The creator is a genius. If you don't have anything better to do, I recommend watching his interview:http://www.cartoonnetwork.com/video/dlink/index.html?episodeID=8a25c39219b852e00119b96628770014
"A good Flapjack cartoon is, uh...one that makes you a little uncomfortable. I think comedy...at least the comedy that I like, uh, are shows that make you a little...feel a little off-kilter, a little uncomfortable, touch a lot of emotions, and then hit ya, um, with a good joke."
"I think there's a lot of shows that say what they're gonna do next, explain it while they're doing it, explain what just happened, and at Flapjack we try to catch you off guard. We try to set something up, and then give you something else."
"Surprises and jokes. And sincerity. I think the jokes will get you watching the show, and it will get you to watch a new show, but I think it's having a relationship with the characters that really keep you watching. These are...your friends on televison."
