THROWBACK THURSDAY 18
THE GET ALONG GANG!!!!
This weeks throwback is one that not many people remember, but that's the whole purpose of the throwbacks is to resurface toons from the past that now live in Cartoon limbo. The get along gang is no exception. Though part of the cute, cuddly saturday morning toons which included the Wuzzles, Shirt Tales and Care Bears, the get along gang for some reason stuck with me. When I first started working for American Greetings I was given the task of taking these classic characters to a new level. Kind of like a facelift. It was a cool challenge for me to update these characters. Along with a team of writers I think the the overhaul came out pretty good. This was actually my first attempt at designing animal characters. Let me know If you all dig the final results.
(L to R) Mogo,Hatch,Mayfield,Reagan,Domino and Mrs. Bristlemore
The Moose is my favorite. I tried to make him iconic because he's the leader.
A few secondary characters.
The old GANG! Below is the itro clip to the cartoon. Maybe the song will jog your memory.
