Director Statement

The Afro Brother Spacemen cartoon entitled “The Day The Earth Stood Stupid” is animated in the style of early television animation, with old test pattern thick lines around the characters. Also it’s written in the style of Rocky & Bullwinkle. A satire for our current times in New Orleans and the country. The voices of the characters are distinct and lend personality to the wild cinematic proceedings thanks to the actors who helped me on the project. I can’t thank the actors and crew enough for their work on the production; as it couldn’t have been done without their dedication and enthusiasm.
The Afro Brother Spacemen thank them all for bringing the crew of the Motherland One to life.
John Slade.
