SPORTS FRIENDS

SPORTS FRIENDS was our first series together, airing on Yahoo Screen for two seasons. The idea for the show came from BASEBALL FRIENDS, a cartoon Adam made in 2011 when he was just learning how to animate, featuring Ryan Howard and Chase Utley talking about hitting homeruns.

The cartoon made the rounds on Philly sports blogs and Adam followed it up with a couple more episodes and then BASKETBALL FRIENDS, featuring LeBron James and Dwyane Wade and two more BASEBALL FRIENDS. The show then was picked up by Yahoo Screen as SPORTS FRIENDS. After two seasons, Yahoo Screen moved away from short form and the show was canceled. 

The episodes have since disappeared from the internet but we’ve added them back to our vimeo and you can watch them here.
