Nearing the end isn’t quite reflected in these chatty columns from the Warner Club News. The studio is transitioning away from its regular schedule of theatrical shorts – and towards a new direction with commercials and The Incredible Mr. Limpet. People leaving the studio and corporate downsizing is not reflected here… thus more about vacations, baby showers and birthdays. (Note: we are missing the final few paragraphs go the July column).
The studio gets a visit from an actual Road-Runner… and Chuck Jones sends a note from Massachusetts – during his ‘unpaid leave’. This would be the last notice for Chuck here while under Warners employ. Next stop, MGM.
Lee Mishkin and Alan Zazlove join the studio – prerhaps to begin work on Limpet(??)…
It’s reported here that Freleng is off on vacation in Europe – He would return next year, as co-owner of DePatie-Freleng. This is last newsletter we have for 1962.
