Entertainment website Shockwave.com has teamed up with James Brooks, producer of the cartoon series The Simpsons, to create animated content for its games site.
Brooks joins cult film director Tim Burton, and South Park creators' Trey Parker and Matt Stone who have also contributed to the site.
Shockwave.com offers web surfers free Flash software which enables them to run high-quality animation over dial-up networks as well as Shockwave, which adds interactive details to games and animations.
Separately, Shockwave.com will offer Flash animated features on the internet accompanied by music in MP3 format. The service will be called Shockwave Singles and will feature music from artists such as Beck.
The company also plans to enable surfers to download music from the internet and mix it themselves.
Shockwave.com claims to have some 13 million users. The site relies on advertising and sponsorships to generate revenue.
