My work on this episode, which aired today:
"Oh, that doesn't sound like a good idea!"
"I can do that, no problem! Eeeh! Oooh! Huh?" - ("I'm off to find the cricket!" was later cut.) - "Uhm, maybe I'd better poof us there. But where do you find a cricket?"
While this was originally a longer shot, the second part of Blogg's dialogue had to be cut to make room in the episode for a crucial change elsewhere.
"A ladybug, ha! We better keep looking."
One of my favorite little Abby moments. I love Abby!!!
"Well you can help if you want, but I definitely do not need it."
I had a great time adding the stiff wooden shake characteristic to various Blogg puppet shots.
"We don't need a giraffe or a monkey, what we need, is a donkey!"
One of Abby's many cheerleader-style rhyming moments.
"Eghh, Eeeh, Oohm..." - "What's wrong?" - "I can't do it!" - "Sure you can! Your arms and legs and wings are all back to normal."
I really put as much love into this underwater shot as I could in just a couple of days! When I saw a test render of the whale, I knew the caustic lighting would be really impressive for a kid's tv show, and so I tried to really get the weight right as well as believable secondary action on the fairies' flippers.
PS - Thursday's episode introduces a really fun new character, so don't miss it! I think he will leave you *wishing* for more!
