Introduction - The Learning Curve
This book chronicles the efforts of a group of people I am fortunate enough to be involved with while we create a children’s cartoon series of 26 twenty-two-minute episodes entitled the Mister Pig Mysteries.
There are no punches pulled: you will know every trial and tribulation that the group went through, from arguing about one of the main character’s hairdo, another character’s gender, the main character’s shape, what to promise in the demo’s voice-over, plus many other backstage events that the creators of an animated series never mention as guests on an evening talk show… which rarely happens, because those shows usually prefer to interview the movie stars doing the voices for the animated characters.
