Award-winning animation based on a recording of two preschool-age children.

“Cockaboody” is centered around a candid recording of the toddler-age daughters of animators John and Faith Hubley, Emily and Georgia, as the two talk to one another. It was created by the Hubleys' studio, Storyboard Studios, and their students at Yale, who were instructed to make art boards based on the audio recording of the two young girls. Though “Cockaboody” was made in the ’70s, I think it still stands as one of the most interesting pieces of contemporary children’s media, because children dictated the content and adults simply followed their lead.
