Several years ago I was invited onto Stuart Shostack’s internet radio program, Stu’s Show, to discuss the history of Terrytoons animation studio. Somehow we never got around to it. It’s been a running joke of my visits there ever since. So this week we’ve decided to cut the listener phone calls, dispense with the news and just concentrate on discussing the story behind the company that brought us Mighty Mouse, Heckle and Jeckle, Hashimoto Mouse, Tom Terrific, Mighty Heroes, Deputy Dawg, Gandy Goose and Farmer Alfalfa. At least, we’re gonna try.
To be clear, we will NOT be accepting any questions regarding DVD news of any kind; if you want to send in a specific question regarding Terrytoons you may do so at comments-at-stusshow.com today only. Oh, and as a side note, don’t miss the first half hour – June Foray will appear in-studio to discuss her reactions to winning her first Emmy Award. Should be a great show. Tune-in live on Wednesday at 7pm Eastern/4pm Pacific right here!
