Production notes / ChangesEdit

Teapot was the creation of voice artist Greg Eagles, known for his work on The Grim Reaper on The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy. He teamed up with Flash animator Dahveed Kologdy-Nagy to pitch the idea to Teapot and it got the green-light. Greg Eagles wrote the concept, script music score, songs and voice direction, while Dahveed did the character and art designs. Unlike most of Dahveed's projects, this short was oversea animated traditionally at Wang Film instead of Flash, even though he made the character models in Flash before their clean up models came. It was storyboarded by Alex Almaguer, who also worked on Billy & Mandy, which may be the reason why both shows look a bit similar. Greg himself did many of the voices in the short, including the star. Robert Alvarez directed the short. Nickelodeon did not pick the series up but a Teapot! animatic opening sequence was made and a failed Kickstarter / Indiegogo for a proposed iPad game entitled "Teapot! Rap it Up!" were created. The series still has not been picked up.

TriviaEdit

  • Aliki Theofilopolous did Yaki's demo voice for the storyboard phase before she got Andre to do the voice.

Production notes / ChangesEdit

This series was created and developed by animation historian Jerry Beck which got picked for Random! Cartoons. The short was directed by Rich Arons. Bill Burnett, creator of Dr. Froyd's Funny Farm, score the music for this short. The animation style is a homage to Gene Deitch's limited style. Originally, it was suppose to be a Terrytoon's Sidney the Elephant revival short, but due to copyright issues, Jerry made his own original character based on Sidney.

TriviaEdit

  • The art style is based on Gene Deitch's work since Jerry Beck is friends with him.
  • Zantar is an obvious parody of Tarzan.
