In conceiving Foot Tapper the concept came about in how to solve and create a small circular cartoon character that would not look like a packman yet journey through tunnels and mazes and be unique and different.

Their great cavernous kingdom was blocked from the outside world by gigantic metamorphose rock formations from a sudden ice age melt. This was a terrible thing until the great earthquake occurred. Then the rocks were parted and the light broke into their cavernous world and they were thrilled to see and feel the warmth of the sun. The light of the moon at night and the light of the sun to guide them during their bright playful happy days. They watched in awe at the sun sets and the crimson glows of the early morning light creeping over the horizon shaking the morning mist out of its sleep, slumber and drowsiness. When they had grown used to the new light of the moon at night and the new light of the sun during the day out from their hidden cavernous world, that they had known for so long, they traveled. Oh how great it would be to explore the great divides, the vast velds, the tropical islands and forests along with the great volcanoes, rivers and seas. Such wonderful wonders lay ahead of them from the rising of the sun to the setting thereof as far as their eyes could see and to the four corners of the earth. Their little hearts swelled with pride as they considered and dreamed about their travels.Was their new world flat or round they asked and pondered? Oh what would these great adventures show forth and bring to them all. The treasures, gold, doubloons, silver, wild beasts. Rivers seas and deserts all to crossed. All this was new and what adventures unfathomable would lay ahead. Spade to Play I WENT DOWN TO THE SEA WITH MY BUCKET AND SPADE TO PLAY...

The music тNAUGHT NAUGHTYу was followed by SPANISH FLEE HE HE.т Both pieces of music are hilarious So what then happened was i, had to create a character that i felt worked with the music not the other way round. The overriding concern was how to place it into a game: The cartoon character had to be funny ticklish with Spanish overtones and who could react to funny noiseуs and voices. The natural creature i thought about was the sting-ray and how its outer wings flapped and created a wavy pattern. Thus JELLY WOBBLES was born, Then by adding the eyes and nose along withhis wonderful mustache he sprung to life and of course immortality... he he. - - - - -
