Okay, here's one for you. Come up with a new cartoon idea that you think would be watchable. Here's one I just thought of: Drawn In: A mix of live-action and animation. The lead character is a real-life animator or cartoonist who is creating an animated series. Throughout the series, the character he's created interacts with him, suggesting that he add various things to the cartoon,and the animator decides whether or not to do it. This could work on several levels. For instance, the animator can introduce new characters over time, and if he doesn't like them, can erase them from existence. Also, there could be gags regarding the animated character coming out into the "real" world or the animator getting into the cartoon world. Chowder has done meta-gags that are kind of like this (such as Greenblatt suddenly pulling Shnitzel aside and talking to him), so why not take it all the way?
