    Five million years ago, the Atlantic Ocean covered North America all the way to the Ohio Valley. As the ocean receded to form our present-day geography, a family of squids was stranded in a remote setting in the North Georgia mountains. This motley melange of mischievous mollusks, influenced by the rural ways of the redneck locals, quickly "adapticise" to a world of fighting, feuding and fornicating with a Faulknerian flambé of ferocious sea creature livin'. The humor lies in the "adapticization." Early guest starred in the "Perfect Hair Forever/Anime Talk Show" which aired on [adult swim] on November 7, 2004.moreless

    Renton Thurston is your ordinary 14-year-old boy, who has grown bored of his current life in his hometown. He is the son of the acclaimed hero of the military, and every day, he has no greater dream than to look up to his idol, Holland, who is skilled in the hoverboard sport referred to as "REFFing" ("Lifting," in the English dub). He also believes that he would one day join the LFO rebel group Gekkostate, and surf the skies.

    As he tries to master the art and skill of REFfing, Renton has nothing more than his dreams and his hopes, which his grandfather mechanic dismisses as something useless. But one day, Renton's life changes, when a REFfing LFO mecha crashes into his house, out of which emerges the most beautiful girl pilot he's ever seen. Now, Renton finds himself in the middle of a war in which he absolutely has no desire to be involved in, having the ride of his life with his newfound love, his number one idol, and his hero father.

    Moral Orel

    Adult Swim (ended 2008)
    Moral Orel is a TV-MA clay-mation series on Cartoon Network's [adult swim] segment, which centres around the life of Orel Puppington, a young boy who consistently fails in his attempts to understand and abide by Protestant Christian values.

    Orel takes his cues from the authority figures around him; his parents Clay and Bloberta, school coach Stopframe, Reverend Putty, and others. Unfortunately for Orel, he always misunderstands the actions of his mentors, who are mostly shown as bitter, jaded, and merely paying lip service to their religious beliefs.

    These misunderstandings often lead to circumstances where Orel believes that he's following the Lord's wishes by doing things such as smoking crack, re-animating the bodies of dead townsfolk, practising euthanasia, or even impregnating sleeping women with a sperm-filled pastry bag. At the end of each episode, Orel's misbehaviour is discovered and he is taken to his father's study for a beating and a twisted explaination one might not expect from a responsible adult.


    Season 2
    The second season episodes of Moral Orel somewhat eradicated the repeated narrative structure seen in Season 1 episodes, which dramatically changed the way the stories unfold; creating a fresh new approach. The majority of episodes 11-30 focus primarily on other townsfolk and their relationship with Orel, whilst still creating twisted situations. The stop-motion animation improves enormously with the Season 2 episodes; creating a richer quality in picture, with more detail. New locations and townsfolk are also introduced and expanded upon.

    Season 3
    The third and final season took the show to the next level. These episodes revolve around events leading to and following the Season 2 finale, which proved to be the series' turning point. These episodes also incorporate elements of other episodes from the past two seasons, mainly from the viewpoints of other characters, ultimately tying the entire series together and wrapping it up nicely.


    Overview & History
    Although the show slightly resembles the visual animation of the 1960s series Davey and Goliath, Dino Stamatopoulos, creator of Moral Orel, has said that it is not a parody, stating that "there's no getting around that it's religious, but the word parody to a comedian is a dirty word, because one has to know what the show is parodying to like it."

    The show originally stemmed from the concept for a send-up of a Leave It to Beaver-like 1950s family comedy, that would star Iggy Pop. The idea eventually grew and evolved into a cartoon.

    "It's an incredibly tightly written show, with probably the strongest narrative structure of anything we have on the network."
    - Nick Weidenfeld (Head of Development at Adult Swim)



    Production Companies:
    Fragical Productions
    Williams Street
    ShadowMachine Films


    The name of Dino Stamatopoulos' production company "Fragical Productions" came from a song his daughter wrote about him being "fragical." The animation sequence for the company was animated by Dino himself and uses a fairy (magical) in a wheel-chair (fragile); making up the company's name. The "hello-goodbye" heard is said by his daughter, Tigger, and is a saying that she created.moreless
