Why use ToonUps?

The Concept…
First You Laugh, Then You Learn!

At ToonUps our goal is to provide businesses with the tools they need to create a positive work environment through improved communications. We have developed hundreds of animations which integrate humor into important business messages. Our short, humorous animations help organizations train and communicate with employees in a way that’s both enjoyable and effective!

A day without laughter is a day wasted.

Charles Chaplin

How humor improves retention
  • Laughter causes our bodies to release endorphins, and reduces the hormone released during stress response.
  • Our heart rate quickens, our brains become more active.
  • Humor puts us in a better state of mind and makes us more receptive.
  • Our minds and bodies make a connection between what we’ve seen or heard and the good feeling that followed.
  • All of this leads to…improved retention!

Laughter is an instant vacation.

Milton Berle

How do ToonUps animations help?
  • Our animations feature humorous scenarios and clever management messages and simple tips to help deliver the message.
  • ToonUps’ animated messages combine humor with important messages to make sure the message is not only heard…but retained.
  • They are short…only about 30-60 seconds long…so they quickly and effectively communicate your message.
  • Our minds and bodies make a connection between what we’ve seen or heard and the good feeling that followed.
  • And, they can be sent via email, used in PowerPoint presentations, posted to an intranet site and more.

Laughter is the shortest distance between two people.
