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!

Casey Bats Again
Happy New Year!
Here's a Disney cartoon I was watching on the "Melody Time" DVD (you know, the one where they digitally erased Pecos Bill's cigarette). Right when I saw the opening credits with the two credited animators, John Sibley and Fred Moore, I said to myself "This had better be one of the prettiest cartoons ever made!"
I'm not a giant Moore fan, but appeal is an important factor in animation, and Moore's drawings and animation sure as hell have that. I think this is the last cartoon he ever worked on, as he died almost two years before it was released.
