In the early 2000s, all 3 major outlets for children's television had a destination for "tweens". The then lucrative 11-14 year old jr. high school demographic that was too old to be a little 5-11 year old kid, but wasn't full, high-school teenager 14-18 yet. There were 3 primary blocks for this audience Toonami - An action/anime after-school block aimed at kids ages 10-17, but mostly skewed towards boys 10-14. a block that started the big anime boom of the early 2000s, it pushed the limits of a TV-Y7 FV to nearly TV-PG levels that only cable could provide at the time. Zoog Disney - In an attempt to get away from its kiddy image among tweens, Disney launched Zoog Disney in 1998. A unique programming brand covering most of Disney's afternoon and prime-time schedule. It featured original shows like Even Stevens, Jett Jackson, In a Heartbeat, Lizzie McGuire, So Weird, and Bug Juice. It did for the 11-14 audience what The WB did for the 14-18 audience, provided a place were tweens had a voice with shows and movies that were unique, relatable, and had a bit of angst. Its main draw however, was its interconnectivity between on-air broadcast, and its website. Snick/TEENick - Snick, one of Nick's first forays into prime-time programming, Snick took several of Nickelodeon's best shows and a few new ones and created and outlet for kids 6-14 who were bored on a Saturday night. Its main draws were its tween fare like Clarissa Explains it all, Are You Afraid of the Dark?, Roundhouse, and Ren & Stimpy (who's edgy content provided a huge tween following). Its sister block, TEENick which despite its name, was actually aimed at tweens. Of these 3 choices, which of these was your personal favorite as an 11-14 year old?
Here are my first animations so far, but they're just animation TESTS, so it's just a bunch of previews of what I might be coming up with. I may be pretty good with animations so far, but I still may need help & tips, cuz I'm new to using Adobe Flash & I'd like help from you animators out there. Thank you
