Animation Resources
In our recent podcast, Animation Resources’ Programming Director, Davey Jarrell hosts a broad reaching look at the history of cartooning in both the Western world and Asia. Nearly two decades in the making, this podcast is perhaps the most important resource we’ve ever shared. Along with Danny Young and Michael Woodside, Animation Resources president, Stephen Worth traces the breadcrumbs of cartoon history back from the present day to the 15th century… and then with the help of Davey Jarrell, Stephen traces the history of Japanese cartooning from the 12th century back up to the present day. Make sure to listen to the podcast, and then join us Sunday for a discussion about it.

Animated Discussions 010 / Hosted by Davey Jarrell with Stephen Worth, Danny Young & Michael Woodside

NewNewHave you ever dreamed of traveling the world and going back in time in a time machine to find out when cartoons began? Well climb aboard this very special episode of Animated Discussions. We’re going to do just that!

By tracing the branches of history, we can see the outlines of what cartooning is and where it came from. Best of all, learning about the artists from the past will inspire cartoonists to take back their art form and build on the incredible foundation they built for us.

You won’t want to miss this podcast. Take notes and google names you hear us talk about. You’ll find lots of wonderful things to research that will change the way you think about cartooning.

Animation Resources is one of the best kept secrets in the world of cartooning. Every month, we sponsor a program of interest to artists, and every other month, we share a book and up to an hour of rare animation with our members. If you are a creative person interested in the fields of animation, cartooning or illustration, you should be a member of Animation Resources!


Davey Jarell is a member of the Board of Directors of Animation Resources. He is a professional storyboard artist for television and acts as our Director of Programs.
