We're barely into 2007 and we're already full steam ahead. Animax Entertainment just made the featured creator list over at Revver - another home page tout for us. We've been using Revver to distribute some of our original animation productions like those profound missives from Arnold Schwarzenegger over at ArnoldSpeaks.com, our well received Christmas cards and then some of other animated content. If you are a content creator, the Revver model is a producer respectful one in that you get a cut every time someone checks out your content. Take a gander.

The Great White North
Hello, from Canada. Animax Entertainment has folks up here this week working on a big project that we can't tell you about just yet, but it's a fun and different one for us. We're also meeting with some big muckity mucks. If you are a Canadian muckity muck we should be meeting with you too.

Wow - Animax Entertainment loves the new Disney site called Healthy Kids. The site helps kids understand the importance of healthy eating, the food pyramid, and the importance of physical activity. You get a chance to watch, train and play along with all of your favorite Disney characters including Mickey Mouse and his friends, The Incredibles, Lilo & Stitch and Kim Possible. There are a bunch of games mixed in with all the food information. What with all the news reports about kids and obesity, the site hopes to shrink the problem at least a little bit. We're doing sit-ups as we write these very words....

Looks like Animax Entertainment got roped into a little bit of a controversy. The wrestling tabloids have gone into gossip mongering hyperdrive over the cartoon we produce for Vince McMahon and WWE called Mr. McMahon's Kiss My Ass Club.
Yes, there are tabloids that cover the world of pro wrestling and in particular WWE. The journalistic integrity of these rags is mostly on par with Weekly World News, but then again, they don't really need any. They traffic in the sensational world of wrestling, so of course their reporting will be sensationalist. We were even more surprised though to see the "controversy" covered on Frederator, so we decided to issue a statement (we too feel Britney Spears' and Lindsay Lohan's tabloid pain.)
Yes, WWE was sued by the creators of Assy McGee. That's about where the truth in these articles ends and the rest of the assertions are baseless.
- Mr. McMahon has been doing the ass bit in the ring for years now.
- The initial idea for the cartoon came from WWE, but we wrote all the scripts and we designed the characters. (Only 2 episodes have been released but others are in the can.) Everything is original - Mr. McMahon's ass is 100% genuine grade A beef.
- We knew about Assy McGee. We were already in development and production on Mr. McMahon's ass when we saw the trailer on YouTube. We thought it looked interesting, but that, basically, it was boring. (Watched an episode on Cartoon Network recently - like the intro and that's about it.) But the existence or discovery of Assy McGee had no influence over the stories, look or anything done for WWE.
- The base level conception of the shows are very different. While they are both asses, they are as different as Mickey Mouse and Mighty Mouse.
- The WWE show launched before Assy did.
