    Another fun fact, Eddie is the inspiration for Pinky from Pinky and the Brain. Pinky’s Narf came from a random saying he used to say.

    Upon seeing the animation style and character design, i believe the guy that cooked the short up want on to have a more successful show entitled, "The Wacky World of Tex Avery". And while the name suggests the famous animator, it's not about him. It just has the humor of the shorts, along with a cowboy character with the name, "Tex Avery".

    It was a stormy night in Texas. I was staying the night at my Memaw's house, and she was the type of old lady who would leave her TV on 24/7. I was very sheltered at the time (I was around 5-8 years old) and almost exclusively watched Veggie Tales, Jimmy Neutron, and classic cartoons on Boomerang. Before going to sleep on an air mattress in the living room I left the TV on Boomerang. I fall asleep and this cartoon's loud noises woke me up at some ungodly hour. This cartoon genuinely scarred me, as I never knew cartoons could be creepy at the time. Specifically the shot of his face after being mutilated and him saying "I'll apologize to the human!" I never watched it again until today, I am 21 and it obviously did not remotely sare me and I can even see its charm, but this short will always be one of the most scarring things for me, despite it not even being very creepy.

    Huh. I can't really see a cartoon like this being on cable ever again. Cartoons on cable are bought by the networks so I imagine that they tend to stick to the ones that are cheaper and faster to make. Especially with adult animation for some reason. (The quality on shows made for kids looks a lot better than adult cartoons sometimes.) This cartoon didn't exactly look cheap to make. I mean, the soundtrack is stock but the animation looks like it probably took a lot longer to make than say, an episode of Family Guy. (That's mostly due to it being hand drawn though.) Green Eggs and Ham looks fantastic though because it's hand drawn-to-digital, but it doesn't have the same influence as this cartoon did. (It's fucking beautiful looking though.) Also I don't think people will want to replicate John K.'s style ever again. Then again The Simpsons gave him two couch gags, but maybe they just don't know?

    When I was little I'd often sneak into my parents' bedroom at night when I was supposed to be asleep and watch Cartoon Network on their TV while they were still downstairs. Seeing this short all alone in a dark room sure was something. For the longest time I misremembered it as the worm plotting to kill the human by having him drink poison. I also remember being terrified that the worm was going to kill or beat his girlfriend.

It is very Ren and Stimpy style but yeah i can see that WB pulled in the reigns a bit. I can remember my parents finding out about ren and stimpy and then banning them from the TV lol but i always found a way to watch :P

    Ok, several things to note here. Firstly, I didn't know this cartoon was a thing. I do see the similarities to Ren & Stimpy, even though I never saw any episodes (I was born in 1998). However, Ren & Stimpy was still famous/infamous enough for me to know a little bit about it. I just wish I didn't know about Adult Party Cartoon. Secondly, the title, "Tales of Worm Paranoia", sounds like a weird anthology series. If this cartoon was ever greenlit, it could have been presented as an experimental anthology series, with a different story being told each episode. I think Johnny and Sally (Johnny's girlfriend) could be seen somewhere in the episodes, too, like somewhere in the background, doing whatever the plot needs them to do. In this way, every episode would be tied back to the original cartoon via Johnny and Sally. Thirdly, while I did watch plenty of the classic Looney Tunes as a kid, I didn't see many shorts directed by Bob Clampett. I feel like I missed out on some crazy stuff. Lastly, if you"re wondering where I got the name "Sally" for Johnny's girlfriend, I watched the cartoon. It is here on IRmys, and if you like this short and/or Ren & Stimpy, I recommend you watch it. #talesofwormparanoia

    I think ToWP has to be the one one-off cartoon (ie, one that never gained a series) that I always enjoyed the most. You can easily tell the influence by other cartoons such as Ren & Stimpy... which was always a favourite of mine too.

    I rediscovered What-A-Cartoon a few years back. Its weird to think Im still watching some creators that made cartoons when I was a child too young to really be entertained outside of funny faces and sight gags. The one that really gets me is Seth MacFarlane's Larry and Steve. Just about every character hes made is present in that short in some way. Its weird finding cartoons familiar, but no actually memory of them. I miss the consistency through inconsistency in cartoons. Cartoons cleaned up the lines and stopped being as loose with fun. It is arguably a good thing, but even my children prefer watching my old dvds of ed, edd, and eddy, invader zim, grim adventures of billy and mandy, KND, and a few other picks of my childhood favorites. They got really into KND. Caught them in the act of pretending to be agents.
