I’ve been trying to catch up on my cartoons from the weekend, and just watched the Avatar episodes from Saturday. One of the things I love about how Nickelodeon presents Avatar is the way they include special features. Sometimes, they have a behind the scenes break where an animator will show how to draw one of the characters from the show. Other times, they’ll have kids act out various scenes from the show.
The best may be what I saw with these two episodes, though. They took some of the fan art that has been sent in for the show, and created a story from them. It was entirely clever, and a great, authentic way to show off these talented young artists!
