Good morning! This day in Disney history, Jan 15th, 1913. Animator, director, writer & Disney Legend Jack Hannah is born in Arizona. At the Walt Disney Studios he will start as an inbetweener & clean-up artist on many early Mickey, Donald & Silly Symphony cartoons. Hannah will also help Carl Barks (the man who will draw the comic book adventures of Donald Duck) create his first two comic book stories. He will later go on to direct some 94 Disney animated films. "Not bad for a guy, who, as Jack said, was hired by Disney on "a two-week tryout that lasted thirty years." ;) Hannah retired in 1959. Then, in 1975, he was asked by the Studio to develop & direct the School of Character Animation at the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts), which Walt Disney helped found. He served at CalArts for eight years. Jack Hannah died June 11, 1994, in Burbank, California. For more about this incredible Disney legend: Do you have a favorite Jack Hannah short? As always, thanks for reading! :)

Yes... My favorite is called Apple Core staring Donald Duck and Chip n Dale. Honestly, I did not know anything about Jack Hannah before your post, except that he appears on many Disney credits. Thank you SMK! Excellent Disney history. You amaze me. - MyPark   1298.8 #161 1-15-13 10:02AM Like  Reply
Excellent choice MyPark! Thank you for answering my question! He is credited for introducing Chip and Dale in 1943! You're a very kind man, I simply share what I read. Nothing to be amazed by! Lol but thank you! - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 1-15-13 10:30AM
