Originally published in ANTIC magazine, COUNTRY.SHO depicts a vintage car driving through the country.
This animation was produced using Matthew J. Ratcliffe's program, Atari 'Toon, which allowed owners of Atari 8-bit computers to create animated cartoons using ATASCII text graphics. The magazine describes this as a form of "cursor art."
According to ANTIC, the creator of "Model Car Show," Dennis Bennett of Torrance, CA, created his own character set for the animation using Instedit from the Antic Catalog.
Bennett's animation was chosen as one of five runners-up in ANTIC's "ATARI'TOONS Contest" in Feb. 1986.
