Frank Forte announces Goon Cartoons as a You Tube partner channel for original animated content
"I'm really excited to be part of the You Tube partner channel family," says Frank Forte, "we've got some really funny cartoon shorts that we've been working on and we can't wait to show the world."

Goon Cartoons will launch a new cartoon every Monday and subscribers to the channel will get notified before anyone else.
"We'll be using traditional 2D on paper, Flash, After Effects, stop motion, claymation, cut paper, Super 8 and anything else we can get our hands on," explains Forte, "we want to experiment with every medium."
Some of the creators Goon Cartoons will be working with are Jim Smith (Ren and Stimpy, the Ripping Friends, Monsters Vs. Aliens), Gene McGuckin (Ren and Stimpy: Adult Party Cartoon, Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, the Mr. Men Show), and Elizabeth J. Musgrave (Farmhouse, Hell Comes To Hollywood).
"It's great to get back to ol' fashioned slap-stick comedy," says animator Gene McGuckin,"making cartoons do things that people can't do in real life (instead of trying to copy it)."
"We're really fired up to be working with such amazing talent", says Frank Forte, "as well as other animators, designers and storyboard artists from the Los Angeles animation community and all over the world."
