Great Minds Thinking Alike
Both Mark Evanier (at his long-running blog) and Ed Squair (at his brand-new blog) have posted about that terrific cereal spokes-cat and all-around wonderful cartoon character, Tony the Tiger. First stop over at Mark’s neighborhood and see an actual Sugar Frosted Flakes animated commercial (Mark rightly points out the cereal should always be referred to as Sugar Frosted Flakes, no matter what Kellogg's says) and you’ll not only see Tony (and Tony Jr.) but you'll also hear the great singer/voice artist Thurl Ravenscroft (a vocal favorite in more than one Disney production), and then drop by Ed’s place and see the Tony cel from a similar commercial Ed actually has in his collection—each designed in that sophisticated Cartoon Modern style. Both Mark and Ed have good blogs. Good? They’re G-R-R-R-R-REAT!
