Toons on Demand

Animation vets get Sticky

Animation vets David Burke and Eli Balser have bowed, a site that will feature Webtoons developed by Bill Schwab (“Beavis and Butthead,”) Kelly Armstrong (“Ren & Stimpy”) and Greg Emison (“Cow and Chicken”).

Burke, founder of Plum Loco Productions, and Balser, formerly of MTV Animation and Klasky-Csupo, founded the Netco in February after receiving $700,000 in funding from Chris Anderson, founder and CEO of Imagine Media.

Webtoons on StickyFlicks will be under three minutes in length and will be bowing at a rate of one per week by the end of August.

Included on the site are “Vi & Marge,” a tribute to the cross-country trucker lifestyle; “Tasteless Joke Theater,”; “Jarnak — The Jive-Ass Jerk From Jupiter” and “Mr. Pants.”

Interactive games will also be available on the site.
