I just stumbled upon animator Nancy Beiman’s new blog. Beiman, a very talented cartoonist, director & teacher – and former neighbor of mine – has posted a great quote from Greg Ford on his reaction to LOONATICS:
“They are the perfect models for the current era,” Greg told me. “Bugs Bunny was created during a populist era in the second Roosevelt administration, and a few years later, he fought the Fascists.
These characters are the Fascists.”
