Partnering with John Gotimier was Jay Cagide, a long time news camerman and advertising man from Ogilvy & Mather. With John's lovely wife Yolanda producing a hip script, the project soon fell into our laps to create the main characters using all kinds of puppetry.
Would you like to swing on a star,
Carry moonbeams home in a jar?
In the summer of 1995, a New Yorker with a dream sat humming in his living room. "How about a rock and roll video for kids?", he thought. Long-time film editor and producer for clients such as HBO, MTV. and King World Entertainment, John Gotimer had a dream.
A new kids video but with a special twist, pulling its inspiration from the Rocky and Bulllwinkle show, The Tonight Show and MTV, The Rockin' Ralphie Show began to take shape. It was to be a kids talk and music video show featuring a hip raccoon as the DJ and his sidekick the motorcycle-riding,
Oh So Cool Brody the Squirrel.
Featuring songs like Rockin' Robin, Sugar Sugar, Joy to the World and Locomotion, this video offered something for both the kids and their parents to enjoy. That's Amoré and Would You Like to Swing on a Star added the grandparent appeal.
Personalizing each film with the name of the child for whom it was purchased, was also part of the production idea for this new film. Packed full of public service announcements and kind guidance from a hip raccoon opened the door to this unique project.
