Cold Germs

"I wonder if cold germs catch colds.... We could ask 'em, but we probably couldn't hear their tiny little voices." - Crawford the Cat.

Here's the video.

Enjoy!

This weekend we excitedly begin our Indiegogo campaign to raise money for the production of new videos for the Crawford the Cat website.    “Crawford’s Minute Moves:  Exercise on Purpose” is a series of 3 minute videos that encourage physical exercise and movement and can serve as a quick energizer when students need a "brain break.”   Currently, we are taking a reprieve from trying to get larger educational concerns to take a look at Crawford and to help fund additional materials for the website.  Instead, we are now turning to our friends, family, educators, and fans of CrawfordtheCat.com to help make these new videos a reality.  Please take a look at our campaign.  If you’d like to support the project with a few dollars, that’d be terrific!  If you like the project, but can’t afford to contribute, you can still help by passing the campaign info along to others.  Thanks much!

"O.Ratz in Rat in a Hot Tin Can"

Click here to see VIDEO

I found out that “O.Ratz in Rat in a Hot Tin Can” was no longer available on YouTube, so I decided to put the 7 minute cartoon on our own website for a short time. We made the cartoon with Hanna-Barbera in 1995 for Cartoon Network’s “What A Cartoon Show.” Of course, it didn’t go to series, but it was still a lot of fun to make, and we made some long lasting showbiz friends along the way. ..See the video here and our info page on it here.

Enjoy.
