There is a free show at the Yankee Candle Village in South Deerfield, Massachusetts that features very real-looking animated "musicians" who, at this time of year, sing holiday music.
They play instruments, too, and seem to look out at the audience.
One'd swear they were real, living people but they aren't!
They are totally animated.
They smile and seem to mouth the words to the songs they sing.
My little three-year-old grandson called them singing "robots."
HAVE YOU EVER SEEN ANIMATED CHARACTERS IN PERSON?
