Just before Season 3 is set to begin we have a short chat with Meghan McCarthy from Big Shiny Robot. They don’t mention exactly when or where it took place, but there’s some interesting stuff in there. Check it out here if you want to take a look.
But there really is no secret to the show’s widespread appeal; McCarthy simply credits the show’s quality. “If you are into animation or design, you’re going to enjoy the show no matter what.” She gives high accolades to her staff and implies that the show is hard work, but always a labor of love.
