Hugo Meets The Baron: Hugo #1 1984 > Milton Knight
CAPRICE, TEEN OF TOMORROW is my dream cartoon; I’ve been planning and animating it since 2003. A space fantasy, full of wild action and music, reminiscent of the earthy animation of the 1930s, but thoroughly original and modern.
CAPRICE has a solid idea behind it; it is the story of adolescents of all galaxies living in a bleak, blighted parody of the Ideal Future. Urban waste and condemned planets surrounding them, they gather after dark…and unbeknownst to their guardians…at the Yum Spot, a spacious hamburger joint miraculously untouched by the vagaries of time and implied war. It is here that Caprice is free to break from the constraints of her (well-loved) home and make merry with her favorite people; classmates of all shapes, sizes, colors and species. But, from one of those condemned planets, danger erupts, putting them all in peril, and it is then that CAPRICE emerges, capable, energetic, and, eventually, victorious. Click here to read more.
Here’s a fan drawing I did for Milton when he first started his website, oh so long ago. It’s still there in the Letters section! Thanks, Milt!
