After going through a few thousand emails and a lot of twitching, I updated Germaine again. Here's what's happening. I'm advancing the whole "Bald & Fat Germaine" storyline by 2 years. So every script having to deal with Germaine being bald, & her weight issues and so forth have been ripped out of the series. Since folks don't have the patience for story and sub-plot. I'm just gonna get rid of it. The unused stories and scripts will be put into a comic book / graphic novel at a later time. The basic concept was to have Germaine, revolt against society, shave her head, gain a bunch of weight, have some sort of self-awakening, and eventually, accept herself as a person with the nifty and all powerful wisdom of Foamy! Eventually, Germaine was always going to return to her normal self, maybe with a few extra pounds, but I don't really want to have fans sit through two years of it. If I had more animators or something I could churn out all the cartoons like a mill and have the story progress faster. But after 8 years or whatever, I'm still the only one doing everything. So I guess some comprimises have to be made. Most fans of the show will be happy that the whole fat/bald Germaine will be ditched sooner than later, and that's cool. Just irks me in a way because I wont be able to deliver the story the way I wanted to. I'll get to work on the graphic novel after the next DVD is finished. New Germaine cartoons start in September.
