The Seuss team had really wanted me to stay on and relocate to Florida for field installation, but I wasn’t in the budget. Still, I remained in demand at Universal Creative and I was assigned to Universal Studios Japan – a theme park destined for Osaka, Japan.
My first assignment was Animal Actors, a live stage show for live animals. I worked on several different versions of the show and I couldn’t say what was finally built, since I left this project before its completion. The show was located in a section of the park that used an American West theme. From some of the photos that I have seen I suspect that some of the details pictured ended up in the show.
