Homestar Stays on the Web

Homestar Runner Rejects TV to Stay True to Web

It seems like a foregone conclusion that the hit online animation Homestar Runner and his cartoon friends will end up alongside Meatwad, Space Ghost, Brock Sampson and the other pop culture icons on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim -- a block of cartoons for grownups.

Unfortunately for this would-be marriage, the only people who think Homestar isn't quite right for Adult Swim are the character's creators, Matt and Mike Chapman.

In perhaps a first, the Atlanta-based Chapman brothers have turned down both Comedy Central and Cartoon Network to stay on the web.

Wow. I guess money DOESN'T mean everything. The Brothers Chap keep their hip Flash cartoon off of TV and on the web so they don't ruin the character of it. Classy. I guess it is time to watch Strong Bad read his e-mail.

I used to watch adult swim frequently. I liked that dishy princess on Drawn Together.

They probably wouldn't be making that much more money then they are now. Cable doesn't pay, and first time show creators generally get screwed, unless they are also the producers.
