Question
Russell,
You strongly indicated one must get an agent to solicit cartoon and animated characters. Big question, where can one get a list of agents that would consider a cartoon or animated character vs. a actor or live person......etc.

Thanks much, Alex

Answer
Hello Alex,

If you know someone who has an agent, they can recommend you to them to meet with you.
I can't directly help you with this, but try this website or find others like it.

Remember this: An agent does not get money up front!!! They get a percentage (10 -15% usually) of what you make.
Don't go to someone who wants you to pay them a fee. Those types are scam artists!!!

Hope this helps.
