Early work[edit]

Adam Reed and his partner Matt Thompson started out at Cartoon Network doing various odd jobs until they came up with their own show called High Noon Toons in the mid-90s. High Noon Toons was a 3-hour programming block of cartoons hosted by cowboy hand puppets Haas and Lil' Jo (a Bonanza pun). While working on this show, Matt and Adam were usually heavily intoxicated and the two eventually got reprimanded for lighting one of the prop sets on fire.[3]
