Getting started

What’s the deal with cartoons?

Why cartoons? Won’t it make your brand look childish and immature? The short answer: Nope! Everybody loves cartoons. They transport us to magical places where anything is possible, and they’re fun and engaging. Here are a few more reasons why you should jump on the cartoon bandwagon:

Forget about boundaries

Did you know that just about every culture in the world makes cartoons? Also, cartoon characters can be created without any specific nationality, age, or gender. Which means you cartoons have the ability to appeal to anyone and everyone. They’re universal. Kiss those cultural roadblocks goodbye, friend!

Build trust with your audience

Cartoons have a way of gaining trust. After all, that cute talking bear, friendly robot, or informative professional-looking character would never say anything untrue, right? Biteable is the ultimate cartoon character maker and gives you access to friendly faces you can use to win the trust of your viewers.

Tackle important subjects

Lastly, because cartoons are otherworldly and often humorous, they can easily soften the blow of touchy topics or make traditionally dull subjects more interesting. When you need to say something controversial (it happens, we get it) or boost the fun factor in your videos, use a cartoon.

Pro tips

Release your inner cartoon creator

Biteable is the only tool you need to make attention-grabbing cartoon videos. Follow these pro tips and you’ll be making award-worthy creations in no time flat.

Make engagement a priority

The best cartoon videos engage viewers on a deep level and keep them watching the whole way through. To keep eyeballs glued to your work, remember to keep your videos short and sweet, 15 to 60 seconds is ideal. Also, write your video’s text in a conversational manner. This will make your videos more relatable to viewers.

Punctuate like a boss

Punctuation makes video text easier to read and will help you get your point across — use it! Commas, question marks, brackets, the full shebang. And while we’re on the topic, plz refrain from abbreviations, thx. Lol.

Contrasting colors are your friend

Want to make your cartoon video pop? Choose the right color combinations and it will. You know, your blues and yellows, reds and greens, pinks and purples. Not only will proper color contrast make your videos easy on the eyes, but it will also ensure your text is easily readable without squinting. If your viewers have to squint when watching your cartoons, they won’t watch for very long.
