Busy busy Town by Richard Scarry

Scarry’s most famous series of books was about Busytown. While his books are largely populated by common animal species such as cats, rabbits, domestic pigs, and mice, he proved to be quite adept at giving human characteristics to a seemingly endless number of creatures. Beavers, raccoons, hippopotamuses, rhinoceroses, owls, bears, goats, elephants, foxes, gorillas, crocodiles, dogs, wolves, anteaters, hyenas, baboons, chickens, worms, and insects were just some of the other animals to be featured in Scarry’s works. Many of his later illustrations feature characters in traditional Swiss clothing, such as lederhosen, and show architecturally correct drawings of half-timber houses. Examinations of drawings featuring mechanical devices, such as the rigging on a sailboat, also show that they were drawn with accuracy. His books have been popular with children throughout the world. Over 100 million copies of his books have been sold, and they have been translated into 30 languages.

The Busy World of Richard Scarry is a animated Children’s show which  aired from 1993 to 1996, first on Showtime, later on Nickelodeon, and ran for 65 episodes. The television series was based on the Busy Town books.
