Did You Know?


Principle animation/photography was done at the now-defunct Will Vinton Productions in Portland, Oregon. Although injection molded foam characters had been in use for some time, this was the first time it was used for a series television show. This choice was an easy one, since character turnover and the less likelihood of damage to them if they were clay, as well as the tight production schedule made the production run smoother and more budget friendly. Will Vinton Prod. pioneered the Claymation and colored foam molding techniques. Like the Plasticine clay still used, the foam color is throughout, making repairs easier and less noticeable than in clay. If damage was severe to clay characters, a replacement was almost certainly needed, causing costly production delays and down-time. Foam core character could be made in quantities and various poses/facial expressions, so scene changes were fast and easier. See more »

HUD Lady's kids?
24 April 2008 | by See all my reviews

I really liked the PJs also. It was a short-lived series that became the victim of the overzealous NAACP and the need for too many people in our society to be "politically correct". These days they give Oscars out for movies that portray much worse than the PJs - yet for some reason because its in a movie, and people pay for it, that's OK. Go figure. The PJs was one of the best pieces of work Eddy Murphy has produced, well-written, very funny, and the claymation style fits in perfect with the story concept. The part I remember most is when the HUD lady lists all her kid's names. Does anyone remember all of them? I only remember 3 - Chevron, Lasagna, and Doritos. I thought there was more of them. Thanks!
