Lecture & Book Signing: History of Animation Industry in CA with Andrew Farago
Free Event @ California Historical Society
Few cartoons have been able to capture the attention of multiple generations like the Looney Tunes, they are the animated family we grew up with. The timeless generational appeal of the Looney Tunes is celebrated in Andrew Farago’s book The Looney Tunes Treasury: whether it’s Bugs Bunny or Yosemite Sam, each character gives their own off-beat look at the animation industry, the creative forces who gave the characters their unequivocal look, attitude and voices.
Farago will discuss the history of the animation industry in California and how Looney Tunes became a timeless animated classic while paying homage to the directors, draftsmen, writers, and composers that helped to create characters and cartoons that could thrill audiences with a catchy tune or slapstick comedy.
