Watch Final Episode of Robert Carnilius' LGBTQ Animated Web Series ‘McTucky Fried High’

Back during
the beginning of the year we told you about Chicago-based filmmaker and
illustrator Robert Carnilius and his LGBTQ animated series called “McTucky
Fried High”. The series which he created will consist of 5 episodes,
“using comedy to tackle issues of gender identity, bullying, sexting and coming
out of the closet”.

filmmaker says that he wanted to make the series because: “even though
there are a lot of great network cartoons and animations, there aren’t any that
prominently feature characters in the LGBTQ community.”

And he adds as well that he was first drawn to animation instead of live actors because
“with animated characters who were non-human, they could be funny, yet inviting
and make the perfect platform in which to engage the audience with humor and
quality story.”

The series premiered
on the series’ website and now the fifth and final episode for was released
yesterday which you can watch below and you can watch previous episodes HERE
