This is gonna be so exciting! And yes, I really, really hope it is available online.
The weird thing is, about a year ago, I wondered what it would be like if Cars was made into a TV show like Lilo & Stitch. Guess this is the closes thing to my dream being realised.
I can’t wait!
I’m so excited! Rescue Squad Mater here we come!
Anyhow about the online availability, I’ve spoken to someone about that and the person said that they are working on it, so don’t expect them to be online in a flash, but eventually, yes.
By the way, here’s a little video preview: lineboil.com/2008/10/car-toons-p … on-disney/
M-O: It’ll be on Toon Disney, and will air (according to Mr Navone) after “Haunted Mansion, Phantom of the Megaplex and Scream Team”. It will also come to the Disney Channel and ABC Family at a later date.
martini: Wow, thanks for the link! I loved the [spoil]Miata twins got a cameo! And it looks like combine harvesters and bulldozers make up the male bovines of the Cars world![/spoil]
elikrotupos: That’s a great link to the interview too! Nice to get to know who were behind the production. Their portfolio websites are also interesting to look at. 1:33 to 1:40 was a barrel of laughs! Does anyone know whose sketch was at 1:18 to 1:25? They last showed Mr Gibbs drawing on the tablet, but I think the animatics was done by a different person, if I recall correctly from my memories of The Art of Cars (I borrowed it from the library, cos’ I couldn’t find it in stores). Whether it was Mr Gibbs or our mystery man/woman, I remember liking that person’s style of drawing cars.
Not really into Cars, but it’s still exciting to see Pixar spread their wings and release something into the TV domain. Hopefully some of these will make their way onto YouTube soon. Good to see they are going to be influenced by Warner Bros. cartoons, too. The Darth Mater picture on Victor Navone’s blog looks really funny, too.
