Also known as Almanac Really Hates Potatoes.

A storyboard from Potatoo Many. Almanac throws down his knife and half-peeled spud in disgust.

This was another technical challenge, though for different reasons: potatoes. This episode prominently features a giant pile of potatoes taller than Almanac himself. Luckily, as it turns out, the potatoes were fun (if a bit tedious) to animate. If you look closely, you will see that there is a large underlying shape in the potato pile. This creates the illusion of a solid pile of potatoes, allowing me to animate only 100 potatoes instead of 500. With enough potatoes rolling over this solid mass, it looks like the whole pile is collapsing.

Almanac gazes upon a tumbling pile of potatoes. Almanac may hate potatoes, but Meg James had fun drawing them.
