Don Carter Launches “Dance-A-Lot Robot” on The Disney Channel

Adams & Knight Creative Director Don Carter’s newest creation, “Dance-A-Lot Robot,” premiered February 27 on The Disney Channel.

“Dance-A-Lot Robot” is a series of animated shorts for Playhouse Disney — familiar territory for Carter, who also created “Happy Monster Band,” which premiered in 2007 and is still being played on the channel.

A combination of animation and live-action, “Dance-A-Lot-Robot” stars Dance-A-Lot, a robot with rhythm who teaches preschoolers simple original dance steps including the robot, the blue jay, the dinosaur stomp and the clock, all set to the music of Devo’s Mark Mothersbaugh.

Some of Carter’s character designs for the series can be seen on his Flickr stream as well as the official Playhouse Disney microsite.

My daughter is 11 months and absolutely loves the “Dance-A-Lot Robot”. I wanted to know if there are any plans for character related toys in the immediate or near future. I know that she’d, as well as many other children, would love to have a robot at home to dance alongside them as they grow! Thank you!
