Who's this?



This is a close up of the rope about to break.


I'll give away free clay to the first several people that can tell me what this character's name is and what TV special he appeared in. Points for any other details as well, (what pops out of the eggs?...where does he fall to next? etc,)







At one point he falls into a bird's nest. These are frames where I squished him down on impact.

Well that's a pretty good start. I will say that (he) it is a vegetable.

I'm pretty sure he's the mountain climber in Meet the Raisins, not Raisins sold out.

Hi There Tony,

I Don't Think That Particular Character Has A Name ( Unless You Gave Him One ) But He Is A Leek, Maybe His Name Is Leek : The Mountain Climber. You Sculpted Him, But It Doesn't Look Like You Got The Credit For It In The Credits Of Meet The Raisins. All Your Name Is Mentioned Under Is Lead Animation. As For Who Pops Out Of The Eggs It's The California Raisins A.C., Beebop, Stretch And Red Singing A "Intimate Outdoor Performance"

It looks Like You Animated Some Scenes With The Clay On Glass Technique, Am I Right?

At One Point He Falls And Grabs Onto A Branch With A Baby Owl That Knows What Is About To Happen And Slowly Slides Away. Do Owl's Live In The Cold Mountains Like That? Hmmm.

At The End Of His "Intimate Performance" He Falls Into The Waiting Arms Of The Raisins. The Whole Scene Was Put Together And Filmed Really Well. You Guys Did A Good Job Tony - M Flem Jr

Yeah I remember making the eggs out of a thin layer of plaster paris and filling them with purple clay. As the raisins start to pop out I tapped on the plaster and broke out little pieces of it until the raisins were exposed.
