Rex the Runt & Seth MacFarlane's thesis Projects

Aardman's Rex the Runt is pretty friggin' awesome.  It has the same sort of vibe that The Simpsons has, but with an eccentric British touch.  Rex the Runt is brilliant; also is a funny kind of show.   One that will get me laughing, not the kind of belly laughter, but the kind of laughter that you get from watching Futurama, a sort of amusing humor.  Rex the Runt is shot on a flat
surface, kinda the way Stoopid Monkey is shot.  Rex, has been going on since the late '90s, also, it has some of the most seamless animation I've ever seen.

For a complete inventory of Rex the Runt, go to the Aardman dark side YouTube.
Just a little taste of Aardman's genius, Rex the Runt - Wendy's hot date.

Next, we'll take a look at Seth MacFarlane's (Family Guy, The Cleveland show, American Dad!) First project.  First, I would like to say, that this morning I said SMG will broaden it's horizons with 2D traditional animation.  That being said, please do not get offended that this is not Stop Motion.  "The Life of Larry" and "Larry & Steve" were created by MacFarlane in the late '90s.  "The Life of Larry" was MacFarlane's thesis film in 1995, while studying at the Rhode Island School of Design.  MacFarlane's Professor submitted "The Life of Larry" to Hanna-Barbera, where he was later hired.  Later that year, MacFarlane created a sequel to "The Life of Larry" with "Larry & Steve", where the main character was Larry's dog: Steve.  "The Life of Larry" was broadcast as one of Cartoon Network's World Premiere Toon's.

"The Life of Larry", which had the same wacky humor as MacFarlane's other projects.

"Larry & Steve".
