The first project I did any substantial work on was "Troubles the Cat", thirteen 6:00 segments for The Children's Television Workshop series "Big Bag" which aired on Sunday mornings on Cartoon Network.

Children's Television Workshop is now "Sesame Workshop" and The Cartoon Network is in the throes its own identity crisis.

Troubles was a nice little show. Very warm.

The success, in my mind, stems from Santiago Cohen's designs.

We "cleaned up" the drawing some out of economy. Remember, this was painted on cel and shot on film. A looser style would take a lot more time and attention than a children's series allows.

Here are some of Santiago's paintings from around the same time.
