Hobo Radio Interview – Elizabeth Ito, creator of City of Ghosts

Elizabeth Ito has spent more than 15 years working in animation on shows like Adventure Time and her award-winning Cartoon Network short Welcome to My Life.

Her new Netflix show, City of Ghosts, is about a team of adorable young ghost hunters who travel around LA interviewing spirits and learning about the rich history of the city and its eclectic inhabitants. After a rough few years, it is essential comfort viewing.

We interviewed Ito about her career in animation, the development and execution of City of Ghosts and her anxiety about the child actors aging out of their parts.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • Interstitial – “Vishnu Meets Funk” and “Ancient Ritual” by Lucas Perný & Miloslav Kollar
  • End – “Ghost” by Flugeldar
