10 Things You Didn't Know About UMG Productions (Because I Never Mentioned Them)

I decided to have some fun, I've been thinking about some facts about UMG Productions that I have never mentioned online before. Though those close to us did know these facts. Anyways, I decided to compile some facts about UMG Productions that nobody knows on the internet. Maybe it'll make our company a little more interesting. But I don't know.

1. UMG Productions was called Black Panther Studios from 1979 to 1988 because the leader, Trish, has a life-sized plush black panther as a decoration in her home, which became the studio's mascot.

2. Bandit was the first character created in the studio in 1978, followed by some friends in 1980. But they were dropped in 1982, due to a popular story that came out called Creepy Day, with a bunch of ghost dogs haunting a single Pomeranian dog named Sabrina. This led to the Halloween Hall series that lasted from 1982 to 1986.

3. Martin's "gang" began in 1988, with a few characters, himself, Timothy, Lamont, and Bill. The rest were added early in 1989, these included Bucky, Mushmouth and Odel.

4. Pablo was added in 1990, and used to have a sister. Her name was Lady, and she was only used in stories 2 times. By late 1990, Lady was gone, though no story ever mentions what happened to her. She was simply dropped.

5. Bandit's real name is Trish, same as her creator. But in stories she is only referred to as "Bandit".

6. UMG Productions is basically a hobby. Not to make money from.

7. Swen arrived in 1992, and was briefly a member of Martin's "gang". But went solo in 1993, and in 1995, teamed up with Odel, who was also dropped from Martin's gang that year.

8. My best story ideas come when it is raining. For some reason, the sound of raindrops on the roof makes me think better.

9. There has been more than one character named Brad in our stories, and they are not all the same character. Same with the name Katrina.

10. Until Metazoica was created in 1994, I was never satisfied with the species of animals being used, so they constantly changed about every 4-5 months. Which is why in a story from the summer of 1989, one character looks very different than he did in a story written in December of 1989.

Well, that's 10 odd and unknown things I never mentioned about UMG Productions. If I think of more, I'll post them on here.

Bonus: Rosa's real full name is Rosalyn Mary Addington. Candi's real full name is Candice Marie Rivera. She used to be called DeeAnna. Lisa's real full name is Lisa Lynn Raphael. She used to be named Melissa.
