He-Hog the Atomic Pig should've been picked up!
He's a really interesting character!

I love this character j.e. We pitched and drew boards out the ass and they broke my heart every time.

CaveMatt said...

Man, how many Spumco cartoons have we beem missing out on?

Jim Smith said...

cavematt man, there are maybe 4 or 5 storyboards of Jimmy, He-Hog, and such, plus the Weekend Pussy Hunt was boarded but never finished.

Kali Fontecchio said...

Yay! He-Hog! I went to that one comic book store across the street from the Safari Inn- and I saw a cel you did for sale! I wish I could buy it!!!

CartoonSteve said...

I recall a tv interview with John K, demonstrating animation (on an Amiga?) of what I think was the next scene: Hehog repeatedly punching this guys ass.

I also remember there being babes on the Spumco staff. (what else is new)
can't remember what it was from but I probably still have it on tape.

He-Hog rocks. I hope you can eventually do something with the porcine superhero. He'd probably be an appealing character in CGI if someone insisted on that instead of traditional animation.

So many good ideas, so few people with clue to greenlight them...sigh...

Hey Jim, these last posts are truly amazing!! I love He-Hog, it's such a promising character. I can't believe that nobody picked up this show for all these years.
Please post more of the unknown Spumco stuff. Do you have any artwork from Mighty Mouse days? I made a post about "Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures" several weeks ago at Classic Cartoons blog. Take a look HERE
Do you know who designed the girls at the beginning of "Mighty's Benefit Plan"? Was it Lynne Naylor, or John?

Jim Smith said...

There is very little mighty Mouse art around here. I have a few xerox copies of storyboards and some model sheet copies. I'll post whatever I have. I just found a box of Beany & Cecil stuff, finished layouts, etc.
