FAN ART! "Master Jenny, the last of the Jedi Knights, faces a final showdown with the Sith Lord known as Darth Vexus (who suffers heavy injuries after her last battle with the fallen Jedi Masters Brad, Sheldon, the teenage Padawan Tuck and the wisest of them all, Master Nora Wakeman) after dispatching a large army of Clustroopers!" Thanks Glen!

BEFORE TEENAGE ROBOT. Did you guys know that Teenage Robot was not Rob's first show? Rob did several shorts for "Oh Yeah" Cartoons and his favorite was "Mina and the Count." It really looked like "Mina" was going to be his first full-fledged series and that's where he put his hopes and energies. But for many different reasons, one of Rob's other shorts, "Teenage Robot," was the one that went the distance. Click the audio clip above to hear Rob talk about this in a short recording from last week's ASIFA MLAATR presentation.

ONLY THREE PICTURES OF ASIFA EVENT! Okay, so here's the real story. I wasn't able to personally attend the ASIFA event, so I asked one of our P.A.'s to snap some pictures for me. To her credit, she did take the two pictures below, but the rest of the roll featured shots of herself and her friends and somebody's baby. This is just one sad example. It's a shame really.

TIME SQUAD OVERLAP. I don't know if any of you are fans of the show "Time Squad," but many of us here at MLaaTR worked on that show as well. Rob Renzetti, Alex Kirwan, Ani (our production manager), Brandon (our storyboard artist), Joseph (our BG designer), Chris (our color stylist), and Shawn (our clean-up artist) all worked together on Time Squad. I was watching one the other day and noticed a robot character called XJ5! Coincidence? You be the judge.

RECORDING TODAY. Tuesday is the day we normally do voice recording and today is no exception. We are recording "I Fought the Law" which pits Jenny against a particularly vengeful Skyway Patrol officer. Pictured below is one of our amazing voice actors... but which one?!?!?

LEGION OF EVIL!!! Today we had a storyboard pitch for a new third season episode tentatively entitled "Legion of Evil." The idea for this episode came from the gang of villains in the old 70's Superfriends cartoons called the Legion of Doom. (Their headquarters, which looks like Darth Vader's helmet, is in the picture.) Can you guess which five villains from Jenny's rogue's gallery have gotten together to form the sinister Legion of Evil???

NO SHIPPING TODAY! For the first Friday in months, we don't have rush around to ship things to Korea today and the mood around the Teenage Robot offices is ebullient! (Check your dictionary if you're not sure of that last word. Nick execs don't want you to challenge you with any four-syllable words in our shows, but this isn't in a show, now is it?)
