Animation of The Amazing World of GumballEdit

The first ten episodes or so were animated slightly differently from the later episodes. All the episodes have mixed media, with CGI dinosaurs, mixed in with claymation balls of clay, and 2D flowers and ghosts. However, the animations of the 2D characters became slightly more jerky and generally cartoony than the first episode's more lifelike motions. Gumball's body also changes in form slightly, with his fangs rounded and his eyes slightly smaller than before, All of which changed by the first season finale, as the animations in the last 2 episodes seemed less jerky and more lifelike, along with Gumball's fangs being sharp again and his eyes being bigger. Also, unlike most cartoons, it uses backgrounds from the real world, due to the reason that the creator worked on commercials for the UK before creating the show, learning how to give a realistic feeling to the background.
