Dec. 14th when our special Holiday guest will be: FRED SEIBERT President & Executive Producer Frederator Studios - Developed the MTV brand in 1981 as founding Creative Director at MTV - Co-Founder Fred/Alan Productions and rebranded Nickelodeon and oversaw the launch of VH-1 - President of Hanna/Barbera under Turner Broadcasting System - Founded Frederator Pictures, Frederator Studios & Channel Frederator "Since 1992 I've been in the cartoon business," says Seibert. "That's the year I became president of Hanna-Barbera. When I started out I didn't know much about cartoons, but I had one simple idea: If you want great cartoons, make them the way the greatest cartoons of all time were made. I wanted to create short, seven minute, funny cartoons with vivid characters and hilarious stories and gags the way the great cartoonists of the 30s and 40s did it." As a result, Frederator Studios showcases new and independent animators, but now, it's all accessible online. A weekly downloadable anthology of short cartoons, Channel Frederator has jumped into video podcasting in a big way.
