Sketches, Stories and Other Stuff from Tom Ruegger
Animaniacs got their DVD's in 2006, but as far as I know, it has only two idiomes: English and Portuguese. ¿didn't it have an "international" DVD release?, the only "international" video release was in VHS format. or ¿are there animaniacs DVD's in English/Spanish?
Nice!Which skyline is that supposed to be? ^^
I have not had to time to check on this
was this one about WWII?
I think so
Good stuff, thanks for posting all of these!
I love these posters, and what were they painted with? Water colors? They have an awesome look to them. This movie sounds very interesting. Would this be connected to the Warner's making propaganda films during the forties? Oh, and one question I've been wondering is, did Wakko's wish recieve a bigger budget than usual due to it being a movie? Everything in it has a slightly enhanced production value about them. The orchestra in particular sounds fuller.
yes, bigger budget for WW. Bob Doucette worked mainly with color pencils in these roughs. I've added additional colors recently.
I want to talk about animation studios for animaniacs, TMS was one of them, and the most "prominent", because colors were bright, and characters eyes looked like "anime" because "lights" were "moving" in their eyes, and it looked like "HD", but I don't get it about TMS animation was replaced by Wang, both studios worked for the same episode sometimes, as for Startoons, it's one of my favorites,specially for Slappy squirrel segments, as far as I know it was the only american animation studios for animaniacs, , these studios worked for Tiny toons also, another thing I don't get is ¿where did you made the storyboards, scripts, etc,?, ¿at the WB studios, yeah the one with the Water tank? and ¿did WB studios (with the tank tower) had their own animation department for Tiny toons and Animaniacs? ¿why didn't WB provide their own animation studios?, and this is personal: I didn't like at all the freelance animators and Kennedy for Tiny toons, for me, is a relief Kennedy didn't work for animaniacs, OK, I hope you can make me clear about this.
JCWarner Bros Television Animation had its own studio in Sherman Oaks, and at that location we produced all aspects of the production EXCEPT for the animation and paint and camera -- those steps which were executed by our production partners like Startoons in Chicago, TMS in Japan, Akom in Korea, and Wang in Taipei. We recorded the dialog and sound-mixed the shows at Sound Castle in Glendale and later at Monterey Post in Burbank. We recorded the music at the Warner Bros. Sound Stages in Burbank. All stories, scripts, storyboards, models, color keys, layouts and backgrounds, painted background keys, exposure sheets, timing, and other steps of the process were started and completed at the Warner Bros. Animation studio in Sherman Oaks. Also, once we had the film in hand, we did the editing there.
thanks for the information, as for my opinion, and as I mentioned before, my favorite animations were from TMS, startoons and Wang in the order you see, and personally, I think it was good Kennedy animation studios didn't work for animaniacs I didn't like their animation style in Tiny Toons, ¿what do you think?, and my second question is ¿from what studio was your favorite animation style in the show?
Each overseas studio had strengths. On Tiny Toons, I suspect TMS hit it out of the park most often. As for Glen Kennedy, he's a great animator. The problem back then for Glen's group was volume and personnel. They were a small shop and the schedule was very demanding.
Where was Freelance at?(By the way, my favorite is TMS, too...)
