Cartoon Characters

Hello Everyone!

Mr. Magoo What a character. No matter what he did it always worked out for him.

JetsonsGave me a look of what could happen in the future.

Gumby & Pokey – the first animated cartoon I saw way back when. They were the first stop-motion characters created and modeled by Art Clokey.

Today we have animated characters which to me are different than cartoon characters. What’s the difference?
Cartoons are drawn or painted by hand on celluloid painted sheets, then photographed, and shown on shown. Which I call flat.
Animated are computer generated imagery (CPI). 3D animation. Are more realistic with their movements.

Now my son will just say cartoon no matter what. Then I correct him “it’s animated”. He is a comic book person – totally. He has been going to “comic book conventions” for eons. I went with him to see what they were like, I really enjoyed them, plus he didn’t know how to drive.

By any chance do you remember when comic books were banned. I do. To me children back then were reading outside of school and enjoyed it. Then over the years reading skills went down. Let me tell you when I looked at one of my son’s comic books I needed to take out my dictionary. WOW! Totally different from when I was younger.

Transylvania 3 animatedWhat a difference from watching the original movies eons ago. I’m talking Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, Christopher Lee, Lon Chaney and Lon Chaney Jr.
To answer the question you’re thinking – I wasn’t born in that era when they first came out.

Sing animated
Love this movie. It shows me a multicultural group can work, have fun, listen to ideas, and all learn from each other.

How To Train A Dragon
Wouldn’t you just love to borrow a dragon from your neighbor to do your shopping. I could just imagine what the parking spaces would like. Space marked for two-headed dragon, pearlcatcher dragon, ridgeback dragon, snapper dragon and spiral dragon.

Shrek Beauty is only skin deep. It’s what in your heart that counts.
You can not judge a book by it’s cover. How true! I have learned that over the eons.

Have a great day! Hope

Retired in 2015, lived in Chicago, IL all my life. Love blogging and knitting. I'm sure people think my blogs are - hmm - "bonkers". I've read there are eight (8) type of writers. Closet writer, eternal writer, hestiant writer, innovative writer, inspired writer, literate writer, logical writer, and last but not least savvy writer. Still trying to figure out what I am. I like to use clip art or photos in my blog. Try to relate the clip art and/or photos to what I am writing. Eight (8) writers information found on greatstorybook.com Thank you for stopping by!
