Special The Pussycat: Baby's new Formula (1997) (rare pencil test) - Aaron Springer
On my quest for more underground animation, I stumbled upon Special the Pussycat. This fucked up little short was created by Aaron Springer, who happens to be the storyboard director and writer for Spongebob Squarepants, and has worked with some of the greatest animators in the biz. He has also worked on some other notable cartoons such as Dexter's Laboratory, Samurai Jack, The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, and the cult Adult Swim pilot, Korgoth of Barbaria. I love seeing other peoples college work, and even though this short is weird and perverted as all fuck, he has worked on some of my favorite childhood cartoons. We've all got a twisted sense of humor, and if you're as twisted as I, you might enjoy this as much as I did.
