The Superfantastics - Tonight Tonite 
11th-Sep-2007 04:00 pm

I directed this video (and drew all the characters) for my friends The Superfantastics.

Most of you will recognize the inspiration for this - Steph (the drummer) even went so far as to contact Paul Fierlinger, the creator of the original "Teeny Little Super Guy" shorts. Not only did he give his blessing, but he also said that the final product brought back a lot of good memories. I just had an awesome time working on this.

I saw this the other day. Fucking amazing work Mike, between you and Jeddrie there's a video production house waiting to be born. Bravo!

I'd love to get a production company going that made no-budget (but entertaining) music videos.

Also, don't hate.

I am working hard to stop hating and start celebrating.

Dude, that's so awesome! I love it! Mind if I repost?

You sure can. And thank you!

It's super-dope! There's merchandising potential here too. Great work.

We've already discussed the merchandising. It would involve craziness.

Wow,
Mike that was a fantastic piece of work! I loved it :)
Also very cool that Paul Fierlinger liked it as well.

Congrats!

Yeah, he was a really sweet guy and even sent Steph pieces of an animated feature that's he's working on. It was awesome.

Hey, that was awesome!

I looked up Teeny Little Super Guy on wikipedia, and was surprised it didn't begin until 82! I guess it's not a childhood memory.

I've got a couple of friends who are either too young or too old to remember this. They just don't get my generation, man.

That was always my favorite part of Sesame Street!
Your video is seriously so cute! Genius!

Thanks Shawna!

That is amazing! I love it so much...incredible work, Mike!

I had almost forgotten about the Teeny Little Super Guy...
14th-Sep-2007 01:01 pm (UTC)
And Brenna! I miss you guys.

Mike this is such an amazing video (found it via Chynna). Everything about it just completely warms my heart. It just blew me away and left me feeling good about life. Your character designs are everything I'd ever hope to achieve with drawing! Each character so simple and yet so distinct. Every subtle movement is just pure genius! The dances are on par with the Peanuts christmas special!! And the fact that Paul Fierlinger was into it just makes it all that much sweeter. Hats off to you!

Wow, that was quite a compliment. I really appreciate it and I'm really happy with the response so far. I think your stuff is beautiful, by the way.

Hi Mike, this video is great, nice work.
We haven't met before: my name is Chris. I am a Haligonian writer living abroad and I'd really like to submit a story for your 'True Stories' strip in the Coast. Can I email you?
Cheers,

Chris
