Crocadoo is an Australian animated series produced by Energee Entertainment and the Nine Network from 1996 to 1998. [1] It follows the adventures of a group of blue crocodiles trying to protect their riverbank from a mad developer. Crocadoo was Energee Entertainment's first original series, its first season being digitally colored and composited with Apple computers running Adobe, Linker Systems and COSA software. The first season's 3D backgrounds (Hotel, hotel interiors) were created using SGI Power Animator. Halfway through the first series, beginning with "Watch out for the Wonglebacks", some character animation was outsourced to Vietnam. Crocadoo's second season utilized Energee Entertainment's own CECAPS computer paint software. [2]
