ANIMATIONS FOR CHILDREN -      #1            #2 >         #3 >

This was part of an 8 part series of animations about the "teen" numbers made for Children's Television Workshop. It won an EMMY for Best Animation in a Children's Series" as part of an episode of Sesame Street.

It was the dawn of animation made on the personal computer. At the time, the palette was limited to 20 colors, so I needed 3 Amiga computers hooked together to have a big enough palatte to make shading. The sequences had to be hand-triggered and the output was recorded to tape.

Produced for CTW by Arlene Sherman,
Written, directed and animated by Merrill Aldighieri
Original music score to picture by Frederick Reed IV .
