Larger reply for Jakeally and BlackTigr who wanted to know more:

Gosh this one took FOREVER... first of all it doesn't exist, the only Partridge Family animation out there is too big to use as a tinyhead... And nothing with the colorful birds, which is what I wanted. So I found some site to download the opening, and I had to pause it in 14 places! To screen capture the shots I wanted, and that was alot of going back and forth.

The cat with my name took 16 frames but they weren't hard to make cause conceptually I knew what I wanted. Basically it was just a blank frame filled in with purple, and then each letter was placed in seperately to give the illusion in the end that they were moving in place. Also the cat part was done in PSP7 (paint shop pro) which made it easy. Cause then I didn't have to search the net for images.

But this one... sheesh... I wanted all the birds coming at you like the original opening, but that would make too huge a file, and stopping the .mpeg file was too difficult to get all 5 small birds.

So I compromised and just did the ending part so you could atleast see them. But again the whole thing had to be 60 x 60 pixels and under 20,000 kb... so it was touch and go there, literally! I'm pretty happy with it... not sure if I'd do anything this elaborate again though... thanks for asking...

Only for you Rose would I start that whole process again, here's the sign... I couldn't make it legible at that size, but I figured people who knew the show would remember what it said...

It's an inside gag from the pilot that this is her (shirley jones aka shirley partridge) first time on the road touring as a family...

Thanks for asking cause this lets me show just how fuzzy the images were till I resized them, also the sign was made brighter to even see it this good... it really is an old piece of footage :D

Thanks, bobby; I never watched the show, so I hadn't a clue! You've done a really nice job with this tinyhead!

good job Bobby!! thanks for showing us how you did this. my software doesn't allow me to get too crazy doing animations, but I have been able to do a few simple ones. hopefully I will be able to afford some new software to play around with.
