The Ricky Gervais Show Animated Series by happydoodle The Ricky Gervais Show Animated Series by happydoodle
I love the "Ricky Gervais Show Animated Series"! It's one of my favorite cartoon series!

The visual look of the show is extremely appealing, a bit of Hanna-Barbera/UPA style with the modern cartoon style. And I learned that the art director of the show worked on the "Mighty B!" and it shows! I was immediately won over with the character designs and expressions.

The cartoon even sparked my interest on the podcast itself. I listened to some bits of it on youtube and I couldn't stop laughing. I wish all the recordings could be animated!

I have to buy the DVD, along with the original podcast. I'm really excited for the third season!

Update 3-26-12: My laptop crashed and erased everything, but I found the psd file of this picture in one of the computers at my university. I made a couple changes so now it looks better to me. It's in size 17x11, which was my original intention. Horray!

I love this! It's always awesome to find others who enjoy this (in my opinion) criminally underrated series.

I like how you saw Hannah barberry in the animation style. I've always thought Ricky looked a bit like barney from the flinstones

I watch this show because I've loved Steve, Ricky and Karl from the XFM days. I know the dialogue word-for-word but I find myself re-watching the show just to stare at the beautiful backgrounds and character designs.

I love your take on the characters, your design is so unique and so alive! Every detail is interesting to look at. Fantastic work!

Well Karl isn't the only victim sometimes. In the XFM recordings, he used to always insult Steve.

Yeah the features of Fred Flintstone were applied onto Ricky's design, which is what Ricky wanted for the show.

I must thank you for bringing this show to my attention! I've had a good laugh ever since I started watching it. My favorites right now are "Quote, Animals", "Donor Ghosts", "Karl's Film Idea", and "Karl Introduces his Diary".

Been following your art quite a while, mostly from your Tumblr account. It's a joy looking through it!
