    1. Important to understand that work on this or that series could be over, but one (or even two) more seasons of the show have yet to hit the air/internet This happens, believe it or not. Conglomerates usually stop making a show when they feel they have enough episodes produced.

    Also, King Julien aired its final episodes last month, with Puss in Boots airing its final season later this month. Most of the KJ crew is working on the new Kung Fu Panda series.

      Delete
    3. I wasn't aware that FOP moved to Canada. You sure you're not confusing that with Bravest Warriors, which is a different Frederator series? Production on that shifted to Nelvana in Toronto.

      @Unknown Steve probably wouldn't know the answer to questions like that. His sources worked on the production side of things, not the distribution or marketing arms.

      My personal guess is that Adventure Time is ending soon, so they feel promotions are better spent toward shows with a future. Its viewership is probably older than they'd like for a daytime show, as well, so you don't see reruns often.

      Delete
  24. Ok guys (by the way I work on the main channel) I’m going to discuss the drama for adventure times treatment on Cartoon Network as you guys know adventure time haven’t been getting noticed on the main channel but just know there will be a one month event for adventure times final episode I don’t know when but Cartoon Network will air nothing but adventure time so anyways the reason why adventure time haven’t been getting promoted on the Network is because most of the fans are now online now so their general thinking no one watches it anymore Cartoon Network have been listening to your concerns and death threats they have been receiving because of a certain group of people who enjoy a show on the network as well

  28. I have three questions:

    1. Is "The Stikbot Movie" an actual movie that Warner Animation Group is making? If so, why haven't we heard anything about it yet?

    2. Is "Scooby Doo and The Red Ghost" that fully animated Scooby Doo movie that Warner Animation Group is making? Which is why you called it "Scoob"? And if that is the case, why isn't under "Warner Animation Group"?

    3. I know that Warner Brothers is trying to make Space Jam 2 a priority, but are they really still working on ACME? The last time I heard ANY news from it was in 2014.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I've changed/updated some of the WAG listings. Warner Animation Group (as of a year ago) had locations on Warners main lot, in Hollywood, also on the Warner ranch (formerly the Columbia Ranch on Hollywood Way.) They do pre-production work and things fall in and out, depending on development progress.

      As for the Scooby Doo slate, understand there are LOTS of Scoob projects at any moment in time, both small-screen and large screen Scoobys. And I just use the generic "Scooby" to indicate yet another Great Dane project. A seasoned veteran I know is dismayed by all the Scooby projects (he hates working on them, see above) but what you gonna do? Work is work.

  54. To sum up about what's in work and what's not: if the studio hasn't put out a press release on this or that production, then it's not a total certainty (and sometimes not even then.) But if the CREW isn't sure, then nobody else can b sure either, especially Yours Truly.

  55. Just like DreamWorks Dragons, my guess is they are bringing back Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness for another season with a new name.

    1. Might also be aimed at a different age group than before. That sometimes happens.

    2. It's not. It's an entirely new show that the showrunner has described as being more serialized and more in tone with the movies than the previous series was.

  56. It seems like Disney may have put this press release out just to squash some rumours: https://www.awn.com/news/marvels-spider-man-returns-2018-disney-xd I say that because they felt the need to name drop every single one of their North American productions and how "proud" they are of their animation.

    Now, of course there's nothing that says the episodes they're talking about aren't the ones already in the can waiting to air.

  57. Hello there! Just wanted to ask you if it's true that Buddy Thunderstruck is getting a second season? Since you listed as "ongoing", althougth the creator said that they have no clue if the second season is going to be made or not

  59. I would like to submit a correction.

    Rikke Asbjoern, co-creator of Pinky Malinky, said the follwing on their Instagram:
    "No, it's not cancelled, we are currently working on season 2 and waiting for it to premiere. Hopefully there will be some news about that pretty soon"

    Pinky Malinky's status should be changed to "ongoing, renewed for a second season ahead of premiere".

  60. Just wanted to ask do you have any idea who is animating the Marvel Rising Secret Warriors?

    Cause in the press release there was no mention it was produced by Marvel Animation Studio.

    1. Marvel Animation Studios in Glendale California is going through changes; staff isn't sure when new production will be picking up, or if employees will continue to have jobs.

      Marvel produces shows elsewhere, but I'm not sure if the series you mention is being done stateside or someplace else. (Just now I'm super busy and not checking notifications much, but perhaps womebody from Marvel will answer.

    2. Welcome.

      I'm told that Marvel Animation, Glendale has a lot of things on hold because they will be streaming many/most of its shows in the future and is now reviewing what it intends to do, production-wise. (Understand that this is scuttlebutt, and NOT established fact.)

    3. In your first "Work Around Town" post, you mentioned that one of your informants said Infinity Train is a miniseries. Have you heard anything on whether this is still the case?

      Delete
    4. I'm not aware of changes, but I haven't been paying close attention. Most likely, if the min-series is a hit, more episodes will follow.

    5. Thanks for replying! Much appreciated! :) Don't wanna sound like a bother, but I've another question: any word on when the 3 shows for Bite Size will make their debut?

  62. Did The Mr. Peabody and Sherman Show is ongoing?
    I want to cancelled Rocky and Bullwinkle Reboot

  63. My understanding is that "Mr. Peabody and Sherman" capped out the number of episodes. If I find that more are now in work, I will update.

  64. Are you doing another work around town?

  65. You have any info on the The Owl House show announced by Disney the other day?

    ReplyDelete
  66. "Owl House" has just been announced, so they they're working on Season One. This usually means thirteen half hours or twenty-six eleven-minute segments. Disney TV Animation's usual custom is to spend a year testing new series ideas before a launch. This series has no doubt been focused grouped six ways to Sunday.

    1. "Amphibia" is another new Disney TVA series, also in Season One. Same parameters apply to this one as "Owl House": much testing and focus-group work, and then thirteen-half-hours. If the series hits, then a Second Season gets announced lickety-split.

      Delete
  67. It looks you were right about Marvel Animation cause some people have announced their departure and some moving on to other projects.

  68. Is Cn planning something for adventure times finale and also do you know when it comes out

  69. Why Bunsen is a Beast is listed as "ongoing" if The show ended production with only one season, as Butch Hartman has left Nickelodeon on last February? Pinky Malinky IS really ended if The show hasnt premiered yet?

    1. This is an old post (note the date). I'm not updating it day-to-day. Some moths from now, I will write a new post about work in Los Angeles. But not yet.

    2. Hey speaking of which, do you have a time frame of when we can expect the next post? :)

  70. Duck tales is my favorite animation series I had watch in my childhood. But some time I missed some episodes. But now I can Watch online Full episodes and I really love to watch the series once again.

  71. A bit late as I have just discovered your blog and had to find out about my current favorite show, Welcome to The Wayne, is the series going to be airing season 2 in N.America?

    1. Thanks for coming aboard. I'll be posting a new "Work Around Town" in June, at which time your question should be answered). I get lots of questions about work, but at this stage I don't research and respond; just too much work.
