I co-designed, directed and animated this short for Nickelodeon in 1989. It is in the permanent collection of American commercials in MOMA (NYC).

Inside-Out Boy is a claymation character that appeared in a collection of five Nickelodeon Shorts between commercials in its original run from 1989 to 1993 on Nickelodeon USA. The first short tells the story on how I.O.B. became who he is. He is playing with his Yo-Yo then goes on a swing, then after swinging too high, he swung over the bar and his body flipped inside out. Making him "Inside-Out Boy". To kids, he is a superhero, with his inner body parts exposed, it grosses out adults making them jump away and scream in the process. Each episode have our hero in situations like having to help his friend at the Science Fair, impressing a Girl, having a rap battle with "MC Mallet", and other situations, proving he's got a lot of what every kids' got inside - guts! The shorts also aired internationally (Planet Nickelodeon / Planet Orange) on Nickelodeon UK and Nickelodeon Germany

Those shorts later re-aired on Noggin in 1999. The character was created by writers William McRobb & Chris Viscardi ("The Adventures of Pete & Pete", "KaBlam!", "The Naked Brothers Band", "Sanjay and Craig", "The Assistants") and Scott Webb.
