For those who noticed, yes, Jymuloxx Cortribbonz is a character invented by Jon Schnepp. He was most known as a director and original character designer for Metalocalypse, and for his own documentary film The Death of Superman Lives… What Happened?
This is the first creative thing I ever did with Jon. I picked him up at his place, we went to a coffee shop, he ate a muffin while jotting down ideas, then I drove him to my studio where we recorded his fake character. I had a great time playing the straight-man and asking sincere questions.
Jon Schnepp was an unstoppable creative force, until he was finally stopped by a sudden illness in 2018. I hope someday there is a documentary or museum dedicated to his creativity. And here is just one small piece of it…
Who here doesn’t remember the 1980s show Real Gibbons on Nickelodeon? I’m not afraid to admit I still have a worn-out (and now autographed) VHS tape with the first 3 episodes, but still haven’t been able to find any clips on YouTube.

Guess where Adult Swim got all their animation techniques? You guessed it.
