In the second episode of Cartoon Brew’s new podcast, we speak to Tony Cervone and Bill Haller, director and animation supervisor on Warner Bros.’s Scoob!, which was released on video-on-demand platforms on Friday.
The film is the first fully cg-animated installment in the Scooby-Doo franchise. In the podcast, Cervone and Haller explain how they met the challenge of porting the iconic Hanna-Barbera graphic style into an authentic cg universe.
It helped that they both had experience with the franchise. Cervone, a Warner Bros. veteran, has worked on a wide range of projects featuring new iterations of H-B and Looney Tunes characters; he was also the co-director of animation on Space Jam. Haller was a supervising animator on 2004’s Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, and his other credits include Hotel Transylvania and The Book of Life.
