Christmas in Tattertown

Excerpt From ‘Unfiltered’ p.217 – - Jon M. Gibson & Chris McDonnell

Ralph began production on Christmas in Tattertown , a loose adaptation of his Junktown comic strips, and the first original animated special created for Nickelodeon.  “Tattertown was going to be a revitalization of cartoon style from the ’20s and ’30s,’”Ralph explains.  “It was gonna have Duke Ellington and Fats Waller jazzing up the soundtrack.  We were trying something different – discarded ideals, misfit technology – but a series didn’t make sense.  It just didn’t work.”    Execs were eager to pick up the series for 39 episodes, but echoes of Wildmon’s badgering led to a name change (“junk” was 80s slang for heroin) and ultimate abandonment.
