- Eric Fensler
Eric Fensler is an independent American filmmaker from
Chicago, known for his series of 25 parodical remixes of G.I. Joe Public Service Announcements (PSAs). The PSAs in their original form were short educational segments featured at the end of every G.I. Joe cartoon. Fensler replaced the dialogue and edited the video to create a series of bizarre and sometimes humorous shorts that have generated a cult followingon the Internet.
September 9, 2004, Fensler received a cease and desist letterfrom Hasbrowho said his distribution of the films violates their G.I. Joe trademarksand copyrights. The films were later removed from Fensler's website, though still present at many other places on the internet. By June 2006, the original shorts are back on Fensler's site.
He is also known for his work with Tim and Eric. Fensler co-wrote an episode of their TV show
Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!("Chunky") and provides the voices of the titular characters in their internet animated-short series "Stephen and Steven".
