RevealingCartoons started out life in the 6th grade as a school project. Every year my school would hold an event where students would write stories and they would put the books out for everyone to read. I decided to write a nonfiction book about cartoon "scandals" (the word I chose to describe things in animated media that is considered inappropriate in otherwise family friendly material). The book was called, Revealing Cartoons: A Collection of Cartoon Scandals. It caused a big stir within the school faculty because of its content (in hindsight, I should have realized). They refused to put it out on the day of the event and made me keep it in a manila envelope at all times on campus.
Word of the "risqué book" got around to student's parents and soon I was asked to show it to a small group of them. They thought it was fine and even found it funny.
I left the school soon after this.
Although this happened, the topic continued to be an interest of mine and figured it would translate well into a website (that I worked on and off with for years), along with other trivia, facts, and history about animation. It's run as a hobby.
