The Work of Al Jarnow

Al Jarnow was a big name in animation for a long time. Cut his teeth working on such animation hotbeds as the old school Sesame Street shows.  I was never a Sesame Street kid myself, I preferred the kicks and punches and costumes of Batman and the Power Rangers, but now, as a pseudo-adult, Jarnow's work just speaks to me.

Lucky for us, for you and me, Jarnow's collected works (40 shorts and an Al Jarnow-centric documentary) are being put out by the bastions of all things amazing, The Numero Group.  The collection is entitled Celestial Navigations and I can only wish it was my birthday so I could harangue some friend or another in to gifting it to me.
