“I decided to make a stop motion with one of my favorite technique: Puppetoons. This is a Hungarian invention by George Pal from the 1930s. Basically it means that all the phases produced individually, in this case more than 200 objects. For making this all I used wood, so I carved the different objects.”

    People always gush over the likes of Adventure Time and Steven Universe here, but I feel Gumball tends to be a severely under-rated show. They’re constantly using their unique visual style for all sorts of clever gags, especially season 2 onwards, and they go the extra mile when they bust out stuff like the musical number above.

      I agree. I have always really enjoyed Gumball.

    • blandyblottschalk

      Gumball is certainly Cartoon Network’s most visually interesting daytime show. It is like visual design porn.
