Emily S. Whitten: Bunsen is a Beast!

  • Comicmix
Butch Hartman has a long and storied history of creating great cartoon shows. Not only is he responsible for The Fairly OddParents, the second longest-running Nicktoon on Nickelodeon, but he’s also created several other popular shows including Danny Phantom and T.U.F.F. Puppy. And now here he is once again with a unique new Nickelodeon show, Bunsen is a Beast.

Bunsen is a Beast is a cartoon about Bunsen (voiced by Jeremy Rowley), the first beast to be integrated into the Muckledunk Middle School, and his new human friend Mikey Munroe (Ben Giroux). It also features self-appointed school safety monitor and beast-hater Amanda Killman (Kari Wahlgren) and a collection of other oddball characters such as Ms. Flap (Cheri Oteri) and Darcy, who circle the main pair during their adventures.

But what is a Beast, per se? Well, in Hartman’s creation, even within the Beast world there appears to be great variety,

How Animator Butch Hartman Created His New Nickelodeon Show ‘Bunsen Is a Beast’

How Animator Butch Hartman Created His New Nickelodeon Show ‘Bunsen Is a Beast’
There’s a new kid in school at Nickelodeon, and he’s a real beast.

“Bunsen Is a Beast” is the latest toon series from longtime Nickelodeon creator Butch Hartman, whose “The Fairly OddParents,” “Danny Phantom,” and “T.U.F.F. Puppy” have all been hits for the studio.

Bunsen” tells the tale of a strange creature learning to navigate the world of middle school for the first time with the help of his human friend Mikey. Bunsen just wants to show the human world that monsters and humans can co-exist peacefully without monsters wanting to eat everyone.

“The show’s about every kid’s experience in school about trying to fit in and be popular. Who better to try and fit in than someone who’s not even from this world,” says Hartman, who first drew the characters back in 2009, when he was considering the idea for a children’s book.

“I drew this cover picture of a boy

FMyLife Web Series Debuts With Embarrassing Proposal Stories

A couple weeks ago, we shined our spotlight on the upcoming 'FMyLife' web series, the result of a collaboration between the Fml team and the duo of Ben Giroux and Ray Chase, who run the Awkward Universe comedy channel. The first episode has now been released on the newly minted FMLVideoGuys YouTube channel. As Giroux previously mentioned, each episode will feature a combination of five short FMLs that share a common theme. The first theme is "proposals", with Giroux, Chase, and several other actors re-enacting their favorite FMLs on the subject. The fastidious nature of Giroux and Chase's selection process is clear; the five FMLs run the gamut from male proposal FMLs to prom proposal FMLs to female-reception-of-proposal FMLs. The question, at least for me, is whether the new Fml web series is a better format than the one Giroux and Chase have produced independently of Fml.

‘FMyLife’ Web Series To Bring Embarrassing Fails To Life

F My Life was one of the great Internet sensations of 2009, a funny, sad, cringe-worthy collection of fails, poor choices, and plain old bad luck. Four years later, the blog's traffic has waned, but that's not stopping Ben Giroux and Ray Chase of Awkward Universe from reminding us of the myriad fails that occur each day. The creative pair, in partnership with Fml, are producing a series of videos showcasing embarrassing moments from the Fml archives. Giroux and Chase will produce at least four videos, each one showcasing multiple one-liners. "We decided to select five Fml's, group them together by a single theme, and rapid-fire them in a single minute-long episode," explained Giroux. "The best Fml's feel like a personal story being recounted by a good friend -- it's embarrassingly intimate. We realized the best way to convey these pathetic stories was to eliminate production dialogue and replace it with morose,

Dailymotion Debuts Odd Couple Sitcom ‘Ben and Burman’

Premiering this week exclusively on Dailymotion is Ben and Burman, a new web series from actor/producer Ben Giroux (Bones, Psych) and his longtime frenemy and Second City’s Scott Burman. The story highlights the pair’s height deficiencies and their Odd Couple cohabitation, which, I’m told, kinda sorta emulates their real life friendship. “We became known as best friends who also hated each other,” said Giroux. “I'm a neat-freak who appreciates order and hygiene. Burman is a slob who appreciates chaos at all times. Together, people started referring to us as a modern-day Odd Couple. Striking up a unique friendship and creating a style of comedy Giroux describes as “if The Three Stooges had sex with South Park,” Giroux and Burman produced the twelve episode series. Then they teamed up with Gary Randall’s Grand Productions (Saving Grace, The Glades). The partnership had definite benefits, as the duo

What They're Doing For Love

Every young actor wants only to be a film or TV star, right?Well, that's not quite true. A sturdy crop of young actors recently graduated from college theater programs has been giving stellar performances in musical theater productions across the country.Take, for instance, Jessica Keenan Wynn, currently the sole female in "Life Could Be a Dream," a doo-wop musical set in 1960. Written and directed by Roger Bean ("The Marvelous Wonderettes"), the show is currently playing at Los Angeles' Hudson Mainstage Theatre."There's something about musical theater where everything is heightened through song," Wynn says. "I hate to say it, but if I could sing my emotions every day—without being thought of as clinically insane—I probably would." (Perhaps Wynn comes by her enthusiasm naturally. She's the granddaughter of actor Keenan Wynn, who appeared on Broadway in musical revues in the 1930s and 1940s, and the great-granddaughter of Ed Wynn,
