"TOON IN WITH ME"
MeTV’s “Toon In With Me” is a live action/animated anthology series which debuted on January 1, 2021 and is still on the air.
It harkens back to locally produced children's programs that aired from the 1950s through the 1990s, with a live-action host, comedy and puppet segments in between classic Warner Bros., MGM and Fleischer Studios cartoons. The difference with "Toon In
With Me" is that its target audience is the baby boomers who grew up watching these cartoons on hosted morning shows back
in the day.
I was part of the creative team which launched the show, and over a period of almost two years, I wrote and/or produced over 100 episodes.
It’s an interesting mix of sketch/situation comedy and “cartoon curation” — think of it as Turner Classic Movies for Golden Age Animation, with scripted comedy segments acting as interstitials between the cartoons.
Here’s a few of the “Toon In With Me” shows that I wrote and produced in 2021/2022:
