Kappa Mikey premiered on Nickelodeon on August 20th. It'll be aired every Sunday at 11am. There's a video billboard in Times Square advertising the show and I couldn't help but drag Ryan there to see it for ourselves! The best location to see the ad is to stand in front of Virgin Megastore and look up toward MTV/Viacom building.
Kappa Mikey pins!
By the way, the other Animation Collective show we're working on is coming out soon. Stay tuned for "Ellen's Acres." This very cute program will premiere on October 16th at Cartoon Network.

It's hot in Thailand. Always.
You can find at least one stray dog per city block...no exaggeration. If you missed a dog on one street, walk to the next and you'll find TWO fighting each other.
Happy Thai New Year! It's a tradition to sprinkle water on each other for good luck. Over the generations, this lovely act of kindness became warped into a week-long water battle. The modern holiday consists of people piling into the back of a pickup with a giant barrel of water and some buckets. Their mission: to soak dry people (and to make wet people wetter). You don't have a truck? That's ok! Grab a Super Soaker and become a water-wailing foot soldier. To push the game even further, people have discovered that if you create a flour and water mixture, you can shoot white, pasty crap from your gun and mark people with white blotches.
Don't jump, Poo Bear! Thailand's not THAT bad!
There are certain times that a photo opportunity begs you to shoot. This is one of my favorite images of the trip.

These gentlemen are resting at a WWII memorial site. Many soldiers were killed while trying to build the bridge (seen in the distance) during the war. Tourists are allowed to cross the bridge, but at their own risk. There are two thin strips for you to walk on...and when you pass people, you have to take extra effort to keep your balance.
This zoo is insane. You can feed deer, nuzzle giraffes, run free with monkeys, and even scratch the back of a freakin' rhino! It's like an exotic petting zoo. Here I'm being attacked by an ostrich that craves Adidas.
Thai Fawn and Thai Ronald thank you for viewing our photos. Lah gohn.
