Out in the land of New Zealand, modern land of zeal, there exists an animation studio called… Mukpuddy. Formed by the collective might of Ryan Cooper, Alex Leighton and Tim Evans they make cartoons with a distinctive style and a prolific speed. They took the time out from their morning in the future to our nighttime (because as it turns out, Earth rotates… pun) to talk with us about their new studio space and their brand new, full half-hour animated series The Barefoot Bandits!
Listen for false accusation, guessing emails, Homer Simpson, “Casey Kasem’s” grinder outing, and poo runner taking a backseat (and nobody even noticed that was said, which surprises me)
