Hey El Moochadores! Check out a small piece of what may be (or have been…) of a new cartoon of Nerdcore rapper MC Chris! Here’s what MC Chris had to say about getting the cartoon made on his Youtube page:
the mc chris cartoon has been a dream of mine since i released my first album in 2001. that’s 12 years of dreams! after being turned down by my alma mater Adult Swim, where I starred in and helped animate shows like Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Sealab 2021 and The Brak Show, I went to my fan base and asked them for the dough via kickstarter.com.
Well in a month and a half we raised the money we needed and were able to go into production with Titmouse Animation (Venture Brothers, Super Jail, Black Dynamite, Metalocalypse, Afro Samurai, GI Joe Resolute) We finished the sound with JC Richardson (Archer) and made a trailer that we put up on You Tube. We were then able to go into development with a different network, and pilot script was written with Super Jail and Home Movies scribe Janine DiTullio.
Unfortunately or fortunately, depending upon how you look at it, in spite of signing a six episode contract, the show was recently dropped. But the good news is: now it’s available to whomever is interested!
I’ve got 200,000 fans that have been waiting for this cartoon since I first premiered on Adult Swim and now you can you have that big chunk of viewership with a pretty bow on top. If interested please contact me at email@example.com and I will get back to you before you’re even done writing the email. Thanks for watching. Thanks for the support and here’s to many many episodes of the mc chris cartoon.
the majority of the art was done by nate bellegarde (nowhere men)
the animation was done by Titmouse Animation
the music was done by Andrew Futral
the sound was done by JC Richardson at Magick Lantern
the cast includes:
Drone – Neil Casey (writer for SNL)
Captain – Anthony Atamanuik (writer for 30 rock)
Tim Chandler – John Gemberling (fat guy stuck in internet)
mc chris – Chris Ward
Zombies – the fans
Remember this is just a pitch so the animation isn’t done, it’s only half of the pilot script and there are numerous things that will feel incomplete. The final version will look much different, have different characters, different dialogue, but this is the gist.
Okay, so at the very least we get this small bit, for now. I’m a fan of MC Chris and Nerdcore so I’m kind of hoping the internet does its job and we see this on more websites and blogs. Y’know, gather the troops, show some support type stuff. Anyways, check out the animation and follow the links back to check out more of Chris’s work.
