THE SHOW WITH THE MOUSE IN 3D

The mouse has been an icon of German children’s television for decades. And we grew up with her, too. We are therefore especially delighted to have been asked by Machbar GmbH to create a fully animatable 3D model for her 50th birthday. Together, we have transferred the charm of the drawn character’s design and acting into the third dimension.

Due to the familiar outlines and flat fill colors, as well as the reduced animation, the 3D mouse is not recognizable as such at first glance. She is simply the mouse as we know her.
