Cartoon Network on Location at Oglethorpe…and Looking for Extras

Did you know? The character Oglethorpe from Cartoon Network’s Aqua Teen Hunger Force was named after Oglethorpe University. His fellow Plutonian, Emory, was named after our neighbor Atlanta university.

On September 1 2010, the Cartoon Network was on the Oglethorpe campus filming a music video intro for Tower Prep, a live action show that came to the Cartoon Network that October.

A band performed the show’s intro song on stage in the midst of small pyrotechnics and a crowd of “fans.” OU students, this could’ve been you!

For this exciting shoot, extras were needed to make up the “crowd.” All were welcome, but you had to be 18 or older.

Set-up began in the late afternoon and cameras rolled from 9 p.m. until approximately 1 a.m.
