Pendleton Ward

Biography

Screenwriter and animator most widely known as the originator of Toon Network series Experience Period. Ward stepped down from working the present in its 5th season. Motivated by his mom, who caused animators, he started making his very own flipbooks within the initial grade. In another of his initial professional tasks, he developed a webcomic known as Bueno the Keep; while he quickly scrapped his task, a lot of his internet site and social media marketing handles continued to be “buenobear.” He was raised in San Antonio, Tx with his mom, Betty. He researched at Cal Arts alongside J.G. Quintel, who afterwards created the standard Show.

#Quote
1It's an art to perfect the best kind of fart joke. You can't too gross, because then it's not a joke, it's disgusting.and it's better when it's hidden. Like when Princess Bubblegum comes into the last scene, there's a 'whoo' noise. No one really ever gets that one but me.
2Sometimes we'll forget it's called 'Adventure Time' and just write whatever we want. Just like sitting and talking to bugs and being mopey and then maybe humming a tune - that kind if stuff. I think everyone feels what they're watching; envy one is empathizing with the characters. And my favorite way to feel is calm.
