This cartoon was a special going-away present to my friends on The Mike & Ben Show, which is why, if you weren’t on the show at the time, it probably doesn’t make a whole hell of a lot of sense.
I wrote this episode with my friend Myles, who was graduating UCLA and thus leaving the show, along with Ben, Thor, Sean and Price. Yes, it was a requirement of the show that every other person have an unusual name. Just ask Dagmar and Harp.
The episode used a lot of clips from old shows, woven (barely) into a fable which paralleled our creative struggle working on the show, and was actually pretty well-received. Which is more than I can say for what happened on youtube.
It’s also kind of a love letter to our long-lost friend Mike, if you think about it.
