The Jasper cartoons are based on the books written by Meredith Hodges and Joyce Doty and illustrated by Bonnie Shields. The cartoons follow the adventures of Jasper and his friends and are holiday themed. The stories are: A Christmas CaperPrecious ValentineA Fabulous Fourth, and A Turkey Tale. Powerhouse enjoyed working on the 90 minutes + of cartoon animation. This project featured some 3D animated objects that were seamlessly blended into the traditionally animated cartoons. Powerhouse even had a large diorama of the “Jasper Ranch” and used a small camera to set up shots to keep the scenes consistent. Learn more at the Jasper the Mule Official Website.
