Western Animation: The Groovenians
The Groovenians was a half-hour CGI television special created by surrealist painter Kenny Scharf. It served as a failed pilot to a potential series that never came into fruition and aired on Cartoon Network only twice, the first time being on the [adult swim] block and the second time being on the "Fridays" block. After a 2003 nomination Annie Award for Best Animated Short Subject, the short was never heard from again. The cast features Paul Reubens as the main character Jet, Drena DeNiro (Robert's daughter) as Glindy, Dennis Hopper in the dual role of the father and the villainous King Norman and Jeff Bennett as Suavo. The B-52s contributed the titular theme while Mutato Muzika composed the music and the "Money Song". Jordan Reichek of Crash Twinsanity fame co-wrote the story, served as the production designer and drew the storyboard.
