This was a book that I had hunted to find again in book shops wherever I was for the last fifteen to twenty years.
I was given my Uncle's copy of an earlier edition of one of the books, that form a part of this book, when I was in High School. I wanted to learn to draw cartoons similar to the ones I saw in 'Disney' movies, 'Bugs Bunny', 'Tom and Jerry' and all the other classic cartoons I loved. I had looked at other books on cartooning but had been unimpressed as they simply showed you how to draw cartoons for comic strips, or for newspapers, which was not what I was looking for. So I was overjoyed to finally have a book that showed me how to draw the kinds of cartoons I wanted to draw. Unfortunately I lost this initial book only a few years afterwards much to my frustration.
Imagine my delight when I finally rediscovered it - but hugely expanded - here on Amazon. I highly recommend this book to anyone who, like myself, is looking to draw similarly to 'Disney', and all the classic cartoons. The author of the book was himself, one of the main animators on Disney film's such as 'Fantasia', 'Pinnochio' and 'Bambi' as well as working on 'Tex Avery' cartoons as well as 'The Flintstones'. (Prepare to meet some old friends while leafing through it's pages.)
While it may not be as in depth as other books on the subject, it is a great place to start. Also from what I understand many of the animators of 'Disney' movies have it in their libraries and still refer to it from time to time.
