Shut Up Cartoons Sends Up Saturday Morning Kids Shows with ‘Just Shut Up!’

/ Jul 15, 2013

Alloy Digital and Smosh have launched a new morning-style kids show on Shut Up Cartoons, their animated programming channel on YouTube.

Just Shut Up!” parodies morning kids shows like “Romper Room” and “Captain Kangaroo.” And since it comes from Smosh, the show is armed with a comedic sensibility that is more appropriate for the duo’s teenage audience.

The show features three hosts: Andy (played by Doug Hurley), his assistant Miss Wendy (Stevie Wilson), and their sidekick, Mr. Squirrel (Shannon Holmes). In each episode, the hosts attempt to teach a valuable life lesson to the in-studio audience (comprised of young kids). This lesson is then, without variance, derailed by Mr. Squirrel, a talking squirrel described as a foul-mouthed lunatic with no “off-button.” Obviously, Mr. Squirrel is the kids’ favorite.

The onstage antics are broken up by a series of animated shorts, which also feature jokes not intended for children. “Just Shut Up!” also has some docu-style humor: the camera will sometimes cut to one of the hosts (in the first episode it’s Miss Wendy) after something weird happens onstage.

New episodes will be released at 12pm PT every Saturday.

Update: “Just Shut Up!” is executive produced by Jordan Allen-Dutton, a three-time Emmy-nominated TV writer who has written for Adult Swim’s “Robot Chicken.” Additional producing credits go to head writers Steven Murphy and Peter Meadows. The show is directed by Pete Levin and shot on-site at YouTube Space LA, with animation courtesy of SpastikChuwawa.

Shut Up Cartoons received funding from YouTube as part of the video site’s original channels initiative.

Here’s the first episode, which includes a guest appearance from Smosh’s Ian Hecox. Future episode will feature the other half of Smosh, Anthony Padilla (second episode), and Ryan Higa (third episode).
