It's always a joy whenever these rare photos pop up. It makes me wonder what might have happened to these guys and what they might be doing these days.

Speaking of which, how's it going for yourself, Bob?

Hey Bob. Just curious, did you ever meet Johnny Gent or any of these other great animators in person? I love seeing these type of animation artifacts. They're very insightful.

Hey Robert - I met with Johnny a couple of times. I also met Al Eugster, Dave Tendlar, Myron Waldman from Fleischer and Famous.
