Bill Tytla - Terrytoons - ear flaps

Here's what Tytla can do with no direction and not much money. Pretty cute!
He's probably remembering some stuff from Country Cousin that his pal, Art Babbitt did a few years earlier, but it's a little more mid-40s style and less loose.

I remember this one! Might Mouse is great drunk. Tytla's animation unfettered! Although, I think there are better clips than this one in that cartoon, to be frank.

The floppy ear weight on Mighty Mouse doesn't feel right, but the acting in Mighty Mouse and the expression in the Lion's face is spot on!

Back at animation school, when our teacher talked about Bill Tytla, he said "after Disney, he went to work on that Terrytoons crap".

I think he was being a little hard on that studio. I love Mighty Mouse and Heckle & Jeckle. Deputy Dawg has some fun stuff to watch too. I don't think it's a bad little studio at all.

It had to be tough for Tytla after the support system he enjoyed at Disney to return to Terry's, where there were no pencil tests and the animators animated on newsprint, grinding out footage. Yet he still managed to get a few good licks in.

Hey! You're right about all our modern day cartoons that our world posses.They are terrible. Number one, they're not funny. Number 2, they have some of the worst story plots, voice acting, and animation I have ever seen. I was watching this one a couple months ago called Happy feet, and it was the worst feature of the century. I don't care how much they spent on the animation- IT MADE ME WANT TO TEAR MY EYES OUT OF THEIR SOCKETS. It was so bland and ugly.The voices were a quick way to hearing loss. But the worst, most boring thing of it had to be the story line and the humor. They were way to obvious and they really didn't help the clearly-visible flaws they already had. The millionaire producers had a great chance to create a great animated feature, and yet the movie sucked in all its qualities. On rottentomatoes.com, this movie recieved a 74%. Some people have obviosly been given this too much credit, and I hope the producers get off their dope and get it through their heads to not produce a sequel, as it was the worst animated pictures of all time.
I have been trying to learn how to draw, so maybe I can fill the world's depressing animation slots with a few joyful ones. If you have any personal tips for me, I'd be glad to hear them.
