Soupy Sales - Pookie sings "I'd like to know"
HERE'S 5 BUCKS WORTH OF PRODUCTION VALUE.
POOKIE WANTS TO KNOW IF YOU HAVE A HEART
Now watch super expensive puppet "acting" - at the end of the clip below:
Even with hundreds of millions of production dollars at our disposal, we still have trouble making animated characters act convincingly.It looks like the animators and renderers are so busy trying to make the stuff look expensive that they have no time left to think about making it entertaining. It's shiny filler. (By the way, you should see Eddie act out this style of "animation-acting". Now that IS entertainment!)
So why not be funny instead? It's easier, more natural to what we do and a lot more fun.(And doesn't cost as much!)
BTW, I know a lot of those animators and have worked with them. They have huge talent, but I think this kind of stuff is not taking advantage of their capabilities and it's a doggone shame.
