The kids over at cartoon network are really outdoing themselves with some of their new site features. Michael and I are HUGE fans of Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends, probably the smartest and most entertaining cartoon on air today (I love Futurama and Family Guy too, so give me a break.) The series is lead by Mac (a little boy) and Bloo (his imaginary friend), as they run into all sorts of quirky situations and meet an array of imaginary characters. Today I came across the "Gallery of Imagination", where you can build your own imaginary friend. This is a great little piece of flash with a slick and friendly interface.
Give it a try. It is a heck of a lot of fun. We have a great appreciation for impressive flash work, so kudos to the team that built it. I wish they were still putting this much finesse into their dvd menus. Season 1 had a beautifully witty menu with washing machines for navigation items. We felt that every penny spent on it was well worth it. Season 2 has more of a standard menu with whimsical frames around each item, but some of the graphics are terribly aliased, as if someone made a mistake in production. It looks like very low quality compared to the first. And Craig McCracken- (if you ever happen to read this), we don't care what the marketing department says, WE HATE CHEESE. But don't worry, we still love you.
Make your own totally awesome friend here.
