[And then there's a link to Night Ghoulery that I assume breaks the rule of "No discussion of how to illegally acquire copyrighted material or links to websites promoting subversion of copyright" ... for which I don't want to be cited for another infraction ...] [And again, another possibly illegal link to Cutie & The Beast.] Guess I'm not seeing what you guys are seeing. These are two very different cartoons ... but both very well executed, animation-wise, in my opinion. The animation of Yakko, Wakko, and Dot skipping along - in perspective - throughout Cutie and the Beast is very hard to pull off well - an animator's nightmare. The acting is fine. They did a great job overall. There weren't as many opportunities to be goofy, as with Plucky in Night Ghoulery. Also, I don't know your information source re: how much pre-production direction (script notes, ex-sheet notes & thumbnails, good usable storyboard poses) TMS received for these cartoons, but technically speaking, TMS (and StarToons and Wang and Akom) were the production teams. If anything, without documentation, I would wager that TMS received less guidance on Night Ghoulery, because WB's in-house directors seemed to get a little more finicky as time went by.
