Yep i'm on another Forum making Spree again, basically, who are your favorite writers, directors &/or Producers in cartoons & anime!?
As for me well, when it comes to Domestic Animation i'm a fan off....
MerryWeather Williams A name that until recently has been pretty much unknown and is still underappriciated. Merryweather williams has been in the animation business since the mid 90's William's first notable work was her job as a Story Editor on Spongebob Squarpants from 1999-2003 *you know back when it was still funny* she was also a consultant on the Mothers day episode of Rugrats. In recent times, Williams has become one of the main Story Editors on Cartoon Network's smash hit Adventure Time. She also wrote 4 episodes for Season 2 of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, 2 of which (Putting Your Hoof Down, and Dragon Quest) are among some of my favorite episodes of the series so far. Sufficed to say she's a talented woman who defiantly deserves more love & praise then she gets
Craig McCraken: We all know about craig, creator of PowerPuff Girls and Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. Along with Gennedy Taratstokovy, he helped make Cartoon Network what it is today, if it weren't for all the hit toons he made, they would still be showing old Hanna-Barbara cartoons 24/7 XD. Oh and he was also a writer for Two Stupid Dogs & Dexter's Laboratory.
Genndy Tartakovsky Creator of Dexter's Laboratory, Samurai Jack, and Sym-Bionic Titan, Genndy is also one of the most prominant modern animation writers & directors! He also directed & produced the original Star Wars: Clone Wars mini-series that came out on CN between episodes II & III.
Lauren Faust: Wife of Craig McCraken, and friend of Genndy, over the years Lauren not only worked on all the shows they created, but also helped out with theatrical films such as The Iron Giant, Cats Don't Dance, & Quest For Camelot. And of course as we all know she is the woman responsible for the current smash hit series My Little Pony: Friendship is magic, after being hired by Hasbro to re-create the franchise. Nowadays she's trying to get her indie projcet Galaxy Girls off the ground!
M.A. Larson: One of the current Head Writers for My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. Over the years he's also worked on other popular toons like Nick's Angry Beavers, and Foster's And he also wrote the Gravity Falls episode "Double Dipper" .
