Art Babbitt In The (1968) News
Tulgey Wood visitors undoubtedly often visit the blog of artist Patrick Owsley, a visual feast for animation fans. A couple of days ago, Patrick ran something of historical interest: a 1968 issue of The Exposure Sheet newsletter from Hanna-Barbera Studios. Of particular interest in this issue of the H-B house organ is an interview with legendary animator Art Babbitt. In addition article properly credits Art's contributions as a major Disney artist but wisely avoids any mention of that messy 1941 strike business. Take a look at the entire newsletter at Patrick's blog (you will have to scroll down to the posts for Friday, November 29, 2008) here. You'll find plenty of other cartoon-related goodies there too.
