1 and a half minutes for an intro. This was of course back when children had attention spans. You’ll be lucky to find a children’s TV intro that goes on for 10 seconds now.
Watched the whole of disc 1 yesterday and it was lovely. You never really mind when the animation is sometimes lazy because it STILL has more effort, and love for the craft, put into it than something knocked up on a PC. You see all the behind the scenes stuff on the PC animations of today and you’ll often see them say stuff along the lines of “oh we used to have to do this but that took too much time”. AND…???? That’s kind of the whole point of animation, pal.
To say “they don’t make them like that anymore” is an entirely literal term here.
