A WebAnimation series by Bryan Waterman about {{Cloudcuckoolander}} slacker Waterman, his friend Pal, pseudo RobotBuddy Roy-Bot, love interest Ice Cream Girl and TheChewToy Mr. Dillo.

The series started on [[Website/NewGrounds Newgrounds]] in 2003, and ran all the way to 2009, when production was [[{{Hiatus}} halted]]. Having a humor style similar to ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', ''Waterman'' has had nine episodes produced, along with a short series of {{Fractured Fairy Tale}}s called ''Puppets in the Park'' and a few guest appearances on other animated web shows. The entire series was produced through Waterman Studios HD and used music by [[Music/ReelBigFish Reel Big Fish]].

[[TheMovie A movie]], appropriately titled ''The Waterman Movie'' has been in DevelopmentHell since 2007. The planned film is notably the last acting role of the late LeslieNielsen, with all his lines being recorded before his tragic death in 2010. No information on the film's production or release has come up since 2011.

The series is available on YouTube [[http://www.youtube.com/user/WatermanStudiosHD here.]]

* ArtEvolution: The series' production quality gets a bit better in the later episodes, compared to the very limited animation in the early ones.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Waterman and Roy-Bot.
* {{Crossover}}: The characters from ''Waterman'' appeared in one episode of ''WebAnimation/BonusStage''.

* DrivesLikeCrazy: Roy-Bot.
* EverybodyLaughsEnding: Episode VIII, including Music/ReelBigFish and the Donkster of the Deep.

* FunnyAnimal: Mr. Dillo.

* TheMovie: ''The Waterman Movie''.
* RealSongThemeTune: Thanks to ReelBigFish.
* {{Retraux}}: The strange film Waterman finds in his closet that his relatives made in ''Watergent'', done in a classic nineteen twenties style.
