It’s Like Nothing and Everything You’ve ever Seen before.
Now is a golden age for adult cartoons. Family Guy, Bob’s Burgers, Rick and Morty, and Bojack Horseman are popular shows that parody classic premises and characters in pop culture. Codename: Blank is a podcast made for people who love shows with a meta twist. It takes the familiar and twists it into something strange and unique.
A Search for identity
Many millennial adults and Gen Z teens understand the complex search for identity and purpose in an ever-changing world. The characters of Howard Blank and Johnny Taco reflect the struggle of many young adults. They ask themselves who they are and what their purpose is and if they’ll ever be able to find love. The process of finding oneself is transformative for any person, and as Howard and Johnny go on their journey, the audience goes with them to seek friendship, redemption, change, love, and happiness.
A Quest for Redemption
The villains of Codename: Blank are presented as three-dimensional characters with wants and needs beyond just doing what is evil or mean. Each villain, no matter how nasty they get, has the opportunity to be rehabilitated and brought back into society. The purpose of this series is to show that even villains from shows like Batman or Johnny Quest have the chance to become good people. Over the course of the series, Howard and Johnny will befriend many of their enemies and start to work with them as their new allies against evil. No matter how dark the series gets, Codename: Blank keeps an optimistic tone. In the end, good will win.
