Wow, that gay duck cartoon sounds like a TNT blast of pure entertainment.

In its short life, Icebox burned through $15 million...

DOING WHAT?! Jeez, by the looks of it, I could have done what they did for a couple hundred bucks!

I bet it was all those $2000 aeron chairs.

Something else I never checked out because I don't have broadband.

Icebox sucked.

I went to the San Diego Comic Con in 2000 and Icebox had a panel and they showed some Zombie College and Kricfalusi's stuff. Icky, awful, unentertaining. Kricfalusi, it seems to me, is more entertaining when he has his id in check by suits.

The really disgusting thing was the pseudo-hipsters in the audiences - writers and whatever - all talking about how Icebox was great and the latest Friends script they were working on.

More proof that just because you can write for a sitcom does not guarantee you can write for the web.

My sister, an animation student, always maintained that Icebox was terrible and that most of her classmates were already doing better work. "Zombie College!? That's the whole premise. Zombies. College." As a result I never went to check it out myself, but I'm sure she won't be too sad to learn of its demise.

a walking Asian stereotype
Woah--crazy! When I think of Asian sterotypes, I usually imagine them with no legs! Off the wall!

Whats ironic is that they are SXSW finalist in the Film/Film Industry, Humor/Satire, Streaming Video, and Weird/Extreme categories.
