Waterman is an animated web series created by Bryan Waterman. The first episode of the series was released on Newgrounds on August 21, 2003, which quickly became popular, being viewed over 327,000 times. The series became a hit, and a total of eight more episodes (and a movie in production) have since been produced. The nine Waterman episodes have been viewed 1.2 million times on Newgrounds alone. Like the TV show Family Guy, the show uses cutaway jokes. The Waterman cast and characters have also guest starred in an episode of the webtoon Bonus Stage, drawn in that series house style and episode three of another webtoon ICONS created by Braintree Studios. A film based on the series is currently in development hell.

The cartoons of Waterman on Waterman Studios are not the original versions. At the beginning of 2006, Waterman went back and edited the older cartoons to avoid copyright infringements. Waterman also added new content to the older episodes.
Puppets In The Park

Stretchy Dog is an animated children's show created by Abbie Davies and produced by Waterman Studios. The project was first announced on the official Waterman Studios blog on March 16, 2007. The series centres around Stretchy Dog and his friends. On a blog posted on January 26, 2008, it was announced that the pilot episode has been fully completed, and that they now plan on pitching the show to Nick Jr.. Some clips of the show's pilot can be found here.
Because of the success of Waterman and Puppets In The Park, Waterman Studios has become very popular. Waterman Studios uses music by Reel Big Fish for the series Waterman. Waterman Studios has also produced several other non-animated videos, such as Celebrity Interviews and Who Wants To Be A Pictionary Millionaire.
The above-statement is something of an over-embellishment. Waterman Studios, like many other aspiring Internet production companies, fizzled out while on the brink of greatness. Apathy and the overall feeling of hopelessness rose above all else, and instead of rising to the challenge, they simply stopped caring enough to push through.
Production companies ascend peaks and travel through valleys. Pick yourselves up by the bootstraps and carry on! The only thing keeping you from finishing the Waterman movie is YOU! Get out there and do this, it's what Ready Espinosa would do, and what Leslie Nielsen would have wanted!
