I'm going to be making afew comics on this new character but I may actually consider making short toons about him as well. Heres the pitch of the idea.
Smog is a giant panda bear that lives in the Manhattan zoo, at night he sneaks from his cage and meets with the animals that live in Central Park and performs tasks for Don Stump, who is a fat pigeon with his feet cut off. Every week Don Stump will give Smog a task to complete by the end of the week to receive his pay, Smog dresses in human garbs to trick them into thinking he's a human himself to walk among the humans and perform his given task.
The comics are going to be executed as follows
Every day from Monday until Saturday, each day will be a one shot of Smog trying to perform his task and failing at it. Each day will state that Smog has learned something though his failures as a whim or crack at the one shot's visual situation. On Sunday, Smog will complete his task somehow and the panel will tell what Smog has learned throughout the week.
What do you guys think of this?
