    Doug Wildey The Funky Phantom Concept Art (Hanna-Barbera, 1971)

    Doug Wildey The Funky Phantom Concept Art (Hanna-Barbera, 1971). The Funky Phantom premiered on 9/11/71 on ABC. What many people may not have known is that early development for this show was done by none other than the comic art and animation designing legend, Doug Wildey. This is original concept artwork of Skip Gilroy, April Stewart, Augie Anderson and the ghosts -- Jonathan Wellington, "Mudsy" Muddlemore, and his dog. It is interesting that the character design is nowhere near what ended up in terms of character appearance. This looks more like Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys meeting a real ghost. Also, in the final cartoon Mudsy the Ghost, a cat named Boo, and the kids have a dog instead. The piece would have been used to pitch networks, sponsors, in-studio help and Hanna-Barbera Executives. The artwork is hand-signed Doug Wildey in bottom right corner. This gorgeous 22" x 15.5" original ink and marker artwork is mounted to a black 28" x 22" illustration board.

    Yankee Doodle Pigeon bowed in 1969, as a character on Dastardly and Muttley in Their Flying Machines. It seems the name of Yankee Doodle for a character was first considered in 1966 for a proposed WWI Series. These amazing montages showcase original artwork for a series that would have featured a flying ace named Yankee Doodle Daring, as well as villains Baron von Skull and Gen. Kondor Klaus. Displayed herein are 11 original character designs of these three characters. All are cut out and mounted to black presentation board of 22" x 28". Each board is hand-titled with character names in tempera showcard lettering, with copyright notices for Hanna-Barbera Productions at bottom. These would have been used to pitch networks, sponsors, staff, and H-B Executives. The artwork is from the hands of Alex Toth (1928-06) and Tony Sgroi (1924-98). One Yankee Doodle Daring piece is signed by Alex Toth. What a rare look into the inner workings of Hanna-Barbera during a fertile and prolific surge of creativity! Minor handling and edge wear. All artwork is rendered in graphite and black marker, with colored markers.

He animated characters for Fantasia (notably Mickey Mouse and Hyacinth Hippo) and also worked on Pinocchio(1940) and Bambi (1942).

He is famed for his animation of the sexy nightclub star Red in six of Tex Avery's M-G-M cartoons. In the 1960s he animated at Hanna-Barbera on The Flintstones and in subsequent years was involved in the development and production of animated films and commercials.

    Mr. Blair authored a number of art and animation instruction books published by Walter T. Foster. The first, Advanced Animation, was published in 1947 and revised several times into the 1990s.

    IMG_7908


    mrgirldance2 mrgirldance3

    This is artist-author Preston Blair's assemblage of fifteen (15) trimmed and mounted images of his drawings of Red Hot, the nightclub singer-dancer he animated in Tex Avery's M-G-M cartoons. Mr. Blair embellished them with touches of pencil and white opaque paint for reproduction as an illustration on page 7 of his 1980 art instruction book How to Animate Film Cartoons; it was also included in the 1994 edition titled Cartoon Animation on pages 170 and 171. The accompanying text reads:

    "This dancing girl action is built like stacking building blocks—one on top of another. The first drawings are rhythm-scribbles. As each is made the drawings are flipped to study how the action is progressing. When complete, and all the sketches are on the pegs, the actions may be revised, and revised, like changing dots in the pages of a flip-book. This girl's leg did not swing high and wide at first. I made a series of scribbles over the first crude sketches that revised this action. Then, these roughs were made of what I imagined seeing in these forms."

    Preston Blair began his career in animation with Walter Lantz and Charles Mintz in the 1930s before joining the Walt Disney Studio later in that decade. He animated characters for Fantasia (notably Mickey Mouse and Hyacinth Hippo) and also worked on Pinocchio (1940) and Bambi (1942). He left Disney after the 1941 strike for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. There he joined Fred "Tex" Avery's unit. He is famed for his animation of the sexy nightclub star Red in six of Tex Avery's M-G-M cartoons. In the 1960s he animated at Hanna-Barbera onThe Flintstones and in subsequent years was involved in the development and production of animated films and commercials.

    Mr. Blair authored a number of art and animation instruction books published by Walter T. Foster. The first, Advanced Animation, was published in 1947 and revised several times into the 1990s. His Cartoon Animation and Animation 1 remain in print today. Walter T. Foster—a well-known artist and teacher—began producing art instruction books from his home in Laguna Beach, California, in the 1930s.

    original production animation layout drawing pencil on untrimmed animation sheet, image size: 5.5" x 4.5"

    k286loop2

    This original animation layout drawing of Loopy de Loop was created by a Hanna-Barbera artist in development of scene 3 in the animated cartoon. The cartoon starts off with the kind-hearted Loopy on an idyllic walk through the "beautiful forest...where all the little creatures can play." When a scared rabbit runs by with a "hungry wolf" in hot pursuit, Loopy sets out: "I must stop that big bad wolf."

    The Loopy de Loop cartoons were the first theatrical releases produced by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera after they left Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and established their own studio. The series starring the French wolf debuted in 1959 and ran into 1965.

    The artist wrote the designation "K-28 Sc 3" at upper right and "6" at lower right to indicate this drawing's place in the film.
