Development

Conception

According to Alexandra Bender (AmazzonKane), a YouTuber and a fan of the series. The creators of KaBlam! approached Joanna Ferrone and Sue Rose to create a skit, instead of Angela Anaconda they initially pitched a show called: "Family Values" but they rejected the idea because it was too mature and lengthy. The studio sent them a box with the typical skits of KaBlam! on DVD's, examples are: Sniz and Fondue, Life With Loopy, Prometheus and Bob and The Off-Beats. The one they liked most was Sniz and Fondue. They went to the studio again to pitch a show but this time Angela Anaconda, which was greenlit, and two shorts were made. After the two shorts were made, Joanna Ferrone and Sue Rose were pitching their shows to different production company's. Eventually, the show was picked up by Decode Entertainment.

Production

On the first day of production, face models were hired and brought into the studio, To capture their faces from each angle, And each frame of a mouth movement to simulate lip-synching. Each picture were put in Avid's Elastic Reality's software and then animated using "Houdini"

Trivia

  • Season 3 only had 13 episodes, compared to the usual 26.
  • When Fox Family became ABC Family, the show was regulated to less popular time slots before being cancelled altogether within months.
  • For the character animations, they got a model to come in and they took about 30 pictures for each mouth movement they could have possibly needed. They used different face models for most of the main characters; an exception was the episode 'French Connection' where Angela and Nanette Manoir's faces were recycled to make their respective foreign exchange student counterparts.
  • For a while, it was very common for people to believe that the show was being owned by DHX Media was what prevented Nicktoons from airing the two KaBlam! episodes with the original Angela Anaconda shorts in reruns. This was debunked in the early 2010s when the creator of another KaBlam! short revealed on a (now defunct) fansite that Viacom still owns the two original shorts, just nothing else. The episodes continued to air in reruns on Nick even after the short was spun-off on Fox Family.
  • The first entire season of the series has been added to Hulu.
