Help Launch an All-Cartoon Web Channel! UPDATED (x3)

UPDATE #3: Ten days to go, folks - Joe Murray's project is at 94% of his $16,800 goal. Jantze Studios (yours truly being director of animation) stands to be the production company for Frog in a Suit, and KaboingTV stands to drive a new revolution in animation. Even if you can't contribute to the Kickstarter campaign, please help spread the word! Do some blogging, linking, story writing... everyone get the word out about KaboingTV and Frog in a Suit!

Joe Murray of "Rocko's Modern Life" and "Camp Lazlow" is working on launching an all-cartoon web channel called, and you can become part of cartoon history! "How's that?" you may ask. The answer can be found at Murray's Kickstarter page.

“I’m trying to produce the first episodes without outside funding that comes with strings attached. It’s also my wish to have you the audience, plus fellow animators be my producers rather than funding sources that don’t love cartoons as much as you do.”

"Frog in a Suit", set to launch KaboingTV, will be funded by the Kickstarter effort, which as of 5.12.2010 stands at 55% of the goal with 24 days to go. UPDATE: I was going to wait a few days with an update, but in just a day Murray's project has gone from 55% to 61%. END UPDATE UPDATE 2: If you're part of helping reach this goal, you're awesome. Frog in a Suit and KaboingTV are that much closer today, with 73% of the goal reached and 19 days to go. Be part of the new cartoon resurgence! It's a proven* fact that cartoon lovers make better lovers, period. END UPDATE Backers of Joe's effort have several funding levels to choose from, ranging from $5 all the way to $10,000 or more.

“So look at your pledge also as a vote to have more episodes of Frog in a Suit, and to have a website that you can go to and depend on, to give you hilarious, quality driven, irreverent cartoons.”

Murray notes that once funding is complete it will be a matter of months to launch the site and begin pulling in enough traffic to woo advertisers and more sponsors.

*ok... "proven" is anecdotal and even somewhat hyperbolic but c'mon... it's true, for the most part. Except for this guy. Probably not true for him.
