"Tarantula" is an 8 part animated series created by Carson Mell
that's based on the life of lovable transient Echo Johnson. The fictional character is an outsider with a heart of gold (how I love to use that expression!), not unlike a guy you'd find in the local dive bar. Each 3-5 minute episode finds Johnson telling us an entertaining, at times hilarious, story about his life. His monologues cover subjects like hangovers and evil fish, crashing parties, his belt buckle collection and amateur tattooing.
