In 1988, an extraordinary thing happened in the world of animation. The film "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?"( Directed by Robert Zemekis, animation directed by Richard Williams) was released. The film gleefully celebrated the kind of imaginative slapstick cartoon violence that was the staple of the most popular short cartoon classics that were made during the period from around 1940 till the decline in the year that the film takes place,1947. Cartoon lover's eyes popped like Tex Avery wolves all over the world for this caliber of animation hadn't been seen since...well, 1947. The film was a major hit, and a powerful shot in the arm for the until then sluggish animation business. It was also in 1988 that I became associated with the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon Art in Dover, New Jersey. The next year, Milt left the school, but I stayed on as an animation instructor and have since been teaching a course in what the school lists as "life drawing". What follows are the notes for my class.
