Instagram Photo of the Day Challenge 5/16

By askdotcom // May 16th, 2013

It’s another Throwback Thursday photo challenge here on the Ask Instagram. The question today was, “Can you guess who this swingin’ sixties band we’ve been dreamin’ about is?”

Hopefully you picked up on the California Dreamin’ referenced, and guessed The Mamas and The Papas.

The group was together from 1965-168, and briefly reunited in 1971. They released five studio albums, and seventeen singles, six of which made it to the top ten charts. Worldwide, the sold close to 40 million records! Did you know that they were originally called the Magic Circle?

Our photo of the day challenge came from the question of the day over on the ask.com homepage, “What was the first fully computer animated feature film?”

Did the above close up photo give you a hint??

It was Toy Story! Some of you may remember when it came out in 1995, and were hooked, anxiously awaiting Toy Story 2 and 3. It was actually Pixar’s first full feature length film.¬†Pixar, who had been producing short animated films to promote their computers, was approached by Disney to produce a computer-animated feature after the success of the short¬†Tin Toy, which is told from the perspective of a toy. Even though Pixar’s technology has grown leaps and bounds, I think it’s safe to say that Toy Story withstands the test of time.
