NOGGIN: TAXI
posted:
 This is the first of seven short animations I recently designed. They are currently running on the commercial free Nickelodeon/Noggin Network. Noggin caters to pre-schoolers. The songs are written and performed by David Weinstone. David created Music for Aardvarks and Other Mammals.

 I was already familiar with David Weinstone's songs. My kids were big fans when they were little. In fact, they were among the first group of kids to attend David's Music for Aardvark's classes. Here's what Jon Stewart has to say about David's songs, "You will listen to David's music even when your kids aren't around, and unlike other children's music, it will not make you angry."

This was produced for Noggin by the great team of Mary Jacobson, Jennifer Cast and Matthew Dunteman. I'd worked with Matthew several times in the past, including on City Symphony, and he's always a treat. Mary and Jennifer are terrific as well.
The Mets logo was removed from the driver's cap for the final. The Mets just can't catch a break in this Yankees town.

8/14/98 is the date of our daughters' births.
Some people to populate the street.

I took a slew of photographs of Bleecker Street between sixth and seventh avenues as reference for the backgrounds.
