    I don’t care about cartoons but I’d love to put something like this on ebay if I found it. I wonder what copyright laws say about art from the dumpster.

      I’d be curious to know about that as well.

      The ‘defacto’ I was always told, was that if it’s at the curb, in the garbage pile, it belongs to the finder. But then again, that may just be my own wishful thinking.

    Classic show business tale – it starts out with architectural drawings and ends up with close-ups of male boobage.

    Background layouts and not boards? Also, it sounds like Robert didn’t draw these but rescued them out of the dumpster. Still, awesome.

    It must have been hard to select the picture for the BB post from among all one of them on the source blog posting.

    Great stuff.
    How closely did the cartoon artists work with the toy designers? Which came first? I know that some of those 80′s shows were based on toy lines.

    So much work goes into cartoons, it’s sad that a lot of the materials get destroyed.

    The mid-80′s saw a return to full animation, away from the limited style of the Hanna Barbara era.

    background artists are the great unsung heroes of cartoon animation.

    Look at the old Popeye cartoons. I mean the really old ones, from the 1930s. Those backgrounds are gorgeous. The interiors of houses, the streetscapes, the saloons.

    I always wanted to live in a house like the ones in the old Popeye cartoons.
