When I think of the 1980s -this is the first that comes to my mind.
The Morton Downey Jr Show. It was trashy, outrageous, and full of skinheads, red-baiting, wrestlers, rockers, charlatans.
What struck me most as a kid -and sticks with me decades later -was the opening.
Photo animation created by the great Veronika Soul.
By the time I entered the animation industry, the blue airbrushed background card was on its way out. But it was a staple of 1980s commercial productions.
Morton Downey Jr. may have been the last guy to smoke on TV, but that didn't make him hate Fidel Castro any less!
