No, it's a print that E.W.S. did. I bought it at Philcon.

I get the impression that these Amy animations are nothing more than a
form of advertising for the Amiga. Even the name "Amy" seems to be derived
from "AMIga".

I think he did get the name that way, though she's not any form of
official advertising, for sure. I could send you the .gifs of
"The history of Amy the squirrel" when I get back.

Happy holidays.

You got the origin of the name right, but you are *woefully* misinformed about
EWS's cartoons. All the loop animations (.FLI, .anim) are early works. Yes,
there's a bit of Amiga-centerism, but not as much as you think. His works were
originally intended to be shown on Amigas, but you don't even have to have a
computer with graphics to enjoy his animations: just buy the EWS animation tape
from him or from his Amiga Users' Group (AFIT AUG) and sit back and enjoy! ;)
Amy the Squirrel is hardly his only effort, since there are an incredibly large
number of animations he's made in the last 5 years. Of the 40 animations he's
done, there are at least 3 featuring Ub Iwerks' Flip The Frog (with Clarisse
Cat- one *very* sexy kitty!), 4 *non*-loop Amy animations (not counting the
slideshow), a great Pogo cartoon (with a **very** sexy Mlle. Hepzibah!), a
great Coyote & Road Runner cartoon, a great (!) Batman parody (with the
Bat-Bat[tm]!), several Juggler parodies, and nearly 20 "Aerotoons", featuring
anthropomorphized jets and copters, etc., including a great space shuttle
cartoon! :) There's a great Gulf War cartoon worthy of being viewed, and last
but hardly the least... A 2.5 minute spoof on the Lemmings videogames that is
just plain hilarious! :)

One of the non-loop Amy animations is so big (7 minutes long) that it is not
available as a downloadable file: it HAS to be seen on tape! It was done
exclusively for home video! ;)

If you would like, I'll dig up the address for EWS and the AFIT group.
(BTW, "AFIT" is the Armed Forces Institute of Technology, but their AUG is
open to the general public. Enough so, that the AFIT AUG is one of the largest
AUG's in North America.)

Do you have a voice phone number for them?
Or do they deal exclusively through mail order?

Then how do you explain afitamy.gif? That is clearly using Amy as an
advertisement for AFIT AUG and Amiga.

The fact that Amy was one of the reasons why you bought an Amiga is proof
that, whether intentional or not, the advertising works.

You'll have to explain the context of this line one of these days.

Yep, that *was* a clear pro-Amiga pic! So is amyaward.gif... ;)
The reason for both is simple: he was commissioned to do those pics, of which
he strongly supports the Amiga as his computer of choice...

PH> The fact that Amy was one of the reasons why you bought an Amiga is
PH> proof that, whether intentional or not, the advertising works.

Actually, I was considering an Amiga as far back as 1987, because of its
superior (at the time) graphics handling... (I had ideas about creating a
low-budget sci-fi series using the Amiga for special effects...)

When I finally got a computer (a laptop) in 1991, I figured I couldn't afford
to get an Amiga at that time, and I wanted to do some writing and use any
available astronomy programs that could work on the laptop to further my
writing... (I was working on a Tau Ceti colonization story at the time.. Never
completed it, since I couldn't readily find a program that could show me the
night sky as seen from nearby star systems, or another one that would show
multiple star systems properly... I know Tau Ceti is a single star, BTW,
although I still needed the info for discussing Alpha Centauri...)

Learning about Eric W. Schwartz's animations came by way of a post I made
searching for Furry GIFs and texts on Delphi, and rekindled my interest in
Amigas... What really sold me on Amigas first at that point had nothing to do
with EWS and had everything to do with finding a BBS that was running on an
Amiga, using a BBS program that did exactly what I wanted in a BBS program at
that time, since I considered starting my own Furry BBS called "Quozltime!"
*before* I seriously got into Amigas. It was *after* the BBS encounter that I
finally got to see an Eric W. Schwartz cartoon on tape: "The Anti-Lemmin'
Demo." (This was Jan. 1992 at this point.) I was sold on both EWS and Amigas
after seeing that cartoon (not an .anim... It's a 2.5-minute cartoon!)... ;)

By that time, I was just getting into FurNet while I was running the Comics &
Animation Zone forum on Delphi, my first *real* entry into the Furfandom
community...

All of that started when I asked for Furryfiles! :) I wouldn't be a major
Furryfan if none of that ever happened.... ;)

>... "Such a dear! And you not nervous as usual!" -Mlle. Hepzibah

PH> You'll have to explain the context of this line one of these days.

From EWS's "Pogo" cartoon.... ;) Pogo and his pals nervously approach the
busty skunkette..... ;) They start sweating *after* she says that line...
(I wrote it up since I've repeatedly heard from other Amigans and Furrys who
couldn't understand what she was saying.... Her only other word in the cartoon
is "Boo!" :) )

Well, I can't find a voice number in the textfiles I've got... Best I can
offer is the BBS data number.... (above)

My problem here is that I have not dealt with them before.. Kinda reluctant to,
since Dayton is not PC Pursuitable.... :(
