Cartoons! Supa Pirate Booty Hunt

You know how I've mentioned like a million times how my favorite part of attending conventions is meeting creators? Usually this means writers, illustrators, letterers, and so on. But recently at the Long Beach Comic-Con, I found a new animated cartoon to watch. You just never know what you'll run into at cons.

Sadly, I missed seeing creators Steven Sievers and Dahveed in costume as Daniel the Turtle and The Pirate promoting their cartoon, Supa Pirate Booty Hunt. My loss. At least I did grab a card from Steven to remind myself to check out the cartoon once I got home. It took me way too long to check it out. Don't make my mistake. Skip ahead, click the link below, watch episode 1 now.

The cartoon is a little risque without being too over the top. I'm glad that someone is not Disney-ifying pirates into cute cuddly whoopsies. Pirates are a bit naughty on their best days. I watched every Supa Pirate Booty Hunt video posted in rapid succession. My only complaint? I want more. Cute animations and funny quips. I hope to see longer episodes in the near future.

In their own words:
It's sex, drugs and rock 'n roll all on the high seas! Supa Pirate Booty Hunt is a cartoon intended for a hip, young adult audience. It has no nudity but adult humor and implied sexual situations. It is a hip late night show with a style similar to Adult Swim shows such as Venture Brothers and Aqua Teen Hunger Force.

The show combines classic slapstick squash and stretch Looney Tunes style animation with great action adventure story arches and hilarious comedy. The show spoofs current events, celebrities and the media while being set in a world of ancient magic and futuristic technology."
