The Guys Behind Homestar Runner Have a New Series for Disney XD

- -

It's called Two More Eggs, and it's exactly what you'd imagine a Homestaresque series backed by Disney would be like.  Here's what senior VP of Disney Animation Eric Coleman had to say about the project:

As we pursue new methods of development and short-form production, we looked to two trailblazers in the field, Matt and Mike, who created a beloved web series years before today’s ubiquitous video-sharing platforms even existed.  This project epitomizes our development strategy – hire great talent and give them the freedom to create content with their unique point of view.

The first three episodes of the forty episode run are already up, and a new episode will premiere each week for the rest of the summer.  Watch those episodes, "Dooble: Dooblie Doo" above, and "CGI Palz: Theme Song" and "Hot Dip: Not 4 Momz" below:

Homestar Runner to Come Back This Fall

Vulture rounds up remarks that Homestar co-creator Matt Chapman made on The Jeff Rubin Jeff Rubin Show:

"When we did that April Fools update this year, way more people looked at it than we ever even imagined would have at this point.

Our goal — we did that thing as sort of a test to get back into doing it. We'd love to start making things again," Chapman says. The April cartoon proved how many fans are still out there, so consider the ball rolling:

The Brothers Chap have already started developing ideas for a new Strong Bad email, and there are lots of possibilities beyond that. "It depends on how whole-hog we go, if we give Strong Bad a Twitter or Strong Sad a Tumblr." Oh, dear God, yes. (Those of us who remember Strong Sad's LiveJournal know he is definitely a Tumblr kind of guy.)

Chapman says the site should start updating again by the fall, so there's time to go through a lot of the archive as a refresher course. Start with the Halloween 'toons; those were always the best.
