Also, "Wolf Tracer Studios" is such an unfortunate name as well. Thinking about it more, I can kinda see how it might have sounded cool to some people at the time—it almost sounds like the name of some badass action hero, or film noir private eye—but my initial reaction was that it sounds more like a snarky term for untalented furry artists. Like, "He's just one of those wolf-tracers."

What gets to me is that the investors didn't see any footage until after it aired, although before it was finished one of the animators walked up to the investor and told him he was getting ripped off.

That lead to him getting fired before it was finished, which meant the remaining two animators had to work overtime to get the special done on time.

Also one of the crew members had this cup made:

Also, dear lord, they only had 4 months to complete the special. The production was so rushed they didn't have time to do any storyboards and had to go straight to the animation. Yeesh.

She's basically Mushmouth from The Cosby Kids. I don't know why people couldn't believe they would do that on purpose. It's probably the one genuinely entertaining thing about the special.
While at it, the writer of the article shared excerpts from the script, confirming this is how it was written:

This whole cartoon is great. I love Papa Bear's reaction to this.

Something that occurred to me is that, for all we make fun of Dingo Pictures, we don't actually know much about the company itself, or who's behind it.

As it turns out, it's because there's very little information about the company, and what little is out there is hard to verify. That didn't stop a few people from giving it a shot, tho

There's also a Russian YouTuber that traveled to Germany and actually went to the last-known address of the Dingo HQ, which turned out to be some house in Friedrichsdorf. The mailbox with the name was still there:

The heck?

giving me strong vibes of the audiophile record label which always bragged about how great it was that turned out to be a P.O. Box rented from a postage shop

I imagine Dingo never had a huge crew to begin with, although the exact number of people involved is a mystery.

Gotta say, "Hartland", a 1980s comic strip, looks very, very, VERY familiar.

Even the lettering is similar.

Looked the artist up. He's a kids book illustrator now.

I actually like his current style. It's almost hard to believe it's the same artist.
