Hubley Commercial: Dog- More fun from Scribner

I like how each dog not only looks different but has its own unique walk.

This is total custom made animation.

If only we could get rid of the modern cookie cutter mentality of stock animation, stock character designs and stock everything and go back to when animation was creative and fun!

Although i don't always agree with your tone, you've done a great job illustrating how 50s designs can be handled with inventive expressive animation and drawings.

Niiiiiice!!!! I love the walks and way the dogs are whisked around the corner. As you said before, the UPA style works best when it's fully animated in commercials as it is here.

this is way better than the one with the bird. I love the chaplin walk when the dog goes look what the others are doing.

John...I would love to see more of your celeb-caracitures! It would be a nice break from all these lessons!
I really enjoyed those ball-bustin sketches!

I dont understand why they dont make commercials that are fun and lighthearted like this anymore.
This one is simple,entertaining and memorable,hell,I'd store MY bones at Bank of America after seeing this!
I think most people just tune out the whole obnoxious mess of noise sponsors dole out now,(I know I do).
Keep posting these Scribner commercials!

Hi John,
just dropping by for an off-topic comment, but I´ve recently made a Flash animation which has been selected for AnimaMundi, and I´d really like you to take a look at it, ´cos its character and animation style are mainly based on Looney Tunes shorts... its English title is "Blug the Toad and the Firefly", and the link is

Thanks for your attention,
Rod Tramonte ;-)
