Toby Jones (born March 31)[1] is a former storyboard artist for Regular Show. He is currently the supervising director of OK K.O.! Lakewood Plaza Turbo.[2]

Early life

His hometown is Fargo, North Dakota.[3] In 1998, as a child, Toby was interviewed on local access television about an "animated series" he made.[4] He would then attend the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, majoring in Filmmaking, for four years.[5]


He was hired to work on Regular Show in a rather unusual way: a frustrated J.G. Quintel was looking for storyboard artists and desperately made a tweet via his Twitter account, stating "looking for board artists". Jones tweeted back and emailed Quintel via Facebook, interested in doing a storyboard test for the show. Quintel gave him one, and he passed the test.[6]

Jones further elaborates what he did before being hired and how it's like to be on one of his favorite shows: "About six months ago [article was written on May 17, 2012] I was living in Minneapolis [Minnesota] and working at a movie theatre to [barely] make ends meet while devoting my free time to comic and film projects. I was a big fan of Regular Show and never missed an episode. One day I noticed a post on J.G. Quintel’s twitter that said 'I’m searching for board artists for Regular Show. neeeeeed [sic] more [story]board artists' and figured I may as well give it a go. I sent him some samples of my comic and film work and he liked them enough to send me a storyboard test. Then I got the job and moved to LA [Los Angeles, California]! Thank god. To say I’m 'living the dream' would be an understatement. I never imagined I’d get an opportunity to work on any show, let alone one of my absolute favorites."[7]

Jones has stated his biggest challenge is coming up with fresh ideas: "Freshness is extremely important to me when it comes to working [on] the show. It can be tempting to fall into old patterns — ‘That got a laugh five pages ago and I’ll do that again.’ I don’t like doing that ever. I would try something a little weirder or something strange. Sometimes that works and sometimes that doesn’t. But the important thing is freshness!”[8]

His other works includes comics for Memory Foam, Good Minnesotan, Ghost Comics and FORT90.[7] Toby also made a short for Cartoon Network, entitled A.J.'s Infinite Summer.[9]

In 2016, Jones co-produced and developed the Cartoon Network mobile game OK K.O.! Lakewood Plaza Turbo with creator Ian Jones-Quartey. The following year, it became a full series. He serve as the supervising director on the show.
