Yogi’s Animation Studio
Who knew Yogi and his friends were such talented artists? Clearly studio heads Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera had a little help in animating the Stone Age family. Note the models of Fred Flintstone, Barney Rubble, with Wilma and Betty! Even the Ranger is getting into the act by doing storyboards. What an inventive and creative way of combining some of the most beloved characters in TV history and showing all the aspects of creating an animated cartoon in one picture.
“Yogi's Animation Studio” was created by master animator Willie Ito, who has had a storied career that has spanned over 60 years, and has had a hand in some of the greatest classic cartoons in almost every major animated studio as a character animator and layout artist. Disney, Warner Bros., Bob Clampett Productions, and Hanna Barbera have all benefitted from his creativity and talent. The artwork is printed in the fine art Giclee process on fine art paper from Ito’s watercolor original art. Each print is then hand-numbered and then signed by Willie Ito. It is offered in an edition of 50.
