Outstanding Achievement in an Animated Interactive Production

The Goddamn George Liquor Program was the first cartoon series to be produced exclusively for the internet. Created by John Kricfalusi, the man who brought the original Ren & Stimpy Show to TV, it has blazed the trail for animation distributed over the internet.

Freed from network interference, concerns about censorship and restrictive government regulation on how advertising can be incorporated into animated programming, John K has been able to experiment with new ideas to bring his unfiltered vision for the future of adult animation to his fans.

In the most recent entry in the series, John K has incorporated interactivity into the program with a baffling game, "Stuff the Duck in Jimmy's Butt", and a secret "easter egg" (which is revealed here for the first time!) When Jimmy's girlfriend, Sody Pop appears in his dream wearing a bikini, click on her left inner thigh twice. Needless to say, this part of the show is for adults only...

The future of The Goddamn George Liquor Program looks promising. John K has announced his intention to create an online cartoon network, named realcartoons.net which would host The Goddamn George Liquor Program along with other programs aimed at young children and teens. He is also working on a new concept for advertising on the internet-- creating animated characters who would act as mascots for products, as well as appearing in their own cartoon adventures... the same model that Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera followed in the early days of TV animation.

Although there were no other nominees in this Annie category this year, it is clear that this situation will be changing fast. The Goddamn George Liquor Program is pioneering the course of animation on the internet that many will follow in the next few years.
