Status: Lost

In 2003, the animation company Funny Garbage partnered with Nickelodeon to create a series of games called Scribblevision. They were advertised as "virtual coloring books" that allowed young players to color pictures and see their artwork become animated. These games remained on the Nick Jr. and Noggin websites until November 2009, when they were merged together and most older games were removed.

Description

They were designed and developed by Funny Garbage.[1] Seven different games were released in the series: a Moose and Zee game, an Oobi game, a Franklin game, and generic Scribblevision coloring books for each of the four seasons.

All of the Scribblevision games' filenames are "colormate.dcr," indicating that the working title for the series may have been Colormate.[2]

The games won first place in the "Brand Image and Positioning" category at the 21st Annual Mark Awards.[3]

Availability

Although the Noggin website had been archived several times on Archive.org, the Scribblevision games are all completely unplayable, due to the fact that it was a Shockwave DCR file.
