Frederator Studios Kicking off the singular Frederator experience required quite a character, and thanks to one --illustrator/designer extraordinaire Arlen Schumer-- we got the other --our singular company robot, the Fredbot. When Arlen gave us the gift of a company birth notice, he crossbred some severely bushy eyebrows, Gigantor's nose, and our fascination with the influence of modern poster innovator Frank Kozik. Master artist Patrick Raske provided the color and a Michigan silkscreen printer was engaged. Frederator Studios, with assistant Stephanie Stephens, came to be in North Hollywood on January 6, 1997, with our first cartoons released in 1998. 1997 Arlen Schumer: illustration & design

Frederator New Year's Posters The last 30 years haven't been kind to commercial posters, broadcasting and the internet have made them virtually extinct. But art poster series are alive and well with a vibrant following and Frederator likes being part of that select group with our (sometimes) regularly released New Year's posters.

New Year's 2002 Frederator's expantion to a New York office around the turn of the century seemed like a perfect moment to inagurate our New Year's poster program. And our expanded personnel roster (for building out media on the internet) suggested the perfect execution. Patrick Raske pulled off this digital take on an old school letterpress poster, often associated with boxing, circuses, and old rock'n'roll and country music concerts. 2002 Patrick Raske: art direction, design & production Digital 13" x 20"

New Year's 2003 "This poster was my personal greeting card to the animation community. I met tons of artists, producers and executives because of it. It really opened a ton of doors for a young cartoonista like myself. "And as far as the actual design, it was able to showcase all my favorite Mexican things: Lucha Libre, Dia de los Muertos, Mariachis, Catholic iconography, Posada typography and hot Mexican women. It was an incredible honor to have been asked to design it. "Gracias Fred! "Jorge Gutierrez" 2003 Jorge R. Gutierrez: illustration & design

New Year's 2006 Artist Frank Olinsky and Frederator founder Fred Seibert have been friends since they met on a dirt hill in Fred's backyard in October 1955. They've grown up to collaborate hundreds of times, notably on the iconic MTV logo. When Frank wasn't sure he could meet our three week deadline, but three days later this appeared in our email boxes. A sculpture of styrofoam, plastic cups, straws, and cardboard, it also marks the first time our robot was christened, in Frank's simple, unique way, the "Fredbot." And to complete a circle, production and printing contractor Will Dunnigan was the third childhood neighbor who lived in between Fred and Frank. 2006 Frank Olinsky: sculpture, art direction & design

New Year's 2007 Channel Frederator, the world's first cartoon podcast, debuted in November 2005 and quickly we met thousands of new, talented animators from around the world. To celebrate, we inaugurated the Channel Frederator Awards in Hollywood, where lucky winners would receive their very own "Freddie" statues. World class animation artist and designer Frank Rocco agreed to design the awesome Freddie sculpture and program cover illustration. We loved it so much that program designers Adams-Morioka adapted the image into our annual New Year's poster. 2007 Frank Rocco: computer generated illustration

New Year's 2008 2008 was a big Frederator year, the 10th anniversary of the release of our first cartoons. Finally, our tongue in cheek slogan, "Original cartoons since 1998," would have some meaning behind the humor. Naturally, we turned to our closest design partners of the decade, Sean Adams and Noreen Morioka, to help memorialize in art direction. In their careful, but never too serious, manner, they oversaw every detail of the soda/beer can illustration right through to the gorgeous silkscreen production. It's been seen framed in more offices than any of our other posters. 2008 Adams-Morioka: art direction, design, illustration & production

Hatch Show Print & Frederator The 1996 national board meeting of the American Institute of Graphic Arts was held in Nashville, Tennessee, down the street from the storied Hatch Show Print, the country music home of wood block printing. Fred Seibert fell in love with the place and its chief designer and archivist Jim Sherraden. Frederator has had Hatch Show design and print over a dozen of its posters in the last 13 years, usually to celebrate the end of a season of cartoon production.

Oh Yeah! Cartoons What better way to celebrate our second big idea incubator (notable for the first appearances of Butch Hartman's The Fairly Oddparents and Bill Burnett's & Larry Huber's ChalkZone) but to fit 39 modern cartoon titles on a limited edition poster with old fashioned wood block typography? For our first collaboration we asked Hatch Show for their 'classic' look, and it became the perfect remembrance for all of our animation creators to sign at the wrap party. And here's where Frederator introduced the slogan "Original Cartoons since 1998," the catch being it actually was 1998. We're all about original talent and their original ideas, and we wanted to have a little fun. They're cartoons, after all, yes? 1998 Hatch Show Print: design & production

Random! Cartoons By the end of the first decade of the 21st century our cartoon incubators seem to have taken on a legendary life of their own, having spawned over a dozen series. Random! Cartoons started life as Oh Yeah! Cartoons, Season 4, but took on its own identity, fitting for a new century. Random's already spawned to monster hits, Eric Robles' Fanboy & Chum Chum and Pendleton Ward's Adventure Time, and with them a new cartoon vocabulary, both visually and comedically. 2007 Hatch Show Print: design & production

Channel Frederator Awards
Leslie Cabarga started as a world class professional before he was out of high school, and his illustrations, logos, fonts, and books have made him a legend. We were lucky to meet him during our brief relationship with Kitchen Sink Press, and turned to him when it came time to design the 2nd Channel Frederator Awards in 2008. Next New Networks' Rachel Garcia thought the New York City location and Freddie statue screamed for a Fritz Lang Metropolis theme. Leslie's morhping of the two is an all time classic.

Channel Frederator & Next New Networks Frank Olinsky was commissioned by Next New Networks (Channel Frederator's distributor) to design a series of limited edition posters for advertisers and friends of the company. The only limitation was that all the images had to be created with his hands, a slam dunk for a resourceful artist like Frank. He referred back to the Fredbot he created for our 2006 New Year's poster, and laid it out in an homage to a famous Elvis Presley singles collection. But it wasn't 'hand' enough, so Frank took a marker and retraced all the robots. We loved the mess. 2009 Frank Olinsky: design & illustration

Poster comp illustrated by Alex Kirwan

My Life as a Teenage Robot "For our first movie-length special we wanted to create a stylish opening title sequence that fit our pulp-y, sci-fi title. I thought that it would be neat if all the visuals for the titles evoked the sensationalistic ballyhoo and graphics of 1950's sci-fi promotional material. Then, at the end of the sequence we could pull the camera back to reveal that all the elements formed a giant movie poster. Shawn and Joseph Holt worked hard to help me complete all the individual pieces used in the animation, and the whole thing came together rather nicely. As a side effect, we ended up with an already completed poster design, which we printed up as a comiccon giveaway." -Alex Kirwan 2005 Alex Kirwan , Joseph Holt, Shawn Holt: illustration & design

Adventure Time fan art posters We were shocked when Adventure Time spontaneously inspired hundreds of fan art tributes five years before the series debuted on Cartoon Network in early 2010 (the millions of internet video views for the original short must have helped). One of the show's production assistants, artist Joseph Game, reached out to his companions at The Autumn Society (www.the autumnsociety.com) to create faux posters and say a few words for us.

Adventure Time with Finn & Jake Dave Perillo draws inspiration for his work from many of the following sources: 1950's sci-fi movies, Charles Schultz, Jim Flora, Ray Harryhausen, Roy Lichtenstein, Jim Henson, Hanna-Barbera, The Twilight Zone, Alfred Hitchcock and character advertising icons. Dave currently resides in the 'burbs of Philly, works as an illustrator, believes that bowling is the sport of kings and a bag of Swedish Fish is a seafood dinner. "I thought it be cool to do a comic book inspired cover for Adventure Time, the kind of cover you might see in a digest size sitting next to some Archie comics on a rack in five n' dime." 2010 Dave Perillo: illustration & design

Drinking and Drawing Events One night, internet animator Dan Meth had a great idea. He opened a tab at a bar on the Lower East Side of Manhattan with a light box, a Sharpie, and hundreds of index cards. He was going to drink beer and draw until he had enough for a film. "Drinking and Drawing" became the most experimental cartoon in his hit Frederator series The Meth Minute 39. It also gave Fred Seibert a 'Eureka' moment. Animators need to get together more often, so why not set up an actual animation event? Starting at the 2007 Platform Animation Festival, and irregularly in cities across America, Frederator has sponsored a night of jamming artists. 100 intrepid souls draw animation sequences on eight to fifteen cards and hand off their last drawing to the next jammer. The cards are scanned, edited, and scored and there's a cartoon! Results at drinkinganddrawing.org and Channel Frederator.

Drinking and Drawing Lee Rubenstein was Dan Meth's producer on his first bar night and co-produced our initial New York events. For the first public event he designed our poster giveaway too. And the Frederator D+D logo too. 2008 Lee Rubinstein: illustration & design

What A Cartoon!/World Premiere Toons In 1995 BF (Before Frederator), Fred Seibert was the President of Hanna-Barbera Cartoons, where he launched his first innovative cartoon shorts incubator, What A Cartoon! on Cartoon Network. He felt that cartoons and, maybe more importantly, their creators had been unjustly ignored for too long, and dedicated the studio to publicizing these shorts in every way possible. Great posters were the most visible way he could find. Modernizing the movie studio one sheets that accompanied classic theatrical cartoons, studio creative director Bill Burnett adapted the original art from the films into the modern rock poster styles introduced in the early 1990s.

Dexter's Laboratory What A Cartoon! Genndy Tartakovsky is one of the most admired directors in cartoons today. But, the Dexter's Laboratory cartoon short was his first commercial film and became the first original series (and a big hit, at that) on Cartoon Network. 1995 Genndy Tartakovsky: creator Jesse Stagg & Kelly Wheeler: art direction & design Bill Burnett: Creative Director Offset 17" x 22"
