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!

Amid Amidi just wrote in passing that Paul Julian was Warners' greatest background painter, and I have to strongly agree. I didn't feel like making montages out of them, but here's some BGs of his from Friz Freleng's "Mouse Mazurka".
And here's the hilariously brilliant cartoon, another entry in Freleng's 'musical' series. Gerry Chiniquy animated the great opening and closing dances. It's really funny 'limited' movement, as it doesn't use squash and stretch as much as other animators (or in this case, directors) would use, but it's still pretty wild stuff.
