The Cyanide & Happiness Show Launches On Kickstarter

The popular web-comic rejected three TV deals in favor of producing their own online show.

The creators behind the ultra popular web comic Cyanide & Happiness have announced that they have formally rejected three television deals citing ‘lack of creative control’ as the reason.


Co-Creator Kris Wilson Announced On His Blog

We’re starting to realize that TV as an industry just isn’t compatible with what we want to do with our animation: deliver it conveniently to a global audience, something we’ve been doing all along with our comics these past eight years. That’s just the nature of television versus the Internet, I suppose.


“We instead want to create an online Cyanide & Happiness Show that you’ll be able to watch anywhere anytime.”


The Creators Have Opted To Raise Money For Production On Kickstarter Instead

No networks, no regional restrictions. We’ll be using Kickstarter to raise money for production. We firmly believe the entertainment industry is changing, and the Internet will eventually become the only way people watch shows. Especially the people that make up our awesome fanbase. The Internet is already the largest network, available when you think about it. Why go anywhere else?

By reading our comics over the years, you folks have given us the careers we dreamed of having as kids, and turned our silly cartoons into something much, much bigger than ourselves. The prospect of doing an uncensored, unaltered Cyanide & Happiness Show and giving it directly to the fans is an incredible opportunity. We’re really excited to see how far we can take things.
