Behind the Scenes: Music Starz Storyboard!


Before an animator created one of the music videos that you can watch in the Music Starz section of Webkinz, an artist first created a storyboard for the video. A storyboard is a series of drawings that are used to show the sequence of scenes planned for a video. This gives the animator a visual script to work from when creating the actual video.


Take a look at some of the panels from the “Scaredy Cat” storyboard compared to actual frames from the music video. In this video, a group of Webkinz go “trick or treating” and end up at a Halloween dance!

Watch the complete music video to “Scardey Cat” in the Music Starz section of Webkinz. You can  access Music Starz from the THINGS TO DO menu or, CLICK HERE to watch the video on the Webkinz YouTube channel!

    Great! It makes sense they would release this, Halloween coming up and everything. :) I like how the cat is kind and helpful to everybody, and then finally the people she helped get to help her as well. :) That just seems really sweet and loving, I love the music video for it. :)

    I always wondered, how come you stopped doing music videos?

    • oats34WK says:

      Yeah I was wondering the same thing.

    • NMKID says:

      I was wondering that too! When you guys were making music videos, I was always looking forward to the next one? What happened?? Did you run out of ideas or tunes? Please start making them again…. I miss them.

      • Gennelle Webkinz says:

        We didn’t run out of ideas. It takes a lot of time and work to make music videos and the team decided to move their focus to other things.

        • dune456 says:

          I am like everyone who LOVES the music videos. It has been one of the BIG reasons I LOVE Webkinz so much!!! This is one of my favorite video’s cause Sasha (my black cat) is featured in this video!! But my ultimate one is Nine Lives because the Words hit home and go straight to my heart. Was lucky to get CD on Road Trip and we pop it in the radio and drive around singing all the Webkinz songs as a family. And Always put it in and sing when we go on Road Trips to see the Road Trip people who were greatly missed this year. I love the people that host and create all the wonderful things for us. I’ve met such nice people working 4 Ganz. Also met other families at events that share and play together.

          • balletbear5M says:

            Awesome dune456!:) My favorite is where did you get those stripes! It is such an upbeat song and makes me want to dance!:)

        • NMKID says:

          Thanks for that response Gennelle! Too bad. At least we can be thankful for the music videos that we have. I hope you guys could bring them back at one point.

          • playnowpuppy says:

            Yeah I don’t think Kinz will bring them back any time soon but maybe yeah, someday :) :) :)

          • ultimatewebbiefan2000 says:

            I wish they would bring back kinztunes too. My pets and I always looked forward to them each month. *sigh*

          • playnowpuppy says:

            Yeah I did too :( *sigh*

          • style808 says:

            I loved kinztunes :( ganz ! I think you should bring them back !!!!!!! please !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
