Animation Analysis

Spongebob SquarePants

Spongebob SquarePants is a 2D kids show which was created with Approximately 50 people that worked together in animating and producing an episode of SpongeBob SquarePants. Throughout its run, production of the series has been handled domestically at Nickelodeon Animation Studio in Burbank, California, while the finished animation has been created overseas at Rough Draft Studios in South Korea. Storyboarding for each episode is done by the crew in California. The storyboards are then used as templates by the crew in Korea, who animate by hand, colour cels on computers, and paint backgrounds. Episodes are finished in California, where they are edited and have music added. Every season, character designs are updated or modified to solve technical issues in the animation.



Pingu is a stop motion animation series created by Otmar Gutmann and produced from 1986 to 2000 that is intended for young children. It was created using clay and for each frame a picture was taken individually with the characters and objects slightly moving. The animation was created in Trickfilmstudios. When creating the animation, they used their own lighting in a dark room as using natural light would not be good as it would be constantly changing. The show is quite good for children as it’s quite simple and the characters don’t really speak much which means that the movement of the characters is what makes the animation good for kids.
