This week’s animator breakdown features one of my absolute favorite Disney animated shorts. Its been at the top of my list, right from the very beginning!
The Greedy sequence was largely the work of genius animator Emery Hawkins, and its a marvel of interesting timing, funny visual ideas and funny drawing.
This weeks animator in comics is Harvey Eisenberg, who drew comics with Disney, MGM and Hanna-Barbera characters!
In addition to classic comedy writing and performing, Bill Dana also left a legacy of cartoon magic with two albums he recorded for Hanna-Barberas short-lived label.
