Just thought I'd give a little update. can't talk about much. But the new GIJoe animation is looking sweeeeet. the backgrounds I've been working on has left me with something moving in my pants...wait, thats my cell set to vibrate, never mind...but it is amazing.

Director, Joaquim Dos Santos and his team are really putting their hearts into this. you can tell they all love the property.

I for one am really looking forward to this.

I have no release date info or spoilers. sorry.

be on the look out

YO JOE!!!

I mentioned this in a post of mine, last week, but I guess you passed it.

Here a link to test footage of G.I. Joe. It does look really cool.
G.I. Joe Test Footage

I met the director, Joaquim Dos Santos, at Warner Bros. years ago, he had presented an updated version of the Thundercats that Warners was considering, making new series. Of the many versions the came after his, Joaquim's was the best. (I worked on the original series at Rankin/Bass) In fact, I think he single-handedly got the ball rolling at WB to revive the Thundercats.

Joaquim will certainly do justice to G.I. Joe. I look forward to seein his take.

well, the word on the street is that they are 5-10 minute shorts that will eventually be collected onto a DVD...but how they initially release the shorts is a mystery. maybe they will make it for the internet.

Yowza! That's some great stuff. I'd imagine that the show would be timed to coincide with the release of Stephen Sommers GIJOE movie, either leading up to it [ala GOTHAM KNIGHTS] or afterward.

Probably because the syndication market is so regulated by media watchdogs that new action cartoons can't find a reasonable time slot anymore. If infomercials, sleazy talk shows, tabloid trash, and old sitcoms are all that local stations have to offer, it's no wonder animation has migrated to other venues.

A more mature themed G.I. Joe series would fit Spike TV programing. They aired the Afro Samurai, which was very hardcore, anime, action, sex, foul language, blood swordplay. It worth picking up the Director's Cut DVD set.

Here's my blog post about it.
Dragonfly Views - Afro Samurai

Here's the link to the site:
Afro Samurai Series

We need more good action/adventure show for late night viewing, beside Marvel and DC stuff.

I agree.

In addition, Titmouse Inc, the same producers of Afro Samarui are doing GIJoe as well. so far they are the only animation house that I know in the U.S.
producing mature animation content like this.

That's great animation!

Of course it seems so far removed from the original look and feel of the show it's pretty much a total re-invention. That's not bad just different. I love the new Battlestar Galactica.

I'm curious does anyone know how these guys compare budget wise to a Korean or Japanese studios?

This would fit into Adult Swim programming perfectly.

Cheers

The original 'G.I. Joe' series was last seen on cartoon network, and bringing this new series to [adult swim] would be a great move since they don't have much in the way of good action cartoons.
