As I continue to plan out the cartoon I’ll probably never make because I’m too busy and lazy and untalented, I’m having trouble deciding what kind of cartoon it should be. Should it be one of those continuous story cartoons, in which there’s an entire “season” that has an overarching story? With those, you can really build up the story, but viewers have to watch the shows in order to completely understand what’s going on. Or should each episode be a self-contained story?

You have already stated your decision of producing self-contained episodes. It wouldn’t make much sense to try and produce a “season” if you don’t find yourself motivated to do so. If anything, this will give you a nice hobby to conform to, much like your poorly drawn comics (which I enjoy and derive ideas from as well.) If you do decide to work on a cartoon, you can use this as a opportunity to evolve what you have learned in your animation classes.

Thanks for comment! That’s a good point; with self-contained episodes, it will be easier to quit or take a break if I get less interested in the work or just get too busy with other things. And, definitely, I want to try using what I’ve learned in my animation classes and applying it to 2D, though it’s sure to be quite “cheap” looking. I’m extremely lousy at drawing, but I’m hoping I can create some very simple character designs, as they did with such cartoons as Dexter’s Lab and Powerpuff Girls…
