Director Statement

Family is a funny thing.

Everyone has that weird experience when a parent starts to treat them like a peer, and suddenly, that parent is revealed to be a real person with real experiences and real emotions instead of the cartoon character the child always perceived them to be.

Cartoon Characters captures that awkward, vulgar moment and bottles it with a sense of optimism and joy.
