Read an interview with Compost Brite (Erica Doering).

Description

Imagine a world where a children’s show has a cast of characters that have more psychological disorders than you… Add the mind numbing debauchery of the worst, most poorly animated cartoons from the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s… Throw in the wry commentary you came to love from Mystery Science Theater 3000, and what have you got? Cartoon Dump!

The unholy alliance of noted author, producer and cartoon scholar Jerry Beck and writer/ producer/ comedian Frank Conniff (TV’s Frank from Mystery Science Theater 3000). Hosted by Erica Doering as Compost Brite, Cartoon Dump! boasts a beguiling cast of characters who will bring laughter and joy into the hearts of borderline schizophrenics and catatonic acidheads the world over.

Starring Erica Doering, Kathleen Roll, Joe Keys and Eddie Pepitone.

And featuring J. Elvis Weinstein or Joel Hodgson as “Dumpster Diver Dan” and Frank Conniff as “Moodsy, the Clinically Depressed Owl”
