Happy Halloween!

I'm mostly done with the Chowder board. Man it's been a long time since I've had to handle someone else's characters. I'd forgotten how hard that is. Not that Chowder's "hard", just that I'm out of practice.

Anyway, with that done I can finally clean my house and enjoy all the nothing that's going on this Halloween. The silverfish aren't gonna be happy.

Here's the last of the Underfist for a while (though I'll try and hit up the requests after the weekend - like blank board paper and the Skarr fight sequence). Thanks again to everyone on the crew who helped make Underfist great, and for everyone at CN who fought to keep this thing alive and get it on TV. And, of course, to the people who watched it!

Here are some color panels I did from the board that I used as a guide for the show's palette. Most of the subtle beauty in the actual BGs comes from Joe Binggeli's gorgeous, colorful work and his "mysterious shadows".

I'm not sure if it's too late to ask, but I was wondering if you could put up a good picture of Skarr in his Halloween costume from Underfist. He's looked fantastic and I'd really like to get a good look at him. :D

I understand if it's too late though.

Thank you! <3

Whoo! Underfist finally released in Australia. I felt sort of ashamed knowing what the characters looked like, or what to expect next. That's fandom for you.

Hi everyone! I live in mexico, so I just saw (by a miracle cause I didnt know) Underfist, and twice this morning, and it was soooooo awesome, Im so amazed and happy, lame retarded loser heros, I totally relate :P

what I liked the most was how well the characters developed, it was brilliant to change the timeline. also I liked the change in the drawings style, it looked really fresh, and theres so many characters that you just stuck watching it.

and everything looked so genuine, like fred fredburguer and jeff singing with their voices, or everyone being so stupid, or the constant continuity of the plot from billy and mandy, or the "billy ammo"; was so cool.

after watching I went online cause I thought the series was already on, but ohhhhhh... come on... bussiness people, well, you know what they are, at least the ones Im talking about... (and wtf is up with the ratings? like they really know how many people was watching, those numbers are so stupid, and even so guess who won, hehe).

so do it for the sake of fun!!! thats where the honor is. just to cheer you up Im gonna spell me name... wait... sorry, I cant :P

PS- since I live in mexico and almost everyone is so poor, Im also very old and live with mother, but now I know what to saaaaaaaay, hehehe...

You guys are gonna freak when i tell ya this!If you want to own Underfist then go to and type in "totally tooned in".Click on the second piece on the list and it'll take you there try clicking on "cartoon cartoons" if you don't see the picture of Chowder.Go downward until you see the list of available Billy and Mandy episodes and you'll see it says Underfist part 1 and 2.Click on either or both of them and download them to your computer!

Ps.This is not spamming.

Thanks for the fan art, Andrea! Love that you got the "tiny" version of the Jumbo Candy Monster in there!

Thanks again for watching, everyone!

well, if were talking about downloads, I did it at the pirate bay:

its like 500mb and it took me like 6 hours to dl, but its a perfect download, and I love it cause the normal tv "eats" the sides of the screen, and in the computer you get the widescreen, and besides, nothing beats like watching on the computer.

changing subject, why does "wishbones" skull had a 13? wasnt he done or he got cursed again? maybe the "I wish they never found you" thing brought it some bad luck.

"I love everything and everyone, specially you..." jajajajajajaja...

Underfist was great! I think they should make an Underfist tv series. I always wanted a Fred Fredburger series, and those other characters would make it good too.
