    Well, it's done. My very own internet comic is finished. I call it Rebusquest. A funny and educational series about a magic land where rebus puzzles are a part of life. With my new site, I hope to make cartoons that will bring back the spirit of classic Saturday morning shows.

    Hey Cullen,

    I just got through reading through all of episode one, and I have to say, I'm really liking this so far; you're right, it is fun and educational, and there's some genuine humor to it too, I like the running gags with Reba in getting Carson's name wrong, and the peanut butter milkshakes while she's lactose intolerant with peanut allergies.

    I can't help but wonder if your webcomic is also modeled just slightly after Rocky and Bullwinkle with the continuing storylines, subtle wordplay and the puns?

    Either way, I like what I'm reading, and I can't wait for the story to continue!

    Thank you for reading and commenting Snowthy. :) I'm glad you liked what I worked so hard on to draw and post. I got Carson's wrong name joke from when Big Bird used to mispronounce Mr. Hooper's name. And Reba's favorite treat are peanut butter milkshakes and she can't help herself from wanting them despite her allergies.

    And yes, I did get my inspiration from Rocky and Bullwinkle and those other neat variety cartoon series like the Cattanooga Cats, Tennessee Tuxedo and his Tales, Yogi Bear, and Uncle Croc's Block. I plan to create two more cartoon series to show alongside Rebusquest. But RQ will be the main cartoon of my website.

    Thanx again and I'll start working on my next cartoon now. :)

    Just finished reading the new Rebusquest episode, and eet vos voondurbahr!

    Really does remind me of all those classic old video and arcade games from the 80s, lol. I used to love the original Super Mario Bros. and Legend of Zelda (even though I could NEVER beat Death Mountain, and after watching a walkthrough on YouTube makes me wish I still had my old NES so I could give it another try, lol). Oh, and I should mention the very subtle Kermit reference was awesome too!

    Thank you for those kind words, Snowthy. I always wanted to do a cartoon about classic 80's video game characters and Rebusquest gave me my chance. :)

    Yeah, Zelda was a tough game to get through, which was why I needed an instruction book to find those hidden caves otherwise I'd never finish the game. And all the Mario games were fun. Especially Super Mario 2.

    And I just had to put a Muppet reference in my cartoon. I also always wondered if Kermit likes the game, Frogger. :)

    Guess what? Rebusquest now has it's official theme song. My good friend, Heather Ferreira, has written and performed the theme song for Rebusquest. It's very beautiful and it describes my feelings for my cartoon. You can listen to it here and read the lyrics.

    I think it's just plain sad I'm apparently the only one following your great 'toons Cullen. :(

    But still, looking forward to this one, as always! :D

    Thank you, Snowthy, for being a loyal reader and enjoying the world of my cartoons.

    I too wonder why no one else on here comments Rebusquest. When I created RQ, I was inspired by the classic and sometimes scary cartoons of old Sesame Street mixed with the word puzzle solving skills of The Electric Company. I sure wish more people on MC would give it a chance, just like you have, Snowthy. :)

    Well, my creative endeavors seem to have lost interest as well... I've done some miniscule little filler vids with Steve D'Monster on YouTube, and hardly anybody has watched them... the latest one with Jennifer's shaving cream prank has been up a week now and only has like 45 views, and all of the compilations that were created specifically for my new channel have been up for months and still have under 100 views each... matter of fact, I don't really get any feedback from anybody anymore, so it's hard to know whether or not ideas for projects and such are a good idea since nobody is giving me their opinions.
