The goal of this blog is to help people identify the many wonderful (and then not so wonderful) animators from the Golden Age of cartoons. Check back every day for more fun!

B-Day: Emery Hawkins
Yes, it's my favorite animator's turn now (get used to it!).
Here's one of my favorite pieces of his animation from "Hurdy Gurdy Hare". Excellent line of action in this scene, and the gorilla's goony expression after being soothed is beautiful.
My Internet connection has been unbelieveably shitty for the past few days (I can't even get to my email or eBay), so I'll put up some earlier clips (Scrappy, Captain and the Kids) from Hawkins later this week.
