I’ve been frequently asked to compile a “top ten” of my favorite Paramount cartoons. The problem is: how do you compare a 60s Shamus Culhane to a Bill Tytla Popeye?
For the period from September 1962 to August 1963, Seymour Kneitel and crew kept busy producing 13 theatrical originals for Paramount, were deep into the King Features Trilogy, and were preparing and producing some new Casper cartoons for ABC.
Though Popeye was no longer being produced, the cartoons released in the 1957-58 season would be a last hurrah for the veteran crew before the budgets were completely slashed, staff was cut and the production order reduced.
