The animated title sequence of the 1992 family comedy Honey, I Blew Up The Kid is 3 minutes long and features a series of "playful hurt gags" which were designed and conceived by Robert Peluce and directed by Bob Kurtz.

'Honey, I Blew Up The Kid' animated title sequence by Bob Kurtz

Bob Kurtz: "At that time, I had a designer working for years with me called Robert Peluce. For Honey, I Blew Up the Kid, we both wrote sequences. It's really his design on that one, and I directed. It was so much fun to do. I hate to say 'playful hurt gags'."

“For a film from 1992, a title sequence of three minutes is unusually long. Even though this opener is clearly meant to entertain the audience and make them laugh, as much as present the main credits."

Penelope Gottlieb's chose a typeface with rounded sans-serif letters that seem inflated like a balloon or a bubblegum; the perfect fit for this animation.
