Uncredited Animators

A call back to this post regarding misinformation on the internet. Here's another winner on youtube - many titles are rife with imaginary credits. It looks as though this person pulled names out of a hat for his choices.

FYI - if you reference the call back post, someone went and cleaned up the Wikipedia credits.

Those "credits" are the ones from Wikipedia. It's weird how many people believe in these Wiki stories. That's just like that time they said "Rodeo Romeo" was produced in Cinecolor, but it wasn't, it was produced in Technicolor.
BTW, the Famous Studios page was edited. I can't believe there aren't any notes about uncredited animators. But, there is one note that says that Jim Tyer animated on "The Royal-Four Flusher". Bob, is that correct???

Bob Jaques said...

Yes - that's true. Tyer worked on The Royal-Four Flusher from the opening shot until the scene where the lion bites its tail. (I'm not positive about the scenes with Bluto on the horse - they may have been done by William Henning who was an animal specialist) Johnny Gent takes over for a while after Tyer.

An then the animation was taken by the Johnson crew, right?

Bob Jaques said...

Correct - the rest of the animation in the cartoon was done by Johnny Gent, Frank Endres and William Henning, all of whom were the mainstay animators of the Johnson crew.

Few things are as beautiful as a Jim Tyer animated Olive Oyl calling a squirrel "bunny".

I rejected this comment by mistake from Yowp - sorry about that:

Some good intentioned decided to "correct" information on one of my YT cartoons by telling me who the "real" voice artist was. He got the information from Guess-ipedia, likely from someone who has only heard of a voice actor if he got a screen credit, and makes his "fact" based on that extremely limited knowledge.
