Be careful what you wish for . . .

There has been a lot of chatter in the Scottie world about the new animation release of Coraline. I wasn't paying much attention, but yesterday when there were a set of Coraline alphabet cards up for grab at Curves - I took them thinking I could use them for my Creative Souls workshop.

The packet was sealed and I didn't think to open it until this evening when I saw another comment on a Kathy Edmunds email about how someone had caught a picture of the Scotties in the theatre in one of the scenes (see picture below) in the movie. There are 500 Animated Scotties that fill the Theatre - Wow!

In the movie trailer on the Internet, you can see the Scotties in the theatre -

So I opened the deck of Alphabet cards and low and behold under U - not S there is a Scottie Angel.

It says "U is for Up -- Where Scottie Dogs Fly Anything's Possible in an Otherworld Sky".

Thanks to Kathy Edmunds for keeping me up-to-date via email and Ann Brocklehurst for the additional information on her blog --

In surfing a bit more on the web, I found this video which has a clip of the Angel Scotties on the shelf (towards the end). It is interesting how they did the stop animation.

Another video which shows the Scotties barking and jumping.
