    Hey! I normally don’t really give a shit when you guys make a minor factual error with something you say on the show, and I imagine neither do you. :)

    But you know what a pedant I can be about Star Wars shit, so I feel compelled to clarify a couple things about the Clone Wars series, since you *almost* got it right, but not exactly…

    The Clone Wars Micro Series was released in 2005 and 2006, and was produced and created by Genndy Tartakovsky, the guy who brought us Samurai Jack, Dexter’s Laboratory, and Power Puff Girls, among other things. These brief, 3-4 minute episodes aired between regular programs on Cartoon Network, and were made strictly with traditional hand-drawn cell-animation, in the style of the other cartoons mentioned above.

    Based on the overwhelming success of these episodes, Lucasfilm decided to make a full-blown regular TV series. In 2008, this TV series was kicked off by a feature-length film which premiered in hundreds of theaters across the country. Shortly thereafter, the TV show began airing weekly on Cartoon Network. This feature-length film is the movie that was referred to by the guy answering the Five Questions. This movie, and all the subsequent TV shows, were done in fully 3D-modeled CGI, and have a totally different look than the “Micro Series” episodes made by Tartakovsky in ’05-’06.

    Does that all make sense? I hope I cleared it up for you… :)

      Wow, I totally botched my own pedantry. The original Micro Series came out in 2003- 2005. Oops.

      (Is there a way to edit comments? I’m sorry if there is, but I didn’t see it…)
