An unusual feature of Dr Katz is the novel animation technique called Squigglevision, whereby, essentially, there is no lateral movement by any of the characters or objects, with only lips, eyes, and the like animated. However, the edges of the characters are in a constant state of zigzagging flux, and this gives the impression of movement. Written by

The roots of the show trace to an independent animated short about a psychiatrist and his son. Titled "Shrink Wrap", it was created by Tom Snyder
at his education-software company in Cambridge, Massachusetts before Snyder had anything at all to do with television. A friend in Los Angeles connected him with people in the industry, who were impressed enough with Shrink Wrap to want to develop it. They gave Snyder a list of experienced names in comedy as potential partners. One of them was Jonathan Katz
, who happened to be Snyder's all-time favorite stand-up comedian. See more
