Animation Anomaly Podcast Episode 2

Since last week’s podcast didn’t elicit any hate mail or death threats, there’s another one this week. Plenty of articles were worthy of inclusion and hopefully you find my gibbering not too ingratiating.

  • 00:00 – Why we’ll see even more Ice Age sequels [article link]
  • 06:30 – Animated films and the cult of self-esteem [article link]
  • 14:00 – How Disney clamps down on the unlicensed use of their characters on birthday cakes [article link]
  • 18:00 – Passive Female Characters and Strong Female Characters [link 1, link 2]
  • 22:00 – The A.V. Club interviews the head of Animation Domination High Definition [article link]

Please give me any feedback at all on how I did; the podcast is still a work in progress! 🙂

  • It sounds like all the name drop the guys at Fox ADHD are doing is because they read up so much on these succesful animators and wish to replicate their success, so in showing (whether on purpose on unconsciously) how much they know about these guys and what they are doing right, they too can and ought to have a similar success. But I don’t think it works that way

    I’m also probably one of the few, but I don’t care for Axe Cop. Exploiting a 5year old for the sake of watching what this imaginative 5year old has to say, to me is gimmicky. I’m far more curious on what an educated adult has to say, especially if they say it through a medium they are experts in.

  • I also thought the name dropping was pretty eye rolling especially when they kept harping on about how sincere and non-cynical their shows are like Adventure Time. In a block titled ADHD and High School USA being a flat out Archie parody I highly doubt that.
