This is an interesting thread idea...in fact, I think we had a thread like this a while back...but as I said before, while I do indeed have cartoon ideas that I hope to see come to life one day, I don't reveal any of my ideas on the internet, because the walls have eyes and ears and thieves lurk around every corner. (Not too paranoid, right?)
Revealing an idea that you care about on a public message board without first obtaining the services of a lawyer or a copyright is like parking your car in the bad part of town with the doors unlocked and the keys still in the ignition; ya just don't it.
However, I will say what I'd like to achieve in my cartoons:
As many of you already know by now, I'm an advocate of gender equality in cartoons; I try to come up with equally good, funny and juicy roles and characterizations for both male and female characters. And I like the funny. While I do enjoy a good action cartoon, my first love will always be comedy. I try to inject as many clever jokes, sight gags and laughs as I can into my shows. And I like crazy stuff that simply can't be done in live-action. I like to bend and warp the rules of reality in my work, I like weird, absurdist stuff like alien monsters taking up residence in suburbia and everyone else more or less accepting them and letting them join the PTA, that sort of thing. I'm not all that into 'animated reality', and I generally try to avoid political and social humor in my work. Generally, I like for my cartoons to take advantage of their cartoonishness.
Animation-wise, I prefer hand-drawn overall, but I'm open to CG, as long as it's professional-looking. I'm not a huge fan of Flash, but it's cheap and easy to produce, so I could see myself going that way when I first start out, until I have a bigger budget to work with.
