Insight into animation

Here’s an example of the usefulness and coolness of the internet.  In this post you’ll get a chance to see an animated TV promo and the storyboards that helped create it.

The head writer of season 5/6 of Ed Edd ‘n’ Eddy showed me this the other day.  It’s a promo that features “dates” of the numerous cartoon characters featured on Cartoon Network, this one is Ed taking Daphne from Scooby Doo out on a date.  They aired a slightly different version in which Ed didn’t slap Daphne around, even though Ed is just being clumsy old Ed.  Also featured in the promo is storyboard artist Scott Diggs Underwood as Scoot, the fast food worker.

So here’s a quick glimpse at the storyboard, followed by the promo.

Scott did the storyboards for the promo, which he’s shared on his site – check out the rest of the storyboards, and the rest of his site here.
