“Hi!
My name is Bertie. I am one of Australia’s most famous advertisements, for a food called Aeroplane Jelly.”

One of the problems with animation in this country is that it is not taken seriously. It is considered to be something purely for the amusement of children. Case in point is this article on Aeroplane Jelly by the National Film and Sound Archive. While there is all sorts of information on the jelly and on the famous jingle, nothing is mentioned of who directed the animated commercials that are now such a huge part of our popular culture.
