. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . You can make all the colors by using these three colors. Red, yellow, and blue. These are called primary colors. Primary colors. Hey, wasn't that a movie with Vinny Bob or Reno? Primary colors, bird brain? You know, my brain is actually quite large
compared to the size of my head. Fascinating. Red, yellow, and blue. Can't get these bad boys from mixing. That's why they're called primary. So let's see what happens when we mix these colors. Let's try yellow and red. OK, take some yellow, add a little red, still mixing. Orange. Orange. Orange, orange, orange, orange, orange. Orange? Orange, orange, orange, orange, orange, orange. Orange. Got it by mixing red and yellow. Cool, huh? Way cooler. So red and yellow are primary colors, and orange is a secondary color. Now, let's see what happens when we mix red and blue.
A little mixing music, please. Purple, oh, a personal favorite of mine. Purple, purple, purple, purple, purple, purple, purple, purple, purple, purple, purple, purple, purple. Purple, purple, purple, purple, purple, purple, purple, purple, purple, purple. So I take it since you mix blue and red to get purple, purple is a secondary color. Yep, you're smarter than you'll look. Oh, thank you very, hey. So let's see what happens when we mix blue and yellow. M, my stroke. Green! Yup!
Green! The final secondary color coordinate! Green! Green! Green! Green! I love these gals! hold on, turn it up, please! Yooooo you! I tell you what I want, what I really really want I can make my green, man, I'm gonna make purple, it's the second ever seen.
Yo! I'll tell you what I want, what I really, really want. What you want, what you really want. Tell you what I want, what I really, really want. Tell me what you want, what you really, really want. I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna really, really want to mix my color. Yo! So here's a story from Red to Green. It's about those colors, so listen carefully. You got a good win that primary has been. dun dun dun dun dun dun dun dun! Sure, get your Yeah, what, bay? It really, really, really, really well and got it mixed and I love that song. So Puzzy, you know what?
Those primary and secondary colors on your palette there, they kind of look like a wheel. Funny you should say that. It's called a color wheel. I did it on purpose. See, it's easy to remember what I just told you. Just look here, here, and here on the color wheel. Yellow, red, blue, the primaries, exactly. These are the primary colors and when you mix them, you get the secondary colors. Yellow and red make orange, red and blue make purple and blue and yellow make green. You can move around the wheel that way. Look at the hair, look at the special colors, the spectrum girls. And now here's your home's great control. Welcome to the Gray Neutral Show.
Today we're pleased as punch to have us our guests, the spectrum girl. Wow, you are some rowdy bunch and colorful too. How about introducing yourselves? All right, I'm Yellow, I'm a primary color and I'm hot. I remind people of warm things like the sun and egg yolks and stuff. Many people associate me with happiness, I'm yellow. You most certainly are yellow and the next to you is, red, red, also primary, also hot. John, make you feel angry, I mean you're seeing red, right? People use me to convey anger and stuff like that. Okay, red, nice to meet you. And next to you is... Well, I am Morin John's eye and I am hot too. I really should be because I'm made by mixing yellow and red together and they're both hot. I'm a secondary color and I like it, so don't you? Okay, are all the spectrum girls hot? I mean, you look pretty hot to me.
You're quite the deal with, aren't you? Because I blew and I'm cool. I make you think of calm things like water and the sky. I'm a primary color and I can meet with yellow to make green. I'm red to make purple. I mean, what are rubber cool, don't you think? I mean, we all work well and get on quite well. But we're different too. We're cool colors and they're warm ones. Together we can do so much. Yeah, and you'll rather neutral on you kind of like black and white and gray. You're very neutral. Well, I've always prided myself on being neutral. Oh no. You're not a neutral. Oh no, you're a neutral. You're a neutral. You're a neutral. Oh, no. You're a neutral. You're a neutral. It's not a neutral. It's not a neutral. Quite a bunch, don't you think? Ha-ha-ha. You. You colorful. Ha-ha-ha-ha. Uh-oh. Me too, evidently. Don't worry, Arty. You just mixed the colors a bit further.
See? This orange has more red in it. the screen has more yellow. These are all colors on the color wheel. They're called intermediate colors. They failed the test for advanced. Ha ha already. You can keep mixing things on the color wheel and get any color you'd ever want. The warm colors are over here and the cool ones are over here. Oh yes, muddy pants. Hey, what about gray? And you'll notice that's what all the sophisticated people in the room are wearing this year. Well, first off, you're not a person and yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, sure. Okay, but what about gray, sister? Gray, black and white are neutral. You need these two when you paint. You can mix them with colors and make even more colors like dark green and pink. This orange makes me feel all warm and
toasty like a sunset. Paintings are wonderful that way, don't you think? Are there any paintings that make you feel a certain way? Are there any colors that bring back memories for you? Arty? Arty? Well, this green here makes me feel cool. It's a cucumber. Okay, well, I'm getting a little misty. Arty, come here. There's something I want to show you. This dusky rose evokes such a sense of warmth. Look, is it me or is it getting out in here? And these blues and greens are cool, don't you think? Well, I got a sudden urge to fly south. So you see Arty, color can evoke feelings. For instance,
if I say hot sun, what color do you think of? Let me think hot sun yellow. And if I say cool water, cool water. So that's why color is so important to you. I find that I can say things with colors and shapes that I can't say any other way. Things I have no words for. Arty? Arty, are you okay? Me? Well, yes. It's just Georgia. I've got Georgia on my mind. Georgia, what is it? Peaches? Southern hospitality? You know, down there, they eat peaches. Light your tongue. Not mine. That's too much information for me, Posey. Hey, hang on a second.
Let me show you something. Ready? Catch. Oh, I hate this part. Georgia, okay. I love her work. These colors are beautiful, not to mention the shapes. Yeah, color. You know, I helped her with that. The primaries, secondaries, neutrals, warms, cools. Yeah, I don't know whether or not she would have made it without me. You are some pigeon, Arty. You are right. You see, I'm agreeing with you. You thought I blew it. Didn't think I read the writing on the wall, did you? Aren't you? Aren't you glad I'm here? Oh, gosh, I am good. Not bad for a neutral kind of bird.

- Series Description
- "'Posie Paints' is a childrens' series designed to teach the basic concepts of visual art and introduce the idea of art appreciation to an early elementary audience. Through music, humor and animation, 'Posie Paints' presents the sometimes complicated concepts of visual design in a manner which engages youngsters aged 5-8. The series is also noteworthy for its use of a fully computer animated character who interacts with the lead actress in a live-action setting. In a learning-based program, an animated character is still relatively rare, and it has greatly appealed to a number of young children who have viewed the production. Because most programming aimed at children tends to have a long 'shelf-life', 'Posie Paints' was created with an eye toward the technological future. The entire series was shot using state-of-the-art digital video cameras (Digibeta and High Definition) in the 16:9 widescreen format. Although the first dubs are being distributed in a standard letterboxed format to fit current television sets, future versions will be available in a standard letterboxed format to fit current television sets, future versions will be available in true digital widescreen as the playback and viewing technology inevitably finds its way into schools and homes. Because the subject matter is virtually timeless, we are attempting, through high production values and cutting-edge technology to create a television program that will entertain and educate young people for many years to come."--1999 Peabody Awards entry form.
