James Garland Quintel,[1] or simply known as J.G. Quintel (pronounced Quin-tell),[2] is the creator of Regular Show. He was born on September 13, 1982.[1] He also voices Mordecai and Hi Five Ghost. He has worked with other shows on Cartoon Network such as The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack, Camp Lazlo, and Adventure Time. (Ocean of Fear)[3]

Early life

Quintel was born on September 13, 1982 to his mother Terri Morris, and his father, James Allen (born on 3/5/1952)[4] in the Kings County of California.[1] He also eventually would have a younger brother, Payton Dean (born on 7/11/1984),[5] who enjoys playing bass guitar. The brothers bonded by using Lego men and crude paper cutouts to create several short film projects for school, noting that this was a different approach compared to others who used dioramas, presentation boards and writing papers.[6] Quintel also attended art classes as a child.[7]

Growing up he watched quite a few cartoons that he claimed helped inspire him to make his own cartoon: The Simpsons, Beavis and Butt-Head, Rocko's Modern Life, The Ren & Stimpy Show, The Smurfs, He-Man, Transformers, G.I. Joe, Ghostbusters, Inspector Gadget, DuckTales, Animaniacs, Batman: The Animated Series, TailSpin, Bobby's World and other cartoons made by Warner Bros. and Disney.[8]

As a teenager, he would attend high school in Hanford, California in 1997, and graduated shortly after May 2000.[9]

After high school, Quintel attended the California Institute of the Arts, also known as "CalArts", as part of a summer program. However, it wasn't as easy to attend afterwards. He was not accepted at first, causing him to feel "a bit depressed". He would attend two other colleges, College of the Sequoias and College of the Canyons in the meantime while trying to get accepted in CalArts.[10] He would eventually be accepted in. Eventually, J.G. obtained an internship at Cartoon Network studio to work on the Star Wars: Clone Wars television series.[6] J.G. had originally wanted to be an animator, but when he learned how much work it involved he decided to focus more on being a storyboard artist.[7]

Other shows and movies

In the past, J.G. Quintel has worked on numerous other television shows and movies such as: The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack, Phineas and Ferb, Adventure Time, Star Wars: Clone Wars, Camp Lazlo, Horton Hears a Who, 2 In the AM PM and The Naïve Man From Lolliland.

Career

College films

One of his first films as an animator was in "2 in the AM PM". It is notably much more vulgar than Regular Show, including swearing and drug use, but it does have some of the same character ideas and voices as in Regular Show. Quintel later entered 2 in the AM PM at the 2007 Spike & Mike's Sick and Twisted Festival of Animation.[11] Another film he made was "The Naive Man from Lolliland" in which Sam Marin voiced all of the characters, including the waiter and a prototype Pops. This short was made from a draw of adding words in a hat, with whatever word someone got they had to make a short based on that word. Quintel received "lollipop", thus creating the Lolliland short.[10] Lolliland later won an award at the Nicktoons Film Festival.[12] J.G. also planned to create another short film in college (which was where the Mordecai character was created), but the short was never completed. The plot was about animals escaping from a zoo.[7] Rigby was created after Quintel drew a raccoon on a post-it note while working on Flapjack.[10] While still attending CalArts, he worked as a storyboard artist on Camp Lazlo.[9]

Flapjack and Regular Show

After graduating from CalArts in 2006, he worked as an animator in the credits of the 2008 movie Horton Hears a Who! and as storyboard artist on the Phineas and Ferb episode, "Jerk de Soleil".

He has worked with Thurop Van Orman (of The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack fame) and Pendleton Ward (of Adventure Time fame) at least once. He was a regular crew member on Flapjack and helped write the Adventure Time episode, "Ocean of Fear", before leaving to work on his own creation: Regular Show.

Quintel created Regular Show as a short and potential series for Cartoonstitute, a show that showed shorts by people who wanted to try to get a show picked up, similar to What a Cartoon!. He used the characters from his college films to make the short.[7] Original titles considered for the show included Normal Show and Weird Show, with J.G. deciding the latter was "too on the nose."[10] Although Quintel thought the show lacked commercial appeal, the show was nonetheless greenlit in 2009.[12][13]

When J.G. was asked what the influences for the show were, he replied: "I grew up on The Simpsons. I also really liked Rocko’s Modern Life and I was lucky enough to work on Camp Lazlo as well. Some of the stylistic elements of those shows worked their way into my style. The round eyes, the Muppet-looking characters, these were elements that I grew up with and studied at school."[7]

After being asked what he plans in the future, Quintel answered: "I want to keep going with Regular Show. Then eventually, I’d like to make another show. I’ll probably take a big break, catch my breath, then start looking around and try to develop something new."[7]

Boarded episodes

Quintel notes that he had storyboarded episodes more often in the first two seasons, but as the other storyboard artists had adjusted more to the setting and drawing the characters and more were hired, he began storyboarding less as a result. Nonetheless, he still oversees production on the show and is still a member of the writing staff.[14] The episode Quintel storyboarded can be viewed below.

Voice credits

Quintel provides the voice of Mordecai, and uses his regular speaking voice to voice him.[15] When asked why he made the decision to voice Mordecai, Quintel responded: "I had done the voice of Mordecai in my student film, so when it came up and I was making a short I really wanted to do the voice again because I felt like he was already done. But the studio actually made me try out real actors because I’m not an actor and we did a whole casting call. We tried out a bunch of different voices, but at the end I really wanted to be Mordecai and I got to be [him]."[16] Quintel also auditioned to voice other characters.[17] In addition to Mordecai, he also voices Hi Five Ghost, and has voiced him since "Caffeinated Concert Tickets", replacing Jeff Bennett, who voiced the character in his debut episode "Just Set Up the Chairs". The reason for the casting change is unknown.

Due to not being a working voice actor for other shows, Quintel mainly voices the two above. Nonetheless, he occasionally provides voices for background characters, such as the Baby Ducks.

The following list below contains the characters Quintel is credited for voicing.
