Underfist Nomination

I wish I could keep coming up with new ways to say "thank you", but "どうもありがとう。" will have to do.

Underfist has gotten an Annie nomination for Best Animated Television Production Produced for Children this year! For those who don't know, the Annies are sort of like the Emmys for cartoons. It's the first "big" category we've ever been nominated for, so thanks again to the crew and the viewers for sticking with it!

Looks like some tough competition, but I'm honestly just happy that Underfist gets to crawl back out of the grave and show off its exquisite corpse one last time...

I just saw this on Cartoon Brew. I'm definitely pulling for it to win! Pitted against Avatar (which I personally don't really care for) and the newest Foster's movie, it is some close competition. I'll be rooting for you guys!

Congrats on the nomination!!

Now CN should have no hesitations in coming to you for more Underfist in the future -- this is viable proof that it was good. (Not that you need their approval to know your worth. You rock, sir!!)

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you to win!


PS - Hope your Turkey Day was awesome, yo! :)

cool!

I dont think awards are that important, but in this case would be a great "see, I told you this is good" to everyone (like if we didnt knew its good already).

who decides who wins? is there a producers poll or something?

Best of lucks!
let us know what happens.

if not dont feel bad, come on :)

Only if Underfist aired again, could I decide whether it was truly better than it's competition. It's a hard decision. I love ALL of the cartoon nominated in that category.

I may join ASIFA so I can vote. You have no competition. Whatever happens, I can bet that CN will be showing Underfist every Halloween for the next 100 yrs.

I was wondering...Can you post a storyboard YOU did from the Big Boogey Adventure?I hope I'm not bugging you too much about it but I wouldn't be able to ask C.H. Greenblatt on his blog cuz he blocked off the comments and never answers any questions.

Ps.If Underfist wins it'll probably get the sequal,Underfist vs. the Dinosaurs.I would love that because Jurassic Park 1 and I would love to see the characters fight again.Fighting and Chase scenes are what cheers me upm in a cartoon.So continue to say,"underfist,Yo!"

Big Boogey was boarded by a lot of people and it was before we went digital, so I chose not to keep the 1600 pages of storyboard in my house. That being said, if I run across anything I'll let you know...

How'd the pitch go if you already did it.I'm sure that if you did, it probably passed due to your wonderful imagination!

Ps.Does strict old C.H. say you can post the Chowder board.Not to be mean,but that guy just isn't that nice anymore.

"Tough Competition?" You sure? I suppose I'm biased. I'm not a fan of Foster's or Avatar and I've never heard of the other two.

That’s great news! Congratulations, I hope you win, I really do. (Does happy dance)
If only I got to see it, actually I haven’t watched the Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy for almost a year!
I live in Eastern Europe and Cartoon Network international (cartoonnetworkhq.net) isn’t showing it anymore, and they didn’t show "Underfist” ether.
This makes me sad :*(

Does it still air in the US?

Congrats on the nomination, hope it turns into a win. Hope you got your new pitch done too! I'm looking forward to it, whatever it is.

Also, if you don't mind, I have a couple of quick questions.. do you have an Xbox 360 or a Wii? Ever play online? I thought it would be cool to see your xbox avatar or your mii (or play Gears of War 2).

I found a Mandy mii that's about as close as you can get and in the game Animal Crossing you can design pretty good Mandy clothes... Soooo here's my girlfriend's character, dressed up to look like Mandy: http://www.baddream.org/images/mandy-ac.jpg

Happy Holidays!

this is incredible, it doesn't surprise me if Cartoon Network decides more about the fate of Undersist

Hey I'm a fan of 'The Grim Adventure of Billy and Mandy' all the way from Malaysia. I watched the 'Underfist' movie when it premiered(in Malaysia) during halloween. It's sad to know that there will be no new seasons for this show cause it's one of the best cartoon I've ever watched!

Anyhow, congratulations!

Hey, I made this. Just wanted to show y'all, since no-one got to see Mandy smile in "My fair Mandy"...figured this'd be the best place to show yous.

Hope you win the Annie tomorrow, so CN can bring you and Underfist back to Comic-Con. Don`t want to jinx it, so "Break a "Scythe".
