I remember perusing through the paltry animated series offerings in the 90's on my television and just pining for a cartoon that one could enjoy as an adult as well as a child. Where had all of those great animated shows disappeared to? Pink Panther, Rocky and Bullwinkle, The Flinstones......ahhhhh,..but lo and behold,.....what do my tear filled eyes see? It's The Angry Beavers!!! It came at a time when cartoon programming needed it! It came when everyone needed it! It was a fantastic series that was created by a fantastic creative talent; Mitch Schauer.
One glance at Mitch's body of work in the creative entertainment industry and you will discover a resume that features a wide array of illustration work, comic books, graphic novels and full featured animation with all of the big name studios! With a focus on "family friendly entertainment", we need Mitch; heck, the animation industry needs Mitch!
If it were possible, I could see a little bit of Mitch Schauer in one of his recent character creations, RIP MD. He would look past the scary personna of a monster and dig a bit deeper to understand the psyche of the beast. It's called "heart" and Mitch has a large one at that! You can see it in every one of his projects!
Join me as I interview the incredible Mitch Schauer as he discusses his career, his passion for animation and the career tributaries taken to get to where he is today.

One look at the comic strip, "Pipe the Pelican", and I was hooked! With a vibe that dates back to the 30's and 40's, the style, the line art and the design aspects all point to an earlier time in cartooning history. There is a certain innocence and sense of boundless imagination in Jason Lethcoe's story and it is difficult to break away from it once you enter into Pipe's world.
There's so much more to Jason than his wonderful comic strip too. One glance at his resume that features a wide array of illustration work, children's books and full featured animation and you know that you are dealing with an industry pro.
Join me as I interview the amazing talent, Jason Lethcoe as he discusses his career, his passion for cartooning and the unconventional path taken to get to where he is today.
