Lloyd Turner Interview - Storyboard Artist/Writer at Looney Tunes

If you were interested in yesterday's post about how stories are written at cartoon studios, there is a really fun behind-the-scenes- interview with one of the storyboard artists/writers at WB in the 1940s at Mike Barrier's site.

Lloyd Turner was in Art Davis' crew and later worked for Bob Clampett on Time For Beany.
The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

He went on to Rocky and Bullwinkle and other Jay Ward cartoons.

He also wrote many live action sitcoms, including The Jeffersons, All In The Family and Mork and Mindy - unless there were 2 writers named Lloyd Turner!

Anyway, read the interview and you'll get a real feel of how they go about writing cartoons, with all the dirt and studio politics involved!
