Tissa David’s work spans 60 years, much of it not archived on the web. Here are just a few examples to give you a sense of her style and artistry, limited by what I know and by what’s available on Youtube:
Her animation of the character Raggedy Ann in the 1977 feature film Raggedy Ann & Andy: A Musical Adventure is her best known work (this link leads to part one; the rest of the film is also on Youtube in parts):
She did work for Nickelodeon’s show Ka-Blam! including this collaboration with the cartoonist Kaz on the music video for They Might Be Giants’s song, “Dr. Worm”:
Here’s a strange Sesame Street segment from the early 70s which Tissa animated called, “Never Invite an M to Dinner”:
Older readers may remember a series of animated commercials for Piel’s beer she did. Here’s one of them:
And here is part of a Dutch animated film of Felix Mendelssohn’s “Midsummer Night’s Dream” from 1983, with another great female character:
An exception to her untraditional vibrant female characters is this hilarious Bain de Soleil commercial I just discovered, in which Tissa drew bikini-clad high-heel-wearing skinny women, but I feel like maybe she was making fun of them just a little.
