Yellow Brick Road

#30 – Growing Up With Cartoons

Cartoons are more than just funny animated short films, sometimes they can inspire kids to grow up to become animators themselves. Follow Lead Animator/Supervisor Christina Sidoti and Senior Animator/Director Richard Engqvist for a stroll down memory lane as they discuss the cartoons that shaped their childhood and evoke their love for animation. Is it possible to watch too much cartoons and how will today’s unlimited access to animated entertainment affect the future of the kids that grow up today?
