The West Patch Theme Song!

Share Collapse

There is a genre of cartoons meant to protect children from reality: the characters learn a moral at the end of the day, always resolve their differences, and wake up the next day as though nothing bad ever happens. But what if it did? In the pleasant neighborhood of the West Patch, the thin veil of happiness starts to tear, and consequences for the characters' actions begin to linger.

This is a satire series where we deconstruct consequence-free cartoons with a psychotic and magical twist! In ten episodes that run approximately five minutes each, the family and friends of the West Patch will break from their perky states of denial to unexpected self-reflection, all in the peppy narrative of their daily lives as told by the increasingly frustrated narrator. Join the descent into madness!

Episode one got released! I love it so far!

Digging this style!

After watching the commentary about you had on your Patreon I must say I am VERY excited to see this drop when it's ready. Sounds very meta!

btw, what's that creepy eye-cave closing on them?

theWestPatch responds:

Thank you so much!!
It's a creepy eye cave ; )

Definitely getting the 80s vibe. I like the direction you're taking with this.

The backgrounds looked like they were from an 80's cartoon but the characters seemed modern, not quiet the best mix. Best to go one way or the other.

theWestPatch responds:

Thanks for the feedback :)

I'm seeing some and cancerous CalArts influences here.
The main dude is literally Steven Universe and the girl with the glasses is Dendy from OK K.O.

However, I'm sure that this has some potential to evolve. Don't give up on your idea, but try to make the 2 chars I mentioned look a bit more unique, I guess.

theWestPatch responds:

Thanks for the feedback. Haven't watched OK K.O. but I see the Steven similarities. I guess chubby kids with black hair are off limits for a while? lol
Valid to keep it in mind, though, thanks for pointing it out! The main influences were He-man, Moomin, and Hanna Barbera shows.
