What's That Funky Smell?

Many everyday objects are often overlooked. They have become engrained in our lives, and we often forget that they were the product of someone’s thought that lead to an innovation.

Based on an article in the NY times "Who Made That" column, "What's that Funky Smell?" is the story of the invention of the air freshener. Made to reflect the cartoons of the 50's (when the air freshener was invented), the animation tells the story of Julius Sämann and the events that led to the invention of this everyday object.
