WATCH IT NOW
The new series, Once Upon, features Penna as “MysteryGuitOldMan,” a character introduced earlier this month, who tells the story of the origins of his little brother, “Teeny Joe,” who was featured in a June 2010 MGM video. The series is full of all the creative effects we’ve come to expect from MGM, including an infant that sprouts from a plant bulb delivered by an exotic bird.
“YouTube is all about trying new things and constantly re-inventing yourself,” Penna told Tubefilter. “Plus, it’s a great way to get immediate, honest feedback on your work. So, I’m excited to be trying out this 5-episode miniseries on my channel.”
Once Upon is MysteryGuitarMan‘s first web series—though Penna humbly noted, “Can it be called a “web series” if it doesn’t have Felicia Day in it?” LOL.
The first episode of Once Upon drops today, with new eps coming out every Tuesday until December 20th.
