The Very First Piece of Animation I Watched

In Ireland (way back in the day), the children’s programme was Bosco, which was basically a show featuring a puppet who lived in a box. The show was filled with various segments (some of which were animated but more on that another time) and is recalled with fondness by almost any Irish person under the age of 30.

I bring it up because I wanted to share the opening titles. Incredibly simple and bordering on the bizarre, they are most likely the very first piece of animation that I came into contact with as a child. Have a look below and see if you don’t come away just that wee bit confused. At 25, I still can’t figure out what it’s all supposed to mean.
