Beavis and Butt-Head Hallucination sequence

When I was pretty much right out of school in the mid-nineties, I was lucky enough to direct a sequence in Beavis and Butt-Head Do America. I had been working on the series (and the movie) as a storyboard artist for the past year or so and had just wrapped up. All the other sequences were being handled by directors from the show and Yvette Kaplan, the animation director, needed someone to handle the Hallucination sequence. Since I had done some "weirdo shit" that had caught the eye of Yvette and Mike Judge, I was chosen for the gig. Recently I found an early, uncut version of this sequence with quite a bit more footage than made it into the film. I also found a very early animatic. I've posted both videos here. They are both heavily influenced by Big Daddy Roth, an idol of my youth. I was incredibly influenced by custom car culture. You can see this in this hallucination sequence, as well as in my new animated series Motorcity (which you can check out on Disney XD, Mondays at 9pm.) Check out the first episode on iTunes. Here's the early, uncut version of the hallucination sequence: And here's the very early animatic: And here's a picture of me and Mike Judge after 4 wheeling in the swamps of Georgia with Zac Brown last week:
And lastly, Here's a promo for Motorcity:

Motorpocalypse - Metalcity

I know I haven't posted here for a while, but I had to put up a link to this mashup. Metalocalypse season 4 is premiering this Sunday April 29th. The next night my Disney XD show Motorcity is premiering - Monday April 30th. Somebody figured out a connection between these and cut together this YouTube video. We've been working hard at Titmouse over the last year making these cartoons. Please watch them on the TV set. Brendon Small did the main title theme song for Motorcity and a bunch of music in the show.
