Braingames (HBO)




Braingames
 1985 | Spinning Reels, Home Box Office

Although cartoons have traditionally been popular with children, they have too frequently been mindless and passive entertainment providing nothing in return for the time spent in viewing. Braingames, produced by Spinning Reels and distributed on cable by Home Box Office, is an outstanding series of animated television shows which both entertain and instruct. Historical information, mathematical concepts, and explorations of auditory and spatial relationships are integrated into an interactive exchange which holds children’s interest and demands their participation. Excellent technical qualities add greatly to the program’s impact. For an educational program that captures the attention of children and rewards them with improved conceptual skills at the same time, a Peabody Award to Braingames.
