Frederator Studios launches ReFrederator vintage cartoon podcast
New daily vintage video podcast features classic cartoons and cultural icons

Frederator Studios marks two milestones this week. ReFrederator, the world’s first daily vintage cartoon video podcast, launches Monday, April 17. On Tuesday, April 18, the studio celebrates the showing of their 100th cartoon on its flagship Channel Frederator video podcast. This animation work has been lauded by such publications as The Wall Street Journal and Paper.

ReFrederator will feature classic cartoons from the public domain such as Bugs Bunny, Mighty Mouse, Daffy Duck, Betty Boop, Little Lulu, Porky Pig, Donald Duck and Felix the Cat, as well as fairy tales and musicals. Every 7-9 podcast will feature a short-form classic cartoon and promotional packaging and branding from ReFrederator. New episodes will appear daily Monday through Friday, grouped into weekly themes.

The first week of the new series features a Mother Goose theme, beginning with a 1935 Humpty Dumpty cartoon from Ub Iwerks, Walt Disney’s personal friend and first employee, followed by Mighty Mouse in “Wolf! Wolf!” from 1945 and the Oscar-nominated “Pigs in a Polka” from director Friz Freling. The week will wrap up with “Poor Cinderella,” the only color Betty Boop cartoon, and “Foney Fables,” a series of short vignette parodies of classic Disney stories.

Programming for ReFrederator is headed by producer Eric Homan and illustrator, cartoonist, and scholar Dave Kirwan. Consultants include noted animation historian Jerry Beck and writer Melissa Wolfe. The launch programming was edited by Barry Hirschberg. The ReFrederator name and logo were developed and designed by noted illustrator, designer, and author Leslie Cabarga.

Frederator founder Fred Seibert is one of the world’s leading independent cartoon producers and the executive producer of six hit series on the Nickelodeon networks, including its number one show The Fairly Oddparents. Prior to forming Frederator Studios, Seibert served as president of Hanna-Barbera Cartoons, where he led the return of cartoons to the television mainstream, producing over 100 shorts that spun off now legendary series like Dexter’s Laboratory, Johnny Bravo, and The PowerPuff Girls, and the studio’s only Oscar nomination for Courage the Cowardly Dog.
