Yeah, I imagine some would try to argue that Flash would be just as capable, but working in full broadcast HD, No.. On a technical level, flash is nowhere near as capable. Until Adobe gets off their asses and provides a dedicated CAMERA to Flash, I'll review my opinion. But until then it's NOT a production tool in my opinion. Even the Flash development team stands strongly on the grounds that their software is for web development, not production. They told us that themselves back when we tried to partner with them. They told us "to stop using their software for a purpose it wasn't intended for".

**Please watch in HI-Quality DIVX mode. It just looks and plays back so much better**

Scaredy Squirrel will be premiering on YTV in Canada on April 1st @ 4:25pm! Make sure to catch it!

For those of you outside of Canada, check out the main YTV page for the show, where you can see clips, download wallpapers and more. [link]

When I get more information on USA broadcasters/schedules I will make sure to post it.

I think we should inform the public about CN's epic fail (acquiring "Almost Naked Animals")

@00:11The animation quality and character designs for this series look so nice, would love to see it hit US television!

@00:11Thanks! I have heard a few rumors floating around the studio about a US broadcaster, but I don't want to mention it just yet, in-case it turns out to be entirely untrue. However, We've been told that Scaredy Squirrel is ranked in the top 5 shows on our Canadian broadcaster YTV. That's AMAZING! So, I imagine we'll be hearing about a US broadcaster fairly soon.

@00:11That sounds fantastic, looking forward to hearing good news! Out of curiosity, what animation software is primarily used for the show? Is this ToonBoom Animate/Animate Pro, Flash, or something else?

ToonBOOM animate PRO 2. ^_~
Near the end of season one production we started using a brand new beta build of Animate Pro that is not available publicly yet.

Awesome! Animate Pro is my preferred animation software, despite its bugs. I really like the setup and prefer it to Flash personally.

Oh absolutely. I've been working with Animate Pro even before it became commercially available. It was really wonky at first but now it's quite stable. (even more stable than Maya if you ask my personal opinion). Not long ago, I was working on a personal side project and the other person involved asked that I work in Flash. Going back to flash after working in ToonBOOM Animate PRO for so long REALLY showwed me how limited flash is for animation production, and just simply not capable of doing the quality I need.

Maya drives me nuts, but I hope to get more comfortable with it - I do find Animate Pro is doing the job for my film, so it's been great to work with thus far.

I know people who will argue that Flash is just as capable, but I find ToonBoom so much more user-friendly and feels more like natural drawing.

I don't miss watching TV too much, I prefer watching everything online because I don't have to sit through commercials. XD
