About Tokartoons

Tokartoons was founded as a partnership between educator Bette Lewis Tokar, Ed.D and writer / artist / animator Rob Tokar that is dedicated to creating animation for education, entertainment and presentations. Years ago, in response to a decided lack of engaging educational videos, we created our first animated short; a three-minute video called "The Ice Cream Man: A Run-In with the Law of Diminishing Marginal Utility." We debuted this video at the Annual Teaching Economics Conference at Robert Morris University to a packed room and the response was overwhelmingly positive, to say nothing of gratifying. 
With the our second project, a ten-minute video called "The Martians Invade the Shoe-niverse: A Tale of the Six-Legged Race and the Long Run," we were honored with the Ray L. Taylor Award for Faculty Development from Holy Family University and again debuted the animation at the Annual Teaching Economics Conference. 
Since that time, these two videos have been used as teaching tools by other educators in colleges and high schools and now they are available online along with soon-to-be-released videos Jack and the Barter Talk: How To Make Change When Spending a Cow" and an explainer about VAT (Value Added Tax). 
If you'd like to learn more about any of our Tokartoons, check out Tokartoons.com. We are currently seeking sponsorship and anything else that can help us brighten up the study of "the Dismal Science" of Economics. Let us know if you have any insights!
