‘Merely Meerkats’ Returning in 2020!

Friday, May 31st, 2019

Yes. You read correctly. After many failed attempts I am fairly confident that this time Merely Meerkats is returning for real in 2020. I have begun pre-production on a brand-new episode… That was written in 2011. Luckily it is still relevant because the story has to do with something that is very important to me. Though it is a comedy, there is also a lot of drama which is kind of a first. I am hoping people can relate to the tale as much as I can. I expect it to have a run time of about fifteen minutes which takes a while for one man to produce. So mark your calendars for 2020… There are some new kats coming to town!

13 Years Of FARToons

Wednesday, January 15th, 2014

FARToons Productions is about to turn 13 years old on February 1st. It has not been the most successful endeavor in history. It has had its ups and downs. Its good years and bad years. Its shitty cartoons and its okay cartoons. But through it all, it has survived with me. I want to thank everyone who has supported FARToons over the years. Maybe one day, long after I’m dead, it will get the recognition it deserves. If only for the reason that it dared to do something different. Please share this on your Facebook if you love FARToons.

Thanks to all the fans. You all helped spread hate across the planet. I hope FARToons will continue offending people for years to come.

Merely Meerkats Game Coming Soon!

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

Merely MeerkatsI have teamed up with Happy Badger Studio to create a Merely Meerkats app for the iPhone. It is a game where you play as Ferdy trying to catch alcohol. Just watch out for poop and diapers. Get Ferdy good and drunk to try and get the high score. Sounds fun, right? I hope so because my friend is working hard on it. I, however, am doing pretty much nothing. Good deal.

As far as The Wish Fish Family Episode #10 goes, I haven’t worked on it since February. I am just not happy with it. I don’t know if I will finish it or not. I have taken a break from animation. A terrible idea I know, but I am just burnt out since Merely Meerkats did not get into the New York Television Festival. I’m not saying it deserved to, but I still worked hard on it and it bums me out. So anyway, if you want Wish Fish #10 you are gonna have to demand it.
