A Ghostbot blog.

What a better way to celebrate your extended July 4th weekend than by working exercising your hard-earned right to vote!


Our hibernating music video for Five Iron Frenzy has finally awakened. Channel Frederator just launched their 36th episode which includes one of the first official Ghostbot projects ever produced, "Wizard Needs Food Badly". We have a short clip of the music video available on our site but there's never been a proper forum for the whole shebang until now. Big thanks to Fred and the gang for providing a great showcase for animation that would never see the light of day otherwise. They also set it up so that you can show your support by voting and commenting on things you like (or don't like) about each short. Personally, I thrive on reading the comments. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. Unless you post negative comments...then I feel cold and dead inside...

Channel Frederator also featured an episode of my other hibernating show, Joe Paradise (way back in Episode 3) which I blogged about here.

(Thanks also to Cold, Hard Flash for the cool write up!)


Our pals, The Ciminos, are on the brink of stardom, thanks to their mini-pup, Bean. From her proud mom:
Out of 120,000 entries my little dog Bean has made it all the way to the top 6 finalists of the nationwide Old Navy Mascot contest and now it's up to you to help make her a star! From now until July 7th there is going to be online voting to decide which of the 6 lucky pups wins the grand prize and becomes the new star of all the Old Navy commercials.
You can vote once every day and be personally responsible for catapulting Bean into the affordable-and-fashionably-clothed hearts of millions! And I've made an exclusive deal with Sherrie that if Bean wins, Ghostbot will get 10% of Johnny's animation time. Since he's one of the fastest Flash animators we know, 10% of his time equals 200% more Ghostbot work!

You just can't lose, people.

Happy 4th!

Wow! This Five Iron Frenzy video takes me back. This is one of the FIRST Ghostbot jobs. Many nights were lost getting this video up and going.... It was totally worth it.

Thank you Channel Frederator for finally finding a good home for it!

I'm voting everyday. I've met the little mascot, and she is as cute as can be. I only hope she remembers me when she's famous.

Go Bean GO!

Five Iron rules! We cut some of our early Ghostbot teeth on that video for sure. It's great to finally see it presented in its entirety.

Come on people, vote for Bean! If Bean wins, we all win... 10% of Johnny's animation time is worth its weight in time-based gold.

i've gone through and voraciously consumed this blog and then went on to check out the content on your guys' website - both very, very wicked. between you and your cohorts, i'm floored by the high quality of your output. it's humbling.

it's a very nice coincidence to finally find out the fellas responsible for those 'e-surance' commercials as i was just wondering about those the other day - one of the commercials was on the teevee. awesome work, you guys. thanks for the comment, roque - i've now a new blog to visit to keep the fires lit under me!
