    About this video

    Ever wonder how the series Beavis and Butt-Head got launched? Or how “The Ambiguously Gay Duo” is directly related to a decapitated chicken? Maybe you were intrigued by a bankrupt superhero turned cartoon character defense attorney? And while we’re at it, who did the logo segment that closes each and every episode of The Colbert Report? In this interview, J. J. Sedelmaier covers these important questions and discusses several experiences he and his studio have endured while producing some of the most entertaining animation ever to come out of a small, independent cartoon and design shop in White Plains, New York.
