Saw it at Comic Con

At Jerry Becks "Worst Animation EVER" show! It felt like the storyboards for an unfinished cartoon, not an actual cartoon itself!

The characters held books up to their mouth to hide the fact that the lips weren't animated!

But I also the person also did some better work later.

From another site:

Capitalizing on the phenomenon, producer Fred Ladd secured the rights to a series of NASA color documentaries about space, technology and all things futuristic, packaging them together into half-hour bundles as The Big World of Little Adam.

The show's title came from its cartoon host, a curious lad named Little Adam. Rather than simply present the documentaries as they were, Ladd created a pair of animated siblings to help explain things to the kids at home. Adam and his freckled kid brother Wilbur appeared in limited animation wraparounds, setting the scene for the series' showcase of NASA innovation and hopes for the future.

110 five-minute episodes of The Big World of Little Adam were produced during the show's syndicated run, but unfortunately, the series couldn't keep pace with its subject. Like all things technological, NASA's documentaries quickly became obsolete as the U.S. spent billions trying to beat the Soviets to the moon. With so much happening so fast, the world of space exploration simply became too big for Little Adam, and the series faded into memory.
