Animation Exhibit at Science World

Wow for fans of animation and those who are curious to know what goes into making those beloved cartoons....this is a must see while its lasts. First of all you know sometime is going to be awesome when you're greeted by this.....What time is it?!?!!?

Animation is a beautiful medium enjoy all, young and old and alot of parts goes into making your favorite cartoons. Stepping into the exhibit feels like you're entering the heart of a toon world which in this case is the world of Cartoon Network and Hanna-Barbera which must seen to be believed. It was awesome to see life size mockups of Dexter's lab and co. Various stations scattered through out the exhibit explain in a hands on fashion the various processes of animation including trying out your hand at voicing a scene (do i really sound like that?!"), visual effects and animating frame by frame. This part I found to be very engaging. For animation history buffs there was a cartoon museum showcasing memorabilia and artifacts of mostly Hanna-Barbera cartoons like animation cels and production art of the Flintstones. Before you think animation is kid's stuff.....think about what goes into producing a cartoon, who makes those parts and those who adore it young and old!
