Cartoon Lagoon Studios Launches
Galán worked at Marvel, DC Comics and Archie Comics, before joining Nickelodeon, first in their Consumer Products division, and later in the On Air department where he wrote and directed hundreds of shorts, including the legendary NIckmas series, Captain Nick, and How Angelica Stole Christmas. Galán’s toy line “Dookie-Poo” is an award-winning collection of designer vinyls and plush. They also co-own two small comic book publishing companies, featuring the indie-hit Monkeysuit series, and Combination Platter collections.
But Cartoon Lagoon is the culmination of years of hard work -- half of which was spent in Manny's basement.
“Manny started building a submarine in his basement, about two years ago. He would mention it now and again, you know, this goofy thing,” Giles says. “Next thing I know this stunning miniature submarine stage appears. It was amazing.”
The show features some noteworthy talent, including legendary voice actor Chris Phillips as “The Captain”; director Euralis Weekes; and head writer Steve Borst (Robot Chicken, MAD).
“We had a great time making this and we’re thankful that so many talented folks were interested in helping us create this modern day tribute to the things we hold so dear,” Galán says.
