What a Cartoon!/World Premiere Toons

From Wikipedia:
“What A Cartoon/World Premiere Toons was an animation project conceived and produced by Fred Seibert; its mission was to return creative power to animators and artists, by going back-to-the-future and recreating the atmospheres that spawned the great cartoon characters of the mid-20th century.”

What a Cartoon! (aka World Premiere Toons) was our first big idea cartoon incubator, an innovation into the resurrection of the classic cartoon short. Created by Frederator executive producer Fred Seibert when he was president of Hanna-Barbera Cartoons, the series launched on Cartoon Network in 1995 with Dexter’s Laboratory.

48 shorts were made over the next three years, eventually spinning off six hit series (The Powerpuff Girls, Cow & Chicken, Johnny Bravo, I.M. Weasel, Courage the Cowardly Dog, and Dexter’s) , and winning Hanna-Barbera’s only Academy Award nomination (for Courage).

We’ve been producing hit-spawing shorts ever since (150 more as of 2011) with Oh Yeah! Cartoons (The Fairly OddParents, ChalkZone, My Life as a Teenage Robot), The Meth Minute 39 (Nite Fite), and Random! Cartoons (Adventure TIme, Fanboy & Chum Chum).
