Adam Savage, known for his work on the popular television show Mythbusters, recently wrote an article for The A.V. Club about the series of animations his father, Whitney Lee Savage, created for Sesame Street during the 1970s. Savage included examples like “Harry Works High in the Sky,” “Guitar Drawing,” and a hand drawing a train and tracks. As a young child, Savage even voiced characters in some of the animations, including the part of “He” in the “He, She, and It” series.
Savage has also discussed his father’s animation work elsewhere. On a recent episode of the Nerdist podcast, Savage discussed working with his father on the animations and the process of writing the A.V. Club article. In a video for Tested.com Savage spoke with animator Marty Cooper about the animation process and his father’s work while Cooper created an animation.
