I'm a Geek


I got into animation because I'm a cartoon geek. Not the Disney Nine Old Men sort of geek but a Voltron, Glow Friends, Robotech, Ant and the Aadvark, Denver the Last Dinosaur, Mr. T and the T Force, Rocket Robin Hood, Barbapapa, Dr. Snuggles, Simon's Underground Railroad, The Littles, Force Five, Visionairies, Tiger Sharks, Belle and Sabiastian, G-Force, Puff the Magic Dragon, Bionic Six, Wizar of Oz, Hercules, Foofur, Getalong Gang, My Pet Monster, The Shmoo, Inhumaniods, Blue Falcon, Rubik the Amazing Cube, Simon in the Land of the Chalk Drawings, The Little Prince kind of geek. Only later did I figure out the finer points of the industry especially in feature animation. Still, I have a soft spot for crappy tv stuff.
