Champion of Justice - Johnny Gent
Johnny Gent was at Terry before he started his tenure at Famous, and I'm trying to find out what he did on those early 40s films.
I think this piece, from Champion of Justice (1944), is his work. I really like the animation of the nephew here, and the posing and timing looks like Gent's work. Anyone else agree? Disagree?
There's a slight discrepency with this film's release date, as it is within a few months from the first cartoon he animated at Famous on. Gent said he worked on Mighty Mouse when he was still Super Mouse, so who knows.
