What's This Now?

Cartoons 101 is a Youtube series detailing the history of the medium of animation through stories and video essays. It has been featured on sites like The A.V. Club and San Francisco's NPR/PBS affiliate KQED and endorsed by popular Youtubers like Movies With Mikey and Danny O'Dwyer from Noclip.

I've covered topics such as the impact Steven Spielberg has had on animationhow Disney hired Robin Williams to play the Genie, then how he quit, then how they got him back, and the time Ren & Stimpy creator John K wrote a mean-spirited review of Animaniacs under a fake name. I also like to keep my viewers up to date of the current goings on in animation by covering more recent cartoons like the new season of Samurai JackLego BatmanYour Name, and especially DuckTales.

Secret Backer-Only Blog?

I do a lot of cool stuff! That includes making this show, living in Los Angeles, going to theme parks, being a voice over artist, drawing, developing and pitching an animated series, watching and researching lots of cartoons, reading comics, and a bunch of other things and I like to document that stuff. If you donate above the $3 you get access to the blog where I talk about all of those things! It's like my secret Twitter.

Exclusive Podcast?

The Cartoons 101 Patreon Podcast! The show takes many different forms. It started with Conversation Genesis Evangelion and continued into Satoshi Konversations! I also take detours into different themed episodes and interviews with animation creators and luminaries like Bill Oakley (The Simpsons, Mission Hill, Disenchantment), Scott Gairdner (Moonbeam City, Podcast: the Ride), and Evan Dorkin (Dork!, Welcome to Eltingville, Beasts of Burden).

After that it's up to you what the show covers next! It's a series of series about series. Maybe the next one will be an American show? Maybe another anime? Maybe a series of films by a creator like Hayao Miayzaki or Ralph Bakshi? Maybe more EVA stuff like the Rebuild movies or Anno's other stuff like Shin Godzilla? Who knows! And you can only get it by donating to this Patreon!

What else do you make?

Obviously I'm a big Disney nerd and a stinkin' millennial so I make the Twiter @Disney80s90s! It's where I post all kinds of cool stuff from the Disney cmpany during the 80's and 90's like bad TV specials, behind the scenes materials, and live blogging directly from Disneyland! My personal Twitter is @MrMattJay.

A second Patreon exclusive podcast!
In addition to the main podcast, I'll launch a second full weekly show. It may not be explicitly animation based, but will be within my pop culture / performance / comedy / general dorkery wheelhouse.
