If you're a fan of the cartoon shows X-Men, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Sonic the Hedgehog, James Bond, Jr... now you can own actual episode scripts!
Hi. I’m Francis Moss
I’ve written and story-edited hundreds of hours of dozens of the top animated shows. In addition to the ones above, I've worked on The New Adventures of He-Man, The Care Bears, Iron Man, and many others.
Over the years, I'd saved my outlines, scripts, writers' bibles and other material from the shows I'd written. They were sitting in my garage in boxes. I was thinking about sending them to recycling. Then I got a letter from a fan who was introducing his son to what had been his favorite show, Challenge of the Gobots. He knew I'd written for the show (courtesy of my website WWW.FRANCISMOSS.COM) and asked if I had any scripts or other show memorabilia. I dug up a storyboard out one of those boxes, made a copy and sent it to him (the jerk never even sent me a thank-you email! I hope his kid learns better manners from his mom.).
I'm still getting fan letters from parents who are now introducing their children to She-ra, Princess of Power, or Exo-Squad. And I get them from folks who watched the show when they were young, and now have the chance to watch them all over again, courtesy of their local DVD store.
I began looking at those boxes of scripts, outlines, show bibles and artwork with a new eye. "There've got to be more fans of these old shows," I thought. "How do I find out?"
This is me, finding out.
Are you looking for just the right gift for that cartoon fan? Or maybe you’ve got a favorite from one the great kids’ shows of the 80s and 90s. I’ve got the just the thing for you: Original production scripts from some of the best television cartoons of all times.
“So what?” You say. “They’re all over the web. I can get all the scripts I want – for nothing.”
Sure you can… if all you want are inaccurate and badly transcribed dialog scripts or poor quality copies of copies of copies.
Not these cartoon scripts.
These cartoon scripts are individually scanned & freshly-printed from high-quality digital files. They are exact reproductions of the actual scripts used in the making of the top kids’ cartoons. They are in standard screenplay format—no scripts that I offer are ever incorrectly formatted on the page.
Some of them have story editor’s and producer‘s notes. Several are 2nd or 3rd drafts, with asterisks marking changes. Each and every animated show script is spiral bound in an attractive vinyl cover, and printed on 8.5x11" white paper.
And each and every cartoon script is signed by the writer – me.
I’ve also got a few scripts that I wrote with my long-time writing partner, Ted Pedersen. If we co-wrote them, they are signed by both of us.
Just click on the links to the right for more information on what I have available. If you don't see what you want, it might be arriving soon, so check back often.
… AND MORE!
In addition to the cartoon scripts, story premises and outlines I’ve written, I have some rare cartoon show bibles, pilot scripts and storyboards, a few for shows you’ve might never have heard of (Moo Mesa or Stunt Dawgs anyone?). If didn’t write them, they’re unsigned.
Whether you’d like these cartoon scripts as gifts or for your own collection, they make a really good mini-course in how to write an animated show. You can study the creative and writing process from the first germ of an idea for an episode, through the outline and to the first and final drafts of the scripts.
Now, order your very own script from a TV show you’ve grown up with, or your kids have grown up with.
Note: Not all the items are listed yet, but I'm working on it. But I've got the scripts (mostly) listed. If you see one you want, or if you know of one I've written that's not here, contact me. I'm still going through the vaults.
