I will model Mr. Peeblesí pet shop from The Magilla Gorilla Show (Hanna-Barbera, 1963 and 1967). I like the idea of the display window showing the bananas, Magillaís chair and the TV.
Magilla Gorilla spent his time languishing in the front display window of Mr. Peebles' pet shop, eating bananas and being a drain on the businessman's finances. Mr. Peebles marked down Magilla's price considerably, but Magilla was invariably only purchased for a short time, typically by some thieves who needed a gorilla to break into a bank or by an advertising agency looking for a mascot for their new product. The customers always ended up returning Magilla, forcing Mr. Peebles to refund their money. Magilla often ended each episode with his catchphrase, "We'll try again next week."
The only customer who was truly interested in obtaining the trouble-prone ape for good was a little girl named Ogee, who, unfortunately, could never convince her parents to let her keep Magilla.

It's funny because in some episodes the environment changes. This is the case for the light , the signs and the buildings surrounding the pet shop...haha
lol I saw the same thing maria! think they we're more about the story in that years... cuz many cartoons had different colors and shapes depending on the episodes!

hey this is starting to look great. You've got the cartooney style down to a t. well done
Thanks @purplemikey and @Teamal. I like the idea to keep the funny shapes and perspectives they have used.
I'm doing the textures now.
Beautifull work Mariamarga! I'm eager to see the textures ended...
Very nice Maria. I love it!
Thanks @Alter and @Diagram
I like your observatory too @Diagram
I’m texturing now, but I need to tweak and fix some things in the models, as the buildings' windows.
Very cool mariamarga, loving the cartoony style!
