleep again! Posted by Hello

TEEN TEAM TONIGHT! Anybody remember this guy? I posted pictures of the Teen Team character designs months and months ago and tonight they are finally on. As Rob mentioned, the show has been on 10 or 15 minutes late the last two nights, so be sure to add a little time to your VCR/Tivo/Eyeballs so you don't miss one action-packed minute! Posted by Hello

Oops They Did It Again!

As I'm sure many of you noticed, the new show did not premiere at 6 last night. I hope you didn't all turn off the TV in a fit of uncontrollable rage because it started at 6:15. Everybody, including yours truly, had no clue that this would happen. If you've watched the U-Pick program before you're aware that they show things starting at wierd times but you'd think that when they promote something for 6 that they would put it on at 6.

I hope that at least some of you stuck around and saw the first episode. If not they will all repeat on Saturday, or so I'm told. Be aware that similiar shenanigans may happen througout the rest of the week. Please be patient and, hopefully, Teenage Robot should play before we all have to go to sleep.

TIFF AS A PATRIOT - Fan Art by CDB. Unlike those of us on the show who can't use the characters to promote our favorite team, political party, or alternate lifestyle, you fans can do whatever you want with them. Hooray for freedom! (By the way, there is a rumor that all FIVE new episodes will be repeated in a block on Saturday the 29th if you want to record them all on one tape... but you didn't hear it from me.)

FIRST PITCH OF SEASON THREE. Today is the first storyboard pitch of a Season Three episode (not including the amazingly exciting one hour special). It's tentatively titled "There's No Place Like Home School" and I'll let you guess what it's about. Above is a single drawing from the hundreds in the rough storyboard, the first stage in the pitching process. Posted by Hello

FAN ART SCREENSAVER! We got such a strong response to the Snafu fan art last week that we were only too happy to post another image that he sent in to us. (Besides, you guys are too good at trivia.) Posted by Hello

TEENAGE ROBLOG TRIVIA!!!!!!! Okay, while I'm thrilled at the number of responses we got to our first trivia question, I obviously underestimated this crowd by making the question far too easy. Hopefully today's multi-part question will raise the bar a bit. In the episode "Grid Iron Glory," what number does Jenny wear on her football "uniform?" What numbers does Jenny call before the ball is hiked in the Week 2 game? What is the final score of the Championship game against Poly Tech? And for a bonus point, what is the name of the "Gator-Aid" style drink on the sidelines? Posted by Hello

WHAT ABOUT US?!? Sure, everyone loves Jenny. And Brad, Tuck, and Sheldon each have their own fan clubs. Even Wakeman has her followers. But who stands up and cheers for the background characters? Who pays tribute to the assorted extras? Who loves the stock kids?!?! Posted by Hello

SO YOU'VE GOT SOME FAN ART... A lot of people have submitted fan art to this site and a lot of people have written in wanting to submit fan art. We love to see what you guys are doing so please keep sending it in. A few hints though. If you can save your images as a .jpg or a .bmp that would help a lot. I haven't had any luck saving the .png files at all, so I can't post them on the blog. And most importantly, keep drawing! Posted by Hello

HOLIDAY'S OVER!! NOW GET BACK TO WORK!!! Yes, our brief respite from the grueling hours of animation slavery are over and it's back to the grindstone... or drawing table... or desktop computer for all of us. You fans may recognize this picture as Tremorton High Vice Principal Razinsky, although he is sporting a dramatic colorization by Leticia for an upcoming second season episode. Scary! Posted by Hello
