The Drinky Crow Show

There appears to be a whole bunch of The Drinky Crow Show that you can watch right now on adultswim.com. Note to self!

I just noticed that the clip reel at Mirari Films has some previews of upcoming Drinky Crow Show episodes and it looks like they're just going to get better. (Also shows a little of the Buddy Bradley animation they did.)

Also, if you don't have cable I understand that each week they stream the shows on the Adult Swim Website.

The Drinky Crow Show
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Tony Millionaire 10 Nov 2008 8:43 PM

Jacob beat me to the punch on the scoop, but here's the full skinny on what might make me break down and get expanded cable again. I just got a sneak peek at the season premiere and it's every bit as hilarious as the pilot, but yet seemed even more visually refined. It also has an extended cameo by the Flight of the Conchords dudes, Bret and Jemaine. Lay-deeeez and gentlemen...

  

The Drinky Crow Show Premieres on Adult Swim in November
Animated Series Based on Tony Millionaire's Award-Winning Comic Strip Maakies

Based on Tony Millionaire's award-wining comic-strip Maakies, The Drinky Crow Show is a new original series slated to debut on Adult Swim on Sunday, Nov. 23, at 12:15 a.m. (ET/PT).  The animated comedy stars Drinky, a suicidal crow with a drinking problem, and Gabby, a depraved monkey.  Both are crew members aboard the SS Maakies, and together they go on a number of misadventures usually involving drunkenness, violence, and mayhem.

  

From executive producers Tony Millionaire and Eric Kaplan, The Drinky Crow Show originally aired in May 2007 as part of Adult Swim's "Night of 1,000 Pilots" and quickly became a viewer favorite.  Millionaire is a cartoonist, illustrator, and author, best known for his series of comic books Sock Monkey and his popular weekly comic strip Maakies, for which he has earned multiple Harvey and Eisner awards.  Kaplan has written and produced for a number of television shows, including The Late Show with David Letterman, Malcolm in the Middle, Futurama, Andy Richter Controls the Universe, and HBO's Flight of the Conchords.  Kaplan is currently co-executive producer for the CBS show The Big Bang Theory.

  

 

Ten episodes are currently in production at Kaplan's production studio, Mirari Films.  

  

Tony Millionaire is a cartoonist, illustrator, and author who is perhaps best know for his popular weekly comic strip, Maakies, and his series of comic books, Sock Monkey.  

Eric Kaplan has written for a number of television shows, including The Late Show with David Letterman, Malcolm in the Middle, Futurama, and Andy Richter Controls the Universe.  

The series theme song is performed by They Might Be Giants.

Be sure to look for DRINKY CROW'S MAAKIES TREASURY, the next Maakies book, collecting the last five years of Maakies into one whopping hardcover, hitting stores in April 2009. And of course, there are all of these existing gems.



Drinky Crow Show Nov 23rd.

Maakies fans, let us unite to make Tony Millionaire rich! We all know that comics don't pay well but cartoons do: Tell everyone to watch the premiere of the official Drinky Crow Show series on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim programming. It debuts in just two weeks, so open a beer and hit those message boards!

To make it easier for you, here are some ad banner thingies to post around. Tony will appreciate it, I assure you.

By the way, I suspect that 12:15 am on Sunday actually means Saturday night. Sunday at 12:15 means Sunday night. Monday morning if you prefer.

Things I Learned from Tom Spurgeon This Week
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Tony MillionaireRobert CrumbRick AltergottJim BlanchardHumbugHarvey KurtzmanDennis the MenaceDash ShawBob Levin 23 Oct 2008 9:45 AM

• Dash Shaw and Tony Millionaire are amongst the the official selections from which the the Festival International de la BD Angouleme main prizes will be drawn from at January's festival. That is very cool.

• Joey Anuff has justified the Internet's existence.

• Charles Crumb, who passed away 14 years ago, is gone but not forgotten

• Rudy Ray Moore is not so far removed from the realm of this blog that it would be inappropriate to lament his passing here. R.I.P., R.R.M. A tip of the fur bucket to Rick Altergott and Jim Blanchard, who first introduced me to Petey Wheatstraw: The Devil's Son-In-Law.

• Dennis the Menace cartoonist Marcus Hamilton is a thankful man

• Bob Levin's blog is always worth reading.
