Abstract (Document Summary)

Ottawa's Atkinson-Film Arts lacks the size of Nelvana but it, too is making a bid for audiences fascinated by animation. CTV will air its half-hour specials, For Better Or Worse: The Bestest Present, based on Lynn Johnston's cartoon strip, on Dec. 9 at 7.30 p.m., and Rumpelstilskin, narrated by Christopher Plummer, on Dec. 12 also at 7.30 p.m.

On commission from Star Wars creator Lucasfilm, Nelvana animated and hired the actors to voice two weekly Saturday morning shows, Ewoks and Droids: The Adventures Of R2-D2 And C-3P0, airing on ABC and on Global TV.
