Okay, so here's how this happened. I was reading this article on Lauren Faust (yeah yeah, I know what you're thinking, just bear with me here) when I read something particular...
I literally did a double take when I read that... For those of you who don't know, Lauren Faust is the wife of Craig McCracken, creator of The Powerpuff Girls and Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. I would occasionally visit his devientART account here:Faust is working as a co-producer and head of story on the upcoming Disney series Wander Over Yonder, created by her husband, Craig McCracken. The two met while working on The Powerpuff Girls, which McCracken also created; the pair worked together on Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, too.
He also has a website, but for whatever reason, the link's not working for me... I'll post it anyway:
A while back, while visiting his deviantART account, I saw sketches and drawing for this thing called "Wander Over Yonder", about a nomadic hippie "Muppet Man" traveling the land and such. It's kind of a pet project, similar to Lauren Faust's Milky Way and the Galaxy Girls (which you should TOTALLY support). I thought it was a comic book or something at the time, but after reading that little bit, I decided to check another source, and sure enough, it IS going to be a TV series, produced by Disney:
I have yet to find out if it will be on the Disney channel or another one of the channels Disney owns and commands... either way, if it DOES debut on the Disney Channel, it will be the first time in over a DECADE in which I will willingly watch something on that channel!
After all, we're talking about the same guy who created such classic Cartoon Network originals, AND his wife who also worked on those shows is co-producer and head of story! Not to mention, Jack McBrayer (Irving from Phineas and Ferb) and Tom Kenny (Spongbob Squarepants, among many others) are on the voice cast, so obviously there's some talent involved in this. I'll be sure to keep a look-out for more info, when I can!
