but while we were doing this stuff Ralph came in one day and said Keith Richards asked him to do an animated video for the Harlem Shuffle:
We had an amazing crew for this
Bob Jaques - co-director/animator
Lynne Naylor - animator
Pat Ventura - animator
Gary (Gabby) Paine- animator
Jim Smith - layout
Phil Philipson -BG painting
Linda Gerlach - Ink and Paint
Did Bruce Timm work on it? Jim Gomez? Rebecca Reese?
If I missed anyone, let me know so I can add them.
I have lots of zany stories from that golden period, but am swamped working on my Cans Without Labels Kickstarter cartoon.
Speaking of Kickstarter, Ralph has his dream project up and you only have 5 days left to help him lay his most personal and intimate feelings out naked for the voyeuristic world to enjoy.
You get get some swell rewards too like original drawings of bums by the master himself!
...and if you are a young cartoonist animator starting out, I would strongly suggest you offer your work and soul to Ralph and help him out on the project. Working for Ralph is an essential character building episode for every cartoonist. We all need him to have an ongoing studio. It's bootcamp for quality cartoonists and benefits the whole industry.
Ralph is an international treasure, a true original.
