The list of cartoons Mr. Ross worked on as an animator is huge, going back to the early 1930s; in addition to a long stint with Warner Brothers, he worked for Walter Lantz (Oswald the Lucky Rabbit), Hanna-Barbera (The Flintstones, Scooby-Doo), Filmation (Superman, Archie, Star Trek), DePatie-Freleng (Pink Panther); and Walt Disney (The Little Mermaid, Oliver & Company). His list of awards includes the prestigious Winsor McCay Award in 1988. This piece, drawn by Mr. Ross on a sheet of 12 field animation paper, had an image size of 9". Fine condition. Signed in the lower right.
