97.9 The Box's Madd Hatta becomes a cartoon

Madd Hatta of the 97.9 The Box KBXX morning show gets animated for social media

Big time radio morning hosts usually have animated personalities and that's why people listen in droves, but one Houston DJ has gone totally cartoonish...for real.

Madd Hatta of the 97.9 The Box KBXX morning show and recent Texas Radio Hall of Fame inductee is now appearing in cartoon form on the station's social media accounts. I've never seen a radio station doing this!

"We produce all videos in house," Operations Manager/KBXX Program Director Terri Thomas tells "We’ve gotten a GREAT response thus far."

Thomas says the concept is a collaborative effort between her, Jimbo of the Madd Hatta Morning Show and online editor Leon [no last name given].

Based on the watermark on the video, it looks like the Radio One station is using a site called Go! Animate to create the cartoon. I'll have to check that out.

One day there could be an animated Mike McGuff (that would resemble this character) on this blog telling you the latest about Houston media news.
