The PBS Sesame Street Pinball Number Count (or Pinball Countdown). Segment #2 – A Day at the Carnival recreated in 3D animation.
I chose to painstakingly recreate this classic animation from my childhood for a couple of reasons. For one, I absolutely love it. It’s such a funky and creative cartoon. Secondly, I took it as a challenge to see if I could pull it off. It turned out to be so much fun modeling each scene and animating the pinball. I’m pleased with the result, although I do not think I will be recreating the other number segments anytime soon.
The music was composed by Walt Kraemer, arranged by Ed Bogas, vocals by The Pointer Sisters, and Andy Narell on steel drums. It was recorded in 1976 and it debuted in Feb ’77.
