The installments of GO! Cartoons are all helmed by different creators and contain their own narratives. Taken together, they are the entrants in an incubator project that will ultimately see one of them developed into a full series to be released on the Cartoon Hangover channel.
Up first in the GO! Cartoons canon is The Summoning, in which a witch and her feline companion attempt to make magic. Elyse Castro created and wrote it, and Natasha Allegri — the woman behind the popular Cartoon Hangover series Bee & PuppyCat — served as director.
GO! Cartoons was first announced way back in 2014, when Frederator put forth a call for submissions from aspiring animators. From that group, 12 creators earned funding from Sony and a spot in the incubator’s lineup. In our initial coverage of the partnership, we noted that several prominent Frederator productions, including The Fairly OddParents and Adventure Time, began as incubator projects.
“Sony Pictures Animation has been the perfect partner in finding these creators and realizing their unique visions,” said Frederator Networks CEO Fred Seibert in a press release. “Frederator is dedicated to finding new voices for the world to fall in love with.”
The second episode of GO! Cartoons will arrive on November 21, two weeks after the series’ premiere. Look for it on the Cartoon Hangover YouTube channel, which has close to two million subscribers.
