Cartooners ITDA / Electronic Arts, Inc. 1989

Cartooners is a nice simple little program that allows you to make your very own animated cartoons. Using actor templates and static backgrounds, any user from a child as young as 5 can make semi-professional looking animations. Characters range from a duck to a bird, and a pig to a baseball. Your own imagination is this games boundary. By discovering new techniques you can make some pretty impressive looking toons. This is where the fun lies. Gameplay is like mix-and-match - just pick the backdrop, cartoons, objects, then add text to the blurbs to make a complete comic-book style panel. Animations are cute, but limited interaction with the characters probably means the program is meant more as a "print kit" than a game.
