Totally into Television Productions


Just recently I read a book about Animation called "Created and Produced by Total Televison Productions". This was the team that created cartoons such as: UNDERDOG, TENNESSEE TUXEDO and KING & ODIE. Overall the excellent character design lent itself pretty well to the limited animation used by Gamma Studios. The animation was unrestricted by Physics, Biology, Geography and Perspective, and as a consequence has a delightfull surreal-whimsical-ridiculousness.

This seemed like a good cue to try some limted animation. So here is a walk cycle animated GIF. This was created with paper, crayola pens and Photoshop.

ROCKO'S MODERN LIFE


I'm a real big fan of the 90's cartoon ROCKO'S MODERN LIFE, I recently read the book by the series creator Joe Murray called Creating Animated Cartoons with Character. I found this book to be really interesting and it provided a real insight into animation and the creation and development of an Animated TV series. In short it is a lot of work. If you didn't know he also created the series CAMP LAZLO. Both are worth checking out.
