Cardtoon - magic

This is one of the best selling card tricks of all time. If you've never seen it, you're in for a treat!

In effect, a spectator names any card. You then show that each card in your deck has a little stick-figure magician drawn on it. As the magician flicks through the cards, the drawings become an animated cartoon! The stick-figure pulls a card from his top hat and turns it over to reveal the spectator`s named card!

The deck is printed on CartaMundi cards.

SUMMARY: Charming animation card trick that people love

This trick deck is a great stop-motion animation type effect by Dan Harlan. It's one of the more memorable magic tricks I do, especially when you personalize the apprentice magician and really get into the presentation and story-line: people love it and beg to see it again.

The handling is not difficult to do, and basically requests of a single and simple "move" that you will need to practice but should master easily.

There are actually two versions of the card-toon deck, and this is the original, where a stickman magician pulls the selected card out of a hat. The method and handling of the sequel, Card-Toon 2, is exactly the same, the only difference being the artwork of the animation: the stickman magician is a circus performer who flies out of a cannon, and bounces off a wall holding the selected card. Most people seem to have a slight preference for the original Card-Toon 1 with its more traditional magic flavour, but both are good.

Spectators love the effect of the flipboard animation, which at times can overshadow the magic of the final reveal, but either way it almost always goes over well.
