Calling All Webmasters!!

Do you run a MLAATR fan site? IF so, when's the last time you posted new material? Would you like to see "Escape from Cluster Prime" on Video and DVD?

RECENT activity on fan sites is one of the things that might convince Nick that there is a market for the TR TV Movie. No guarantees, off course, but anything that shows a strong fan base will help our chances. So if you haven't been posting, do it for Jenny!

When Janice recieves the "Rough" Storyboard, it is her job transform it into a polished, scaled version. This requires a steady hand, an accurate eye, and a lot of patience. Check out the Before and After pictures to get the full effect!

Warped View

Another quick sketch from Bernie Petterson:

Jenny Gets an Extreme Makeover?

Just kidding! But, Alex Kirwan did come up with a new look for the show. It won't be implemented but, isn't is fun to consider? This post-it was probably the result of Alex doodling in a meeting. Even Art Directors daydream!

Art Deco Brit & Tiff by: Bernie Petterson

Here's a quick sketch by Bernie Petterson, a Teenage Robot Storyboard Artist. Don't Brit and Tiff look regal? Maybe this is a Halloween costume idea. If you had your druthers, what would Jenny's Halloween costume be?

Art Show!

Nickelodeon will be hosting an art show for Teenage Robot's exemplary artists, ColorStylist, Leticia Lacy and Lead Background Designer, Joseph Holt this Friday. As you can see by their invitation, these two are boundlessly imaginative artists. Come and share the wine and hors d' oeuvres as you peruse the works of two of Nickelodeon's most valued painters.

The Problem of Cartoon Continuity in TV Cartoons

Here at MLAATR we are discouraged from creating long story arcs that carry through several cartoons. The reason? Because we never know what order things are going to air. You will all soon see an example of this on your very own television. The episodes that will start showing this week are, for the most part, Season 2 shows. "Escape from Cluster Prime" was done at the start of Season 3. I made the foolish assumption that Nick was going to air all of Second Season WAAAAYYY before the movie ever played. So in these "new" episodes you will see Vexus and the rest of the Cluster as if the movie never happened. Which, when we made these episodes, it hadn't.


Nickelodeon's Fall 2005 issue of Nicktoons will feature an all new Teenage Robot comic strip! You'll be treated to eight full color action packed pages starring Jenny and rival aliens that are more than meets the eye. Like them? They'll be showing up soon in "Eye of the Beholder."

It's great to see your enthusiasm for nominating the MLaaTR voice talent. I try to sit in on a few minutes of the recording sessions each week and they are a very talented group of actors. Often they do several voices for each show and its amazing how they can change their voices to fit the character, emotion, and changing directions from Rob. The picture above is from last year, but I've always liked it. Seeing Jenny 40 feet high is pretty cool.

FAN ART!!! How can Sheldon spurn Jenny so close to her world premiere of all new episodes? (Did you like that transition? I barely saw it coming.) Yes, we are a mere five days away from the 3:00 daily stripping of TR. I can't wait. I haven't even seen all of these episodes and I work here!!! Posted by Picasa
