Successful Animated TV pitches

Postby Masato » Tue Apr 04, 2017 12:41 am

These are called 'Beatboards'

Here are some that supposedly got greenlighting for Cartoon Network

I don't know if any of them became real shows or are in development or what, but I thought it was interesting where the bar is for creating pitches that get picked up.

some are pretty funny

- I don`t get adult cartoon`s. They all try to be over the top, with swearing and end being unfunny.

Woody Woodpecker is still funny today. Can`t say that the cartoons at adult swin where funny even when they were launched.
- I rent this space for advertising

Don't be selfish, preserve this world for the next generations.

kevin spencer being an obvious excellent exception.

^^ LOL very sharp :D

I made a pitch for an animated comedy series once, all revolving around conspiracy theories, starring a known celebrity I am acquainted with that will remain un-named by his own request.

It was brilliant, we were going to start pitching but the celebrity chickened out at the end and thought it was way too risky, thought we'd get murdered for sure lol his wife was scared :D I had episode synopses and everything but he was a paranoid mofo. Said he had already been threatened before etc

So sad, it would have been so much fun. I can't imagine what networks or studios would have ever bought it though, the celeb was maybe right you can't talk about that stuff on TV, even if you make it wacky/silly and comedic.
