J.G. Quintel Is Not A Bird: The ‘Regular Show’ Roundtable [SDCC]
By Chris Sims
Cartoon Network’s Regular Show is hands down one of the most enjoyable shows on television, and it can also be one of the hardest to figure out. Centered on a pair of slackers in their 20s — who are also a bluejay and a raccoon — and their job working for a park with an immortal white gorilla, a ghost, and an extremely angry gumball machine, it often takes a strange turn into magical realism. Clearly, it raises a lot of questions, and thanks to Comic-Con International, I was able to ask a few of them, finding out about the show’s guest stars, the way the characters have developed, how they’ve managed to get away with some of the edgier scenes, and the upcoming half-hour special that’s slated to kick off Season 4.
Check out our roundtable discussions with show creator and star J.G. Quintel (Mordecai), supervising producer Sean Szeles, creative director Mike Roth, voice actor Bill Salyers (Rigby), animator Sam Marin (Muscle Man) and writer Matt Price!
