It's Official: The Drinky Crow Show is ON
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Tony Millionairetelevision 20 Feb 2008 12:54 PM

As expected for awhile, Adult Swim on Cartoon Network has placed an initial order for 10 episodes of "The Drinky Crow Show," based on Tony Millionaire's acclaimed "Maakies" comic strip. The newest Maakies book, The Maakies With the Wrinkled Knees, will hit stores next month.

A pilot episode of the proposed series was developed by Millionaire and animation producer Eric Kaplan last year. It aired as part of a competition which pitted dozens of pilots against each other, with the fans voting online for their favorites. The Drinky Crow Show was far and away the most popular new pilot, leading to the order for more episodes, which are tentatively slated to begin airing late this year or early next.

We'll have more news on this next week, including an exclusive Flog interview with Millionaire about the episodes that are just going into production.  

In the meantime, here's a new Millionaire interview with the good folks at CBR. 

 

 

Classic Bill Gaines TV clip
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under television 17 Jan 2008 8:14 AM
 
This Classic Television Showbiz clip is fantastic, featuring To Tell the Truth with guest William M. Gaines, publisher of EC Comics and MAD Magazine. It's pretty funny how the contestants clearly refuse to believe that a big ol' hippie like Gaines could possibly be a Madison Ave. publishing mogul.

DRINKY CROW SHOW pilot to air again at 11:15pm on Tuesday night, January 1, 2008, on Cartoon Network [adult swim]

Drinky Crow Pilot airs again Jan. 1
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Tony Millionairetelevision 19 Dec 2007 8:04 AM


The Drinky Crow Show pilot is re-running on Jan. 1 at 11:15pm on the Cartoon Network. Not New Year's Eve but the night after. If you missed it the first time around, don't let that happen again, it's a riot. And looks so much better on the boob tube than the clips you've possibly seen on YouTube. Help us boost those ratings and ensure that the CN orders a slew of new episodes for 2008!

In the meantime, Drinky Crow Christmas!



What is "Ghost World?"
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under televisionDaniel Clowes 6 Dec 2007 8:27 AM


That was the unexpected $2000 'question' in yesterday's Double Jeopardy category of "Graphic Novels on Film." This a day after Spiegelman was name-checked in a category about New York City. What is going on here? The 'answer' was something like "In this film, Enid and Rebecca are best friends entering adulthood" or something like that (I honestly don't remember, it was too surreal, I was discombobulated). Sadly, none of the contestants responded. Other questions in the category were about 300, The Road to Perdition, The Crow, and From Hell.

Okay, not exactly. But his cover of yesterday's New York Observer was!





What is an "Ink Stud"?
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under televisionlife imitates comics 5 Dec 2007 9:01 AM
I did a doubletake last night at home as my wife and I were hanging out and JEOPARDY was on the television, and I heard Alex Trebek give an answer in a category about New York City. It was something to the effect of: "This neighborhood is home to artists Maya Lin and Art Spiegelman."* I thought I'd hallucinated it, but my wife heard it, too. First the Simpsons, now Jeopardy. What's next? Oprah? A run for the Senate? A spot in "The Surreal Life"? You go, Artie!

* By the way, the answer is "SoHo."
