Doogtoons.com is set to launch a new web series, titled Doogtoons In the Studio, a fully animated celebrity talk show featuring actual celebrity voices. The first episode will debut on Nov. 1 with multi-Grammy Award-winning musician and satirist Weird Al Yankovic and comic legend Tommy Chong.
Yankovic will be on the show promoting his new album, Straight Out of Lynwood, talking about the making of the CD, how he got his start in showbiz and growing up ‘Weird.’ Best known for the series of films he made with long-time comedy partner Cheech Marin, Chong most recently held down a regular role on That 70s Show. Doogtoons will animate hime talking about the birth of ‘Chong’ as a comedy icon, the secrets behind a possible Cheech and Chong sequel and his recent time in prison. Doogtoons In the Studio will bring in other celebs from the world of film, TV and music with the lure of free publicity.
Doogtoons is the brainchild of Doug Bresler, who recently picked up the award for Best Animated Short at the 2006 DIY Film Festival, received the First-Place Comedy award on Bolt.com and had one of his original series, Nick and Haig, picked up as part of G4TV’s Midnight Spank programming block.
