Paul, I'm reposting the video. For your future reference, all you need to do is copy and paste the part of the url that follows the = sign. For example, here's the original link...

This is all you need to paste betwen the youtube brackets...

Regarding the video, I recognize a few of the faces.

Wow, this is a long time ago. I was 7 years old.

Still laughing at all these era cars and hairstyles . . .

Also, always a hilarious time-capsule are the appearance of over-sized Post-It notes dotting the landscape of a very-retro vending machine, complete with candy bars in classic wrapping.

I think I even see a few I used to love that don't exist anymore . . .

Got to the Cro part and it was obvious this was an inside joke, but that got the hardest laugh out of me, as the Cro work couldn't have been easy!

Lots of similar sentiments come from artists having to work on children's edutainment shows!

Thanks Charles, I guess that I should have read your instructions first. There was actually a guy in the very begining in the bread part that I did a double take, because he looks like a younger you. But I know that you worked at Filmation I believe back them, so its someone else.

Yeah, I'm old enough to remember. Those were fun days indeed. Can't help but wonder if anyone's having fun today?

Paul, I'm not in the video. Filmation closed its doors in 1989. In 1992, I was spending most of my time at DIC, which afforded me the flexibility to indulge in some independent projects I was attempting to produce. It was a particularly significant year for me as I went through an embezzlement that affected me career in many ways and really galvanized my attitude towards the corporate control of our industry.

And as Mr. Fun stated, I would agree. Even with the bad times I was experiencing, working in the industry seemed a lot more enjoyable back then. It was aggressively expanding and we were at the very beginning of the second golden age. Your drawing skills alone would get you hired. High end technology wasn't as big of a factor in production at the time. It was just beginning to emerge. Animation was still mostly pencil and paper.
