Following our mix-up about Kaj Pindal, we received an email from Michael Carter, Pindal’s producer and partner on the new animated series THE WANDERBIRDS (52×7). He sent us one of Kaj’s development drawings (above) from the series. The show is “a Flash animated series that follows a family of penguins as they leave the crowded South Pole in search of a mysterious new home called the ‘North Pole’” and it’s currently in production at Shaftesbury Films in Toronto.
Also, wouldn’t you know it, Pindal’s Oscar-nominated short WHAT ON EARTH! (1966) can be viewed online in its entirety HERE. The mockumentary, created from the pespective of Martians, documents the life of a typical Earthling (an automobile).
One final bit of Pindal online: Sheridan student Amir Avni has posted a set of frame grabs from Kaj’s hilarious animation in the NFB short I KNOW AN OLD LADY WHO SWALLOWED A FLY (1964). See the full set of frame grabs HERE.
