Please take a few minutes to view this charming bit of animation from Simon Taylor. I have loved animation since my mother took me to see Walt Disney’s “Bambi” when I was about five. Years later, I walked into Hanna-Barbera Studios and was introduced to a lovely woman by the name of Jayne Barbera. She gave me a royal tour of the studio, including the opportunity to sit and watch an animation cameraman at work. Everyone was so kind to me there. I was about 19 years old at that point. Before I left, I was given a set of animation cels, brushes, animation pegs and paints. Animation is a fascinating art and often the artists involved are some of the most wonderful people…
