I have been receiving a lot of questions about the series lately and hope to answer some of the common ones here.
Why is the animation so shitty?
We opted for a limited animation style in part because of the length of the episodes audio and to go for more of a Space Ghost type of feel. The episodes are roughly 7-10 minutes in length and it would take forever to animate them. Plus, I have been known to be quite lazy with animating. The best part of the episodes comes from the talents behind the microphone. The visuals are merely there to enhance the show a bit. Originally, this show was intended to be a podcast.
Why don't you get better voice actors? Can I voice act for ZMT?
Our goal wasn't to make great animated films. It was just a bunch of friends getting together and having fun. The team members are against working with people we don't know. This show is purely for our own amusement. Though we appreciate your interest in wanting to become involved.
I have an idea for an episode. May I submit it?
Sorry but the short answer is no. This is because we are ending the series. The guest for the finale has already been decided. However, we are open to suggestions for our new series. You may submit your suggestions to the forums on paperdemonmedia.com
How many episodes are left? Who will be in the next episode?
Currently, there are only two episodes left to be released. The next episode will be Episode 16 with Brolly as the guest. After that, Episode 17 will be the series finale. The guest for the finale episode has NOT yet been announced. We are keeping it secret for now.
Where's Zarbon? Why hasn't he been in the newer episodes?
Our talented voice actor Michael Early moved away a couple years back. Because our show is improvisational and unscripted, it is difficult to do long distance recording. We were able to make a couple episodes (shenlong p1 and p2) using Google Talk to record Michael's voice but there were a lot of difficulties with this process. So we decided to continue the episodes without Michael. There were also some bad feelings amongst other cast members.
Why is the ZMT series ending?
We have decided to end the series in hopes of starting a new one. We learned a lot from this first one and can't wait to apply what we've learned to a new series. Also because our star has moved away, it seems strange to continue the series much further without him.

Hi folks. I'm working on posting all of the Zarbon's Masterpiece Theater episodes to Newgrounds. I will post an episode every month until they've all been posted.
