Rolf Harris with creators of Trap Door and Stoppit & Tidyup

Some clips from Rolf's Cartoon Club (1987 to 1992), with guests Charlie Mills and Terry Brain from CMTB Animation. Terry explains how they animate the character Eat Yer Greens from Stoppit & Tidyup.

Stop-motion with traditional animation-style paper cut-outs is not a new technique, but seeing it explained here makes it look a lot like a primitive version of the Flash/symbols or Harmony software animation used in today's television cartoons.
