Some popular animated programs are being recognized for the first time this year.
The cast of the animated series “Bob’s Burgers,” currently in its fifth season on FOX, has figured out how to do something rare: make money from the live performance of animation.
Last night was a night of cartoon firsts at the 2014 Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards as “Bob’s Burgers” and “Simpsons” voice actor Harry Shearer each won an Emmy Award for the first time.
The nominations for the 66th annual Primetime Emmy Awards were announced this morning, and the big animation news isn’t who was nominated, but who wasn’t: “The Simpsons”
While Fox’s Sunday night lineup was dubbed Animation Domination in May 2005, it did not officially become all-animated until 2010. Now, the announcement of their fall 2014 schedule reveals that the cartoons will be ceding some of their Sunday night territory to live-action comedies “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and “Mulaney,” which will be taking over the 8:30 and 9:30 time slots, respectively.
“Family Guy” producer Alex Carter explains the backstory of the gag.
Cartoon Brew reader Skifi writes, “One of the worst drawn things ever makes fun of a cute show for being badly drawn.”
