"We wanted the moment where the Croods step into this new world to be reminiscent of the moment where Dorothy leaves Kansas and steps into Oz." — Chris Sanders, via Animated Views


Originally, Stitch was going to be an intergalactic gangster, Jumba was going to be a disgruntled member of his gang who was left behind during a heist and was going after him as revenge, and the other members of the gang would have been the ones who came to get him in the third act.

I did this for the ever-awesome Stan Sakai, to give to him at SDCC this weekend. Thanks, Stan, for all you’ve given to all of us through the years!  Inks with kuretakezig brush pens and Copic markers for color.

Production backgrounds for Disney’s Lady and the Tramp.


A piece of promotional artwork for The Huckleberry Hound Show, published in a 1958 issue of Mediascene magazine. Nobody seems to know who the artist is.


LIFE Magazine has released online 850 photos taken in November 1960 Hanna-Barbera studios during the early days of production on the Flintstones.

The photos include voice recording sessions with Mel Blanc (Barney) and Alan Reed (Fred), photos of Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera with their families, photos of the both of them working with writers, artists, and lots candids of all the various people who worked at the studio at the time. This is an amazing and unprecedented look into what it was like making cartoons in this time in history, really the find of the year for animation enthusiasts.

Above are only a couple. We see an female inker working on a cel of Fred, another photo of an inker working on a cel (at her home!), animator Carlo Vinci animating a scene, Bill Hanna having a barbecue with his family, and a few of the studio workers who had formed their own bowling league, “the Yogi Bears”.
