Pink Elephants




Look out! Look out!Pink elephants on parade
Here they come!Hippety hoppety
They're here and therePink elephants ev'rywhere
Look out! Look out!
They're walking around the bedOn their head
Clippety cloppety
Arrayed in braidPink elephants on parade
What'll I do? What'll I do?
What an unusual view!
I could stand the sight of worms
And look at microscopic germs
But technicolor pachyderms
Is really too much for meI am not the type to faint
When things are odd or things are quaint
But seeing things you know that ain't
Can certainly give you an awful fright!
What a sight!Chase 'em away!Chase 'em away!
I'm afraid need your aidPink elephants on parade!
Pink elephants!Pink elephants!

UPA: Christopher Crumpet (1953)

Another UPA gem. I so love the childlike background music, and i i was also surprised to see T. Hee although i don't know much about him but i thought he only worked exclusively at Disney since i rarely see his name in other classic cartoons anyway i hope you enjoy it! and if not I'm gonna turn into a chicken!!. :D

HAWLEY PRATT (1911-1999)



Here in Flutopia we pay homage to another great artist who also made a huge impact to animation . If Friz Freleng was Michael Jordan, then Hawley Pratt would have to be Scottie Pippen. Hawley Pratt was Friz's consistent layout man. He did almost all of director Friz Freleng's background and character layouts(subject for correction) . Friz Freleng and Hawley Pratt were a dynamic duo. They've had quite an artistic partnership during their stay at Warners. Although Chuck Jones also had a somewhat steady collaboration with Maurice Noble but I think Friz and Hawley held on to each other far longer than anyone else. He blew us away with his expressive layout designs on his run on the Speedy Gonzales cartoon shorts (which is also my all-time fave Hawley Pratt cartoon series) his skewd perspective and straightforward design is so graphically appealing. I guess he never paid much attention on how an object or a scene should look like in reality but instead he focused on the overall impression,design, impact and mood of the scene. In my opinion, a typical Hawley Pratt interior layout design won't show you how the walls and furniture were realistically copied from its real life models but instead it'll give you a very elaborate parody of the interior more like a funny caricature rather than a highly detailed portrait. For me, this is what cartoons should be made of. I included an embedded Speedy Gonzales short to prove my point..please enjoy

illustrator CS2 and Flash 8


I was very excited about Adobe's latest version of illustrator where they have this very cool feature that's called "Livetrace" it converts any jpeg or bitmap file to vector. It works very well for me since i don't have to trace everything in Flash. Here's my first piece using this new feature. Actually the lineart is not mine but from Mr. Miah Alcorn he's one cool character designer who also has a very cool blog. I hope Mr. Alcorn wouldn't mind.

Maurice Noble


Being a HUGE fan of the late Mr. Maurice Noble i guess he deserves a spot here in Flutopia, he has had a huge impact in my background and layout styling although i'm not really that good but i'm aiming to be at par with his artwork someday. I wish he left a book full of his layout art from his cartoon shorts, oh well i'll just gonna tip my hat to this guy, thanks a bunch Mr. Noble sir.

Gerald McBoing Boing

Gerald McBoing Boing is one of my favourite UPA cartoon shorts this one was directed by Bobe Cannon with John Hubley, animated by Rudy Larriva, Willie Pyle, Bill Melendez etc. and colored by Herb Klynn and Jules Engel. This film won the studio an Academy award for best animation short in 1952, by the way this story was originally based from Theodore "Dr. Seuss" Geisel's picture book of the same title, i can't seem to get tired of watching this piece of animation gem..
