Eddie Fitzgerald’s First Animation Job

Paul Fennell

Cartoonist Eddie Fitzgerald tells a hilarious story on his blog about his first animation job in 1979 at Filmation and his experiences with animation veteran Paul Fennell. The photo above (which I published in ANIMATION BLAST #8) shows Eddie’s bully, Paul Fennell, back in 1941, when Fennell owned the commercial studio Cartoon Films Ltd. Personally, I think Eddie could have taken him.
