I was wondering more about the See and Learn titles being re-released by Digiview at Wal-Mart as seen below so I did some searching and the only solid site I found was the company that did the computer graphics, Avekta Productions Inc. I sent an e-mail and got a quick response the next day!
Thanks for your inquiry. We created those videos originally on 3/4" masters using the now, very obsolete computer animation computer, Via Video (which cost $40,000 and was capable of showing up to 16 colors simultaneously on the screen!). This was built on a Cromemco System 1 running the pre-DOS, CPM operating system.
The animator was Drew Fishman. The music was created by the guy who wrote the theme song for Entertainment Tonight. The owner was a fellow named Arthur Shimkin, who owned the original Golden Books franchise.
The series was made in 1985 and was originally distributed in Toys R Us. I understand over 100,000 of the VHS versions were sold in each title. Quite a successful series. I am very happy this series is still in distribution. We would like to do more of these, using modern animation techniques and offering foreign language versions, such as Spanish.
