Howdy there, Scream Freaks! It’s not always easy to think of stuff to post in this blog every week, but we happen to be inspired by something one of you said to us recently and wanted to share our thoughts on it. A loyal Scream Freak saw the latest Screaming Soup! episode, told us how much they enjoyed it, but then expressed some frustration that took us by surprise.

In a nutshell, they were baffled at how little of a following we have so far, and are even more perplexed at the low number of views our videos have for something they think is such great quality.

We of course responded to the comment, but wanted to expand on our feelings a little more in the blog here. First and foremost we make Screaming Soup! for fun as artists who are compelled to create, and channel that energy through our love for all things horror and animation. We’ve essentially taken everything we’ve ever enjoyed from comics to toys and videogames and brought all that together in what we think is a cool concept for an entertaining show we regularly invite others to enjoy with us.

Now, most everybody wants to make a living doing what they love, and we’re no different. We dream of the day our labor of love could hit big and elevate us somehow from living paycheck to paycheck to a means of supporting our families comfortably. We want to see Screaming Soup! popular enough to be the next Mystery Science Theater 3000 or Monstervision for the 21st century, achieving a milestone as the first fully animated horror host (that we’re aware of) in history. We’d love to have a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles explosion of success and launch a Screaming Soup! brand with Deadwest action figures, Billy plushies, TPMummy Halloween costumes, etc. Of course all that’s heavily dependent on a demanding fan base, and we’re doing our best to get the word out about our show to as many horror fans as we can on a daily basis through Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, Channel Awesome, and Youtube crossovers.

But until that boom of life altering success happens, we’re just ambitious artists happy to be making wild, gross, and x-rated horror toons while shooting the shit about movies, and are deeply grateful for the fans we have gained so far who believe in our show and characters as much as we do. Thank you. So, keep your fangs crossed, dream big, but in the meantime . . . have fun!

Other than that, be sure to catch up on Screaming Soup! Seasons 1-2 after watching the latest Season 3 episodes, check out this week’s Howl’n Hottie, read recent reviews for the newer horror films we’re watching in our R-Rated Reviews blog, and help us get the word out about the web’s #1 animated horror host show!
