Remembering Vincent Cafarelli

Vinnie Cafarelli

This video offers a look at the memorial celebration for New York animation legend Vincent Cafarelli that took place on Friday, January 6. There are glimpses of Vinny from old home movies interspersed between the memorial clips. The lovely event was attended by a who’s who of the New York animation community. See if you can spot Vinny Bell, Candy Kugel, Howard Beckerman, Don Poynter, Tony Eastman, J. J. Sedelmaier, Jimmy Picker, David Levy, John Canemaker, Doug Crane, Michael Sporn, Larry Ruppel, Richard O’Connor, George Griffin, Debra Solomon and John Dilworth, among many others.

  • Thanks Amid for posting this video for those who missed or could not attend what felt like one of those once-in-a-lifetime events.

    Candy did a terrific job of putting together a very fitting tribute to Vinnie. All around were videos, drawings and stills of his work and life at Buzzco.

    The history represented in the room that night was staggering (from the 40’s to present day). It made me feel all warm inside just to be a part of it.
