This month we are talking about everyone's pal - television. We are featuring a profile of veteran animation director and producer Eric Radomski. We are also taking a long hard look at primetime animation and trying to figure out what went wrong this year. In addition, we will showcase five shows that are extra special for many reasons. They include France's "Belphégor," Oxygen's "X-Chromosome," the U.K.'s "Butt-Ugly Martians," Tom Snyder Productions and Disney's "Teacher's Pet."
We are also hearing from DreamWorks' Frank Gladstone about his recent trip to China. Other articles are an interview with Mark Dindal, director of Disney's upcoming feature film, "The Emperor's New Groove," and a special piece from Robert Ramirez, co-director of DreamWorks' first animated feature-length direct to video "Joseph: King of Dreams," who discusses his story experience. We have event reviews including a MIPCOM survey, a diary by Marv Newland from I Castelli, and an extensive photo scrapbook from this year's Ottawa International Animation Festival care of Gary Schwartz. We also have a lot of the old regulars as well, plus a few new surprises so be sure to visit the magazine.
