Saturday Mourning Cartoons is a weekly podcast that revisits, reviews, and ridicules some of the world's weirdest animated series. It's presented by Sean Paul Ellis and Dave Trumbore, with support from Melanie Harker, Allison Keene, Tony Lazzeroni, Rory Lucey, and Patrons like YOU!

We have over 165 episodes from almost 3 years of podcasting for you to enjoy already, but we want to bring our fans better quality podcasts, video broadcasts, and original artwork. We need your help to achieve these goals as we continue to share our love for nostalgia and terrible cartoons!

So Where Does Your Money Go?

Well, after Patreon takes roughly 10% off the top for allowing us to use their incredible service:

  • 65% of every dollar goes toward improving the show. That's a general blanket statement that covers purchases for new equipment like cameras, editing software, proper lighting setups, etc.; payment to artists, producers, and other content creators; funding for travel (lodging, transportation, food, etc.) to conventions and live shows; and ultimately launching our own production studio!

  • 35% of every dollar goes to Uncle Sam. This is a conservative number, but not by much. This money will go into a savings account until tax time comes a callin'. Any additional/accrued funds will either go into the production budget or to a charity to be determined later. 

100% of pledges, shares, and positive word of mouth will be 100% appreciated by us!
