More importantly, WHEN will it be shown on the web?

Bird Skipper, the deleted scene.

Does that mean you are animating on 1's, or is it that you are running it at 24 fps but animating it on 2's?

The pilot should be around 8 minutes (hopefully no longer).

My first intention was to put it online: newgrounds, youtube & myspace. To get as many people to see it as possible and, for the flash version on newgrounds, have a clickable link for potential investors that will direct them to a page with more info about what the show is about etc.

But I may take it to an agent first (I have one picked out already), and see what their advice is.. which may not be to not put it online; as they may want to shop it around for me.

Either way, you all will see it. It just may not be the second it is finished.

I'll take this as "when will it be done?" I don't have an answer to that right now because of the current full time job I have that eats up all of my time and energy. But I CAN say that BEFORE this job happened, I was getting shit done super fast and it seemed like no more than 10 months (just animation, no sound or color).

Does that mean you are animating on 1's, or is it that you are running it at 24 fps but animating it on 2's?

Bird Skipper was 12 fps but my pilot is on 24 fps. All future Up Chuks will be 30 fps. And as for animating on 1's or 2's - that all depends on the timing of what is going on in the animation. Some frames will be held once, some twice, some three times etc. It just really all depends on what sort of timing I am trying to achieve.

I think it's really fucked up of you to not include Count Duckula. He deserves recognition.

You should put all your cartoons on youtube. It's a good way to develop a fanbase.
