THE CONCEPT ART IS GOOD!!!!

Check the new concept art of Peabody (to be played by Robert Downey, Jr.) on Cartoon Brew! Produced by DreamWorks Animation.

Interesting, but... DREAMWORKS ANIMATION is making this?! Let's hope it's not ridden with fart jokes or non Jay Ward-style pop culture references, or characters often making the infamous "DreamWorks Face!"

Looks really good to me. I was pleasantly shocked that it was actually recognizable as Mr. Peabody. I was expecting a creepy cartoon character-real animal CGI hybird (see the live-action versions of Scooby-Doo, Garfield, or Yogi Bear). The fact this will be fully-animated is also a promising sign.

That is a very nice concept painting. Of course, Shrek had great concept art too, and look at how that turned out. Don't forget, this still has to be rendered in CGI. And if it's anything like those Road Runner cartoons Warner Bros. is doing now where you can see every damn strand of fur on the Coyote, I don't exactly have high hopes for a successful hand-drawn-to-CGI conversion.

I thought the Coyote looked pretty good.

I don't see that as a bad thing. I liked the animation of the CGI Road Runner cartoons.

I really hope this movie does retain a degree of Jay Ward-looking style to it. And the tone of the original cartoons. This has the potential to be one of DreamWorks' best if done right.

Also, speaking of the live-action treatment of cartoon, I saw your Yogi comic . No offense, but I watched the cartoons several months ago and I don't recall hearing any puns (other than the name) and found the comic pretty bad.

How dare you criticize such a brilliant comic, go make your own comic before you criticize someone else's! :P
(I'm jesting, by the way, just in case one doesn't catch on).
Oh and I don't see how a 4-minute cartoon would work as a feature film. I just don't.

I was reffering to that one strip. I havn't read the whole comic and since I don't have a DA account, some of the strips are locked.

My response was just me mocking the whole "Make your own film!" mentality. =p It's like telling a guy who hates Ford's cars to build his own car.

Well, it wasn't funny and I was serious about that when I said that to one member.
