The Most Viewed Cartoon Brew Posts of 2013

A few days ago, I shared some of my favorite Cartoon Brew posts from the past year. Today, we reveal the top 30 posts of 2013 based on the number of pageviews each post received. In other words, don’t blame us—you clicked on it!

The top three most-clicked posts of the year suggest the unpredictability of the animation community’s tastes: business, sex, and high culture, one right after the other. The overall list, however, is a surprisingly well-balanced portrait of Cartoon Brew’s content, and includes coverage of new animated projects (The Wind Rises, Wander Over Yonder, Frozen, Steven Universe), issues related to artists’ rights, historical finds, industry/business commentary, and some geeky cartoon kerfuffles. And one post made both our favorites and most-trafficked lists: “Max Headroom and the Strange World of Pseudo-CGI.” It’s from our thoughtful British correspondent, Neil Emmett.

And now, let’s begin our peek into the hive mind of the animation universe:
