Good to go!
We're over it. Frederator internets and all our blogs are stable on tumblr over at Frederator.com. Our blog archive is still public back to 2005 (older posts yet are here.) Thanks for your patience. (If you'd like a little further explanation about the whys and wherefores of our move, just click.)



A little instability.
I know we've threatened this before, but there's going to be a little instability in all of our breathtaking cartoon news over the next week or so while we transition Frederator Blogs over to the tumblr platform. We'll fill you in on the details (and problems) when the process is ...



Butch! Cosmo! Wanda! Timmy!
It's hard to believe, but it was 10 years ago tonight at 8:30ET (which was a Friday in 2001) that I told my oldest son he could stay up late to watch a new Frederator production ("But I don't like anything on Nickelodeon!" I got my wish and he soon ...



Next New Networks acquired!
“Next New Networks was built with the idea that next generation video was worth championing, the problem was they needed someone to love them.” --founding CEO Herb Scannell Today --incredibly, coincidentally-- four years to the day it was originally announced, the company I founded (my co-founders were Emil Rensing, Herb Scannell, ...



“Q. Do you think audiences are ready to see grown-up stories told through animation again?”
"A. I’m dying for the PG-13 animated movies and the R-animated movies. Come on, let’s go. The Ralph Bakshi stuff. “Pirates,” in a way, was a PG-13 animated movie. It’s very Harryhausen [Ray Harryhausen, the legendary special-effects creator]. But I think that ‘70s animation was really fantastic. Imagine what we could do now." --Gore ...



tumblr founder David Karp, our bud.
I joined tumblr at the beginning, before then really, since founder David Karp was our high school intern in 2001 and then set up his developer business at Frederator/NY in 2006. And, Adventure Time fans have followed us over there. Obviously, they've ...



“Robert Christgau, Rock n’ Roll Animal”
"Christgau, writing in The [Village] Voice, it just seemed like this weekly bulletin from the front."  -Anthony DeCurtis, from Paul Lovelace's 1999 documentary "Robert Christgau, Rock n' Roll Animal" Robert Christgau is the kind of inspiring critic and editor (primarily with New York's The Village Voice) I wish we had in ...



Dreams and cartoons?
I'm going out on a limb here,  trying to make a connection between the creation of Martin Luther King, Jr's solemn "I have a dream!" speech, and our art of creating cartoons, but I mean no disrespect. Just the opposite, it's about my great admiration for MLK's imagination and its ...



“I have a dream!” Martin Luther King, Jr.
"I have a dream!" Martin Luther King, Jr., August 28, 1963: I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation. Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, ...



That was the year that was.
Wow! For some Friends of Frederator, there was no bigger 2010 news than the reissue of the Chevy Camaro, but our extended family had a banner year at work too. Cartoon hits, original internet hits, hits hits hits everywhere. Fanboy from fredseibert on Vimeo. At Frederator, 2010 actually started in ...
