Can you prove it?

Are the whipcracks part of the script?

proof?

Do you guys really had a crossdress/ gender bender fetish? This was way TOO recorrent.

Which season(s)? Makes all the difference.

Paper or plastic?

Did you have your word processor set up to auto-fill the word "whipcrack" every time you used punctuation?

How's your sex life?

>>77960116
Not possible. Johnny Test didn't have any writers. Source: I've seen a few episodes.

Ranch or Cool Ranch?

>>77960138
>>77960167
Sure, what kind of proof? I can't show you any scripts though.

>>77960164
No. I had no idea about any of the whipcracks until I watched my episode air on TV. We only send off the scripts and our job is done.

>>77960172
I didn't write any of those episodes.

>>77960175
Season 6

>>77960183
Paper.

>>77960222
I had zero input on the amount of whipcracks used per episode.

>>77960227
It's alright.

>>77960252
They actually do. Someone has to do it.

>>77960261
Cool Ranch.
>>
did they at least pay ok?
>>
How did you get the job? Have you worked for any other shows?
>>
>>77960399
The pay was alright. Thanks to the show I was able to pay rent when I couldn't find other writing jobs at the time. You could say that Johnny Test saved my life.

Why do you hate yourself?

>Sure, what kind of proof? I can't show you any scripts though.

I guess anything that you could plausibly show us that proves you're not just making shit up, or at least that would be difficult to throw together in a few minutes if you were lying. You choose; you're the writer here.

Or alternatively, some detailed accounts of what it was like to write for it if you don't have anything physical to show,

I don't hate myself. When I joined the show I didn't know it had such an infamous reputation on the internet. I tried to make the show the best it could be, but you can only do so much when you have a director who approves or denies your ideas.

>>77960424
I knew one of the other writers on the show who loved working on the show. He knew I was looking for work and told me that a show he worked on was renewed for a sixth season and needed a couple of new writer since some writers left the show after the previous season. He referred me over and I got the job.

What are your future projects? Still in the animation industry?
>>
>>77960644
>I don't hate myself. When I joined the show I didn't know it had such an infamous reputation on the internet.
That's good and you're lucky to not be well acquainted with this shithole. You have a job, connections and most likely people who care about you.

Leave /co/ before it's too late, the internet will only drag you down to it's level with it's incessant whining and unhappy curmudgeons.
>>
How many episodes did you write?
>>
>>77960495
Sure, I'll tell you an interesting story.

When I first started writing for the show, I was given access to the production bible. It gave me a good idea of what the show and characters were about, but I started binge watching the random episodes to better understand the show. I wanted to try out some new storylines built around characters that didn't get much of the spotlight. I wrote half a script centered around Mary Test to help differentiate her from Susan a bit more.

The script was declined because the director said the way I was portraying her wasn't present in the bible. I told him that I was sticking to the bible but also trying to flesh out here character more because I didn't see any Mary centered episodes. After that I didn't bother fighting with him. If an attribute to a character wasn't present in the bible, we couldn't use it at least on the season I worked on. I threw out the Mary episode and began writing making sure that everything and I mean everything matched the character outlines in the bible.

I'm writing for another cartoon that hasn't been announced yet. I can at least tell you that I have more freedom with this show than I did with Johnny Test.

>>77960928
I'm not going to give an exact number, but it was 2-4.

Are you on another cartoon now?

I'm not a terminator sent back in time to kill the person that is responsible for reviving the worst show ever made.

Was it worth it?
>>
>>77961159
Yes, I'm having a lot of fun on the new show.

>>77961170
I only wrote the first draft of the episode before scrapping it. If I had the opportunity to flesh it out more it would be better.

Mary gets tired of being the nicer twin after Johnny makes fun of her for having little backbone when comparing her to Susan. She then aspires to have more of a dark side to her like her sister.

When Mary comes home from school while Susan is stuck late, she bumps into The Brain Freezer. They first yell at each other but then they realize that might have a connection between them. Brain Freezer convinces her to be his evil sidekick and the two work together to commit small crimes around town. Eventually Brain Freezer wants her to help him rob a bank but Mary is hesitant so Brain Freezer decides to do it himself.

Eventually Johnny and Dukey save the day and The Brain Freezer is arrested. They also find out that Mary's been helping him. Mary tells the two why she did it. Johnny apologizes for being too tough on her earlier and Mary admits that she went a little too far. The episode ends with a little hint that there still might be a relationship between The Brain Freezer and Mary.

As I said it would be better if I had the opportunity to work on this episode more.

Calm Saturday. Can't complain.

Sure. It kept me employed and helped me learn more about writing. Johnny Test was just practice to me.

I have a couple of show ideas. I tried pitching them to a few people, but only one was interested in picking one up. We were supposed to produce a pilot but it got cancelled. Maybe one day.

I have to go in a half hour so if you have any more questions go ahead and ask.

I used to browse 4chan all the time when I was younger. I decided to visit today out of curiosity where I found an MS Paint image of Quagmire from Family Guy beating up Johnny Test. I was confused since the show has been over for a while. I thought the hatred would have moved onto another show by now, but people seem to still really hate this show.

I decided to post to give people insight on what the crew of Johnny Test had to deal with.

I'm friends with some of the other writers and storyboarders and they're all really good people. I can tell you that we all did the best we could do with the cards we were dealt with.

>>77962771
Because the higher ups wanted racing episodes.

>>77962801
Dukey was always fun to write for. He's such a smart ass. Mr. Black and White were also fun too.
>>
>>77963173
I'm like 90% percent sure that MS paint image you speak of was made by known autist and spammer Timbox.

He posts repeatedly about his Youtube OC, the Anytown show, spams JT hate threads with MS paint OC, and seems also on occasion responsible for repeatedly posting "news" about Nickeodeon and its older properties.

Nobody on /co/ cares about JT much these days, I think, but I don't use it much.

>>77963173
how did you break into the industry? what degree did you go for?
>>
>>77962904
I'm not here to badmouth anyone and I'm sorry if I came across that way. I've had good experiences with everybody else on the show.

I was just a writer, I wasn't in charge of the show. Even though I disagreed with his approach to the show, he was not a pain in the ass and in fact I highly respect him.

He had a clear vision for the show and he made sure that happened and if I gave him a script that didn't fit his vision he had every right to tell me to change it. I for one think that's very admirable.

>>77963401
I studied business in college, but after college I started writing theater scripts as a hobby. I got into the industry by knowing the right people. They helped me get jobs and I helped other people get jobs. It's important of who you know.

>>77963272
It was kind of tough to fit the vision for the show. My favorite part was delivering the final draft of an episode and then almost a year later watching it on TV even with the overused whipcrack sound.
>>
>>77963495
My ideal Sunday is doing nothing at all.

That was fun everyone but I have to go now. Have a great weekend everybody!

is writing for a tv show a group effort? like you all sit down and brainstorm ideas? or is it just that you write 1 script and send it in and the next guy does that etc..

basically what is the process like

Not true, all our actual showpals broke down because of reasons not related to /co/.

That's one thing that all Scott Fellows' works have in common. Be it select episodes of Fairly Oddparents, Ned's Declassified or Big Time Rush.
>>
>>77960986
So what your saying is that Scott Fellows, the man directing all of this wants to be a greedy shithead and pretty much just say, "Screw logic, I'm a grown-up I make the shit that is shit."
