Cartoon Network’s 20th Birthday Music Video by I Love Dust

Pull up a seat, put on a party hat, and have yourself a big slice of cake; Cartoon Network just turned 20! On October 1st, 1992, Cartoon Network made its official debut on television sets across America. With a vast 8, 500 hour cartoon library at its disposal, the network became the beneficiary of classic reruns from Warner Bros, MGM, and Hanna-Barbera. Two years later, Cartoon Network Studios was founded and the the network expanded into original programming. Fast-forward to today.

For their big 2-O, the network commissioned London studio, I Love Dust, to create an original music-video commemorating 20 years of animated cartoons. The piece is a who’s who of animation and features an ensemble cast of nearly 100 beloved characters. With music by Mad Decent, the two-minute spectacular invites everybody to celebrate the fantastic legacy of Cartoon Network.

So, how did they do it? We caught up with I Love Dust for a juicy look into Cartoon Network’s 20th Birthday Music Video here.

I was amazed when I saw this on TV the other night mostly because I grew up with a lot of the characters I can’t believe its been 20 years already and I still watch it religiously. Great piece had to be a blast to work on.

Hi motionographer, I just read your post about Music and I wanted to let you know that my friend Josh Rimer just made a new song parody about Taylor Swift’s song “We Are Never Getting Back Together”. I figured it would probably be of interest to your readers. You can see it at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3OeummpxzV8 – the ending is hilarious! Thanks, Neel
