Staff Bio - Eric Radomski (Cartoonist)

     Three-time Emmy Award winner Eric Radomski enters his second season as Producer of the hit Warner Bros. Animation series, “SHAGGY AND SCOOBY-DOO GET A CLUE!, the top-rated animated series within the Kids’ WB! Saturday morning lineup on The CW. Prior to taking the reins of the latest Scooby-Doo incarnation, Radomski was supervising producer of the popular animated series XIAOLIN SHOWDOWN, which airs on both Kids’ WB! and Cartoon Network.

     Radomski began his animation career in the early 80's as an Apprentice Animator at a small commercial studio in his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio. After two years animating in Ohio, Radomski headed west to join Rick Reinert Pictures and eventually became an Assistant Director on a variety of network and cable properties.

     In the early 90's Warner Bros. hired Radomski as a background stylist on Steven Spielberg's Emmy Award-winning "TINY TOON ADVENTURES." Soon to follow, Radomski was asked to develop and produce "BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES," eighty-five episodes later Eric won the first of three Emmy Awards. Radomski continued on with "BATMAN" producing and directing the critically acclaimed animated feature "MASK OF THE PHANTASM." Eric's also directed on Steven Spielberg's "FREAKAZOID" for which he received his second Emmy Award.

     Radomski's appetite for originality compelled him to seek new challenges outside of daytime animation, and what better place to call home than the late night world of HBO. Along with HBO executives Chris Albrecht, Carmi Zlotnik and Catherine Winder, HBO animation was born. Eric produced and directed two late night series for the trend setting cabler Todd McFarlane's hugely popular "SPAWN" for which Eric received his third Emmy Award for Individual Achievement in Animation, and "SPICY CITY" with the Godfather of adult animation, Ralph Bakshi.

    Prior to returning to Warner Bros. Animation, Radomski served Film Roman as Executive Creative Director, heading the company's restructured animation development efforts. Under his tenure, Radomski broadened Film Roman’s animation spectrum with a development slate that included some of the entertainment industry’s most recognized creators: projects such as Joss Whedon's "BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER", Mike Meyers "AUSTIN POWERS," Norman Lear's "TIL THE FAT LADY SINGS" and "DOOMSDAY" with Howard Stern. One of the Founders of Level13.net (Film Roman's Internet entertainment site) Radomski shepherded the attitude and direction of this innovative development venture, working closely with young creators from around the world discovering, developing, and producing unique and original properties outside the standard Hollywood model. Two short films developed and showcased on Level 13 were so successful that they secured series status with MTV and the Sci-Fi Channel.

     Radomski has five individual Emmy Nominations; twice nominated for the Annie Award and three times nominated for the Golden Reel Awards. One of his treasured nods is "Mindless Bob," a collaborative effort with "DEVO" founder Mark Mothersbaugh, for which Eric was awarded "Best Experimental Film" at the Brooklyn Film Festival.
