Animation Smears, Wild Takes and Strong Poses from "Woodstock Slappy"

Animation Lesson:

 

1.  Here are some in-between smears that intensify the acting and animation in "Woodstock Slappy."

Slappy leans in on Skippy with a smear face stretch.    



 

Slappy makes a fast, single-frame gestures toward the stage... 

 



Slappy uses her arms to beseech Skippy to answer the question that's driving her crazy:   "Who's on stage?"








Skippy stretches up then goes down into a squash and freaks out as Slappy sings along with her accordion.

  






2.  Some wild takes from "Woodstock Slappy." 

Slappy wakes up to the song stylings of a screaming Janis Joplin... 
 

 



 





3.  And here are some excellent strong poses and acting from director Audu Paden and his brilliant crew of artists, story-boarders and animators on "Woodstock Slappy,"  helped by some great vocal performances by Sherri Stoner, Nate Ruegger and the rest of the cast.

  1. This is the cartoon you fantasize about taking into a time machine with you and showing it to an actual 1969 audience and blowing their minds.
