I REMEMBER THAT: AMBY AND DEXTER

A fairly big part of Nick Jr.’s content (and Noggin’s, as well) was the inclusion of short-form animations and live-action stories. These manifested in many ways: the live-action/puppet series Abby’s Friends, or animated stories. One that sticks in many minds, however, is a set of shorts known as “Amby and Dexter.” The series was about a pair of hands that took on the personas of a man and a woman, whose names were a pun on the word “ambidexterity.”

The two would often do standard activities like wrapping presents and painting. The combination of no dialogue, unique sound effects, and a whimsical soundtrack made for something unique. Topping it all of was a wiggly, bare-bones animation style that complimented it all. The animation would fluctuate between the two figures, and the actual hands, providing a funny juxtaposition.

The five-episode series was made by married duo Paul Fierlinger and Sandra Schuette. Their backgrounds no doubt contributed to the standout style of the shorts: Paul is a Czech-born cartoonist and illustrator, while Sandra is a fine arts painter. The two are still making commercials. Paul also directed the famous Sesame Street segment “Teeny Tiny Little Super Guy.” The music for Amby and Dexter was composed by John Avarese.

The video above comes from Sandra’s own youtube channel.

ENTJ: Why are you…wiggling?

INFJ:I feel this need to wiggle

ENTJ:…….

INFJ: Feelings make me feel all wiggly

ENTJ:Explain

INFJ: Well, this is not interpretive dance. So obviously Im wiggling because if I wiggle well enough, maybe I will end up free.

ENTJ: Of….? Your sanity?

INFJ: Pfft. I lost that years ago. No. Of any and all relationship attachments.

Ugh. Just the thought…have..to….wiggle…..more….and now you are in my way.

ENTJ: My bad. Least you aren’t doing sprints like the last time.

INFJ: Wiggle wiggle…wiggle….*puff*….those sprints made me look crazy.

Jonghyun and the shaving cream is like a little boy getting into his daddy’s things because he wants to be like his daddy. All small and wiggly and stretching on the little stool to see himself in the mirror as he coats his tiny hands with way too much shaving cream
