ARG! studio news

The ARG! studio has a contract to produce a half-hour TV special, an "all ARG!" episode of the syndicated independent film showcase Sprockets & Splices. It will be hosted by ARG! founder Artie Romero's character Artie Stick along with the Splice Girls, and broadcast on independent stations in over 100 U.S. cities. The show will also be seen worldwide on Roku TV. As of this writing, we are adding a new Artie Stick cartoon to the show, "Mad Scientist Plot," a six-minute sci-fi spoof loosely based on Romero's 1977 comic book story. Special thanks to producer Joel Stephens for this opportunity!
