Jelly Bean Animator

A woman was famous worldwide
and wanted to take a wild ride.
She felt a call to create
To jelly bean animate
and did something that no one else tried.

This rhyme was written for Mad Kane's limerick contest.
Come on over to read or participate.  Her blog is one of the best!


  1. haha yeah that is some dedication indeed
    Eating all those jelly beans would make my insides bleed..haha

  2. Hehe. Yeah... that's a lot of sugar! Imagine how hyper they were. :)

  3. I'm not a big fan of the song, but I have to admit the jelly beans were pretty awesome.

  4. @CheesyDoug - I wasn't into the song either, that's why I shared the "making of" video. :)

  5. Sweet! Unique!
    And your rhyme is perfect for the video!

  6. wow...nice...i might get a tummy ache in the making of such a vid...ha

  7. Had to click over and see the finished video. Pretty neat looking. The funny thing is that the way they matched it up one frame at a time, makes the girl looks like she's stop-animated like Gumby. They probably could have simulated the jelly-bean animation with a computer, but they wouldn't have gotten that same choppy, stop-animated, effect which adds to the charm of the whole thing. Nicely done.

  8. @Debra - I do think she succeeded at creating something unique that stands on its own. :)

    @Brian - Or... we might never want to see a jelly bean again after playing with them that many days in a row. :)

    @Bryan - Yeah. I like that she was stop animated too. I'm not sure I would have enjoyed it as much if the jelly beans were just a backdrop. :)

  9. Creativity working... Unique it is. Thanks for sharing

  10. Wow..what a neat idea! Quite the process!

  11. I wonder whats the life span of a jelly bean?



  12. Lovely rhyme and video, great work.

  13. good one i like the video thank you and god bless now i have to go out and get some jelly belly jelly beans lol

  14. Imagination and creativity a great combo!!! Really enjoyed seeing this come together!!!

  15. Talk about imagination...AWESOME...As always.....XOXOXOXOXOXOXO

  16. Loved your limerick and both videos! Who in their right mind would ever conceive of jelly beans being art? I mean, I remember President Reagan liked them, but what imagination and creativity here, to take them beyond the taste buds and the stomach!

    Very clever; so glad I stopped by!

  20. true that...too much of a good thing can leave quite a stain....

  21. @Claudia - It is quite a labor of love. :)

    @Brian - Although, it didn't look like they used ALL the flavors for the video, so we would have those after. Hehe.

  22. @ayala - Thanks for visiting! I'm glad you liked it. :)
