3D Girl Battle Cry

3D Girl Battle Cry by Rachel Cleary & Checker Phil in Windows Media:

Checker Phil calls Angel Yau

The viewers always ask why Angel doesn't call them back when they ask her out. Checker Phil decided to stage a demonstration in order to instruct the late night audience in reality, using the illusion of improv.
Checker Phil calls Angel Yau on the imaginary improv phone.
Luckily, Angel remembered to bring her's with her today.
"Angel Yau! Yo yo yo! What's up? Checker Phil representing!"
"Oh, hang on, let me change hands."
"OK Phil, what were you saying?"
Phil daringly invites Angel out for a dinner of lobster brains.

Angel gives her carefully considered answer.
It's not looking good for Phil.
"Hey-- it is what it is!"

3D Girl HO!

I'm so stoked! Rachel Cleary and I are meeting at Checker Phil's place tomorrow to record lines for 5 new 3D Girl Adventures cartoons!
This is the project I currently enjoy doing the most, and I find my mind wandering to it when I'm supposed to be doing other things. I've loved 3D since I was a kid. One of the only things from my childhood I still have is my older sister's View-Master reel collection, which I still look at. I'd probably still make 3D movies even if I lost my binocular vision-- the first 3D feature was made by Arch Obeler, who only had one working eye!

The Mighty B reviewed by Peter Bernard

The Mighty B (above) is about Amy Poehler doing her girl scout character from the UCB, imagining that she can be a superhero with a man's body.

This show has actually I guess been on the air since last year but I've never seen it before, so I'm just writing about it now.

I was over helping Horus Cat pack (he's moving into a luxury Trump building soon), and Horus' 4-year-old human sister Cait was watching tv. Suddenly The Mighty B came on, co-created by Amy Poehler. Cait started bouncing up and down, saying, "THIS show is on! I love THIS show!" She didn't react like that to any other program all day.

Basically, this is a female Ren and Stimpy meets Dexter's Laboratory. One of the stories I saw was storyboarded by Lynne Naylor from Ren and Stimpy and Bill Wray from Ren and Stimpy is one of the background artists. They do everything in tribute to R&S or Dexter on the show in terms of the visuals and the timing and the sight gags. The voices are good-- besides Amy, The Tonight Show's Andy Richter is in it playing Amy's brother (perhaps a tribute to when Amy would play Andy's sister on the old Conan O'Brien show?) and Matt Besser from the UCB is on hand to play a myriad of supporting roles. I don't immediately recognize the other cast members, maybe Angel knows who they are if they're UCB people.

I think it's kind of sick that all these shows hire John K's assistants but none of them just freaking hire John K!!! But this one is better than Spongebob, at least. And since the main demo for the show is 4-year-old girls like Cait, it's her review that matters more than mine. Cait LOVES this show!
