Things We Saw Today
You know, for Meow Skywalker, the hilarious cat. See how it was made (and the tricked out interior) at Blastr.
And Now For Something Completely Different
DC Nation - Aardman by redruger The DC Nation animation block premieres later this year alongside new episodes of Young Justice and Green Lantern: The Animated Series, though no date has been set for it as yet one might asume that it will debut sometime in March, alongside the first full season of Green Lantern. It's got lots of stuff that we're interested in, including the return of Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld after only a few sporadic appearances outside of the '80s, and a new series of shorts about Supergirl, Batgirl, and Wonder Girl by Lauren Faust, showrunner of My Little Pony. But, okay, yeah, we're also intrigued by the idea of a claymation Batman-universe show that's animated to the ad libs of child voice actors in the style of Creature Comforts. Because it's adorable.

A Lesson in Humility
As a film major, I can tell you: Stop motion animation takes a lot of work, a lot of patience, and a lot of time. I can also tell you that these people are probably some of the most patient and dedicated people we've seen in a while, because, well, wow. Sumo Science at Aardman Animations created, or at least took advantage of, the world's largest stop-motion animation sets, and made a video that is both charming and very impressive. With a phone. All I ever did was make a pen dance. (via Buzzfeed)
