When I'm Sixty Four ( from Yellow Submarine)


Overtime at work has snatched the hours I normally devote to making Flash cartoons,*, but it's been awhile since I posted. When I can't post my own stuff, I post stuff that inspired me.
Here's an old clip from Yellow Submarine that I've liked since I was a kid. I remember watching it and thinking Wow, I want to make cartoons when I grow up!
My favorite part comes in the middle of the song, where whimsical numbers count to sixty four, to the beat of the music.

*I'm still making them, of course!

I love the numbers best, too!
It was funny watching this and seeing the top of the skip cycle in the post below skipping by.

*you better still be making them.

Linda,
It never occurred to me to watch the skipping birds while the video played. Maybe I should stick clockfaces on their head for better integration? ;)
Sal,
Is it just me, or do the years slip by about as fast as they do in the cartoon?

sal said...

Yes, faster than a speeding bullet!

interesting how this influenced early Sesame Street.

I always found Yellow Submarine to be rather fascinating as a young child. Trippy stuff indeed...!

Sounds like you're super busy right now...Hope things slow down soon so you can catch your breath.

Take care!
