Our favorite Australian animator Michael Cusack finally makes his debut on The Create Unknown to talk about his hit new Adult Swim show, “YOLO: Crystal Fantasy,” based on animated shorts that put him on the YouTube map back in 2012.


Oh, and if you haven’t seen the show yet, you’re seriously missing out. Check out the first two episodes here: https://www.adultswim.com/videos/yolo-crystal-fantasy


Michael has made Koala Man, Damo & Darren, and the Rick & Morty's "Bushworld Adventures." He knows humor -- but what does a comedic genius think is funny? Not only do we find that out, but we also conclude why things are funny in the first place and how the high school experience plays into it all.


Then we venture into Michael’s storied career as an animator and how he got to where he is now. He tells us about how his inspiration to make animation on YouTube actually came from a short he saw on Vimeo, and how that all eventually spiraled into his beautiful partnership with friend of the show Psychicpebbles -- the Co-Creator of Adult Swim's “Smiling Friends.” Then we cap off the career talk by discussing Michael’s new show, “YOLO: Crystal Fantasy,” spawned straight from his short series on YouTube.


Michael flexes his artistic talent by creating a pitch for his next hit show: Mr. Bluegal. It’s a heart-wrenching story of civil war in the town of Goblagoo, Australia, which only has a couple dozen people. Even so, it's set to have a grand finale to end all finales.


Then our patrons ask Michael about the fate of “Smiling Friends.” Will there be more episodes? Will we see Charlie and Pim again? We also find out about Michael’s near-fatal Subway wound? And lastly, Michael reveals his Aussie-inspired fursona.


Thanks to all our patrons who keep the show going, and thanks again to Michael for joining us!
