Favorite Marty Taras Scenes

Marty Taras has become one of my very favorite animators. His work is really slick and well-timed, and was great at doing Tex Avery style takes. He adds what I call 'jazz' to his work, that extra spark that separates him from his contemporaries.

This is a long post, be sure you scroll down to view all of them!

Watching these DailyMotion clips alone shows how lively and wonderful animated cartoons used to be. Why don't we have guys animating like Marty today?

BTW, I've launched a new blog where I'll post all of my non-animation related commie-bitch views. More posts to come on both blogs!
