Father's Day with Bob & Ray


video

Another animation done in under half a day. This one's dedicated to my father James E. Finn Jr. (1924-1967). He was a big fan of Bob & Ray, and by some miraculous coincidence, so am I...

Funny cartoon, BUT....where's Mary McGoon?? No cartoon show is complete without her. Please put her in your next episode, or I'm not tuning in again. A Friend.

Great designs Will!
It would be fun to get some finance and produce some stuff like this for TV.

In the late 1970's another pair of radio comics named Lohman and Barkley pitched an animated show starring their voices to Filmation. Nothing came of it and this was at a point when Lohman and Barkley were number one in the Los Angeles radio market. It was a glimmer of comedic hope in a sea of limited animated novocaine.

Thanks friends!

This little clip has hardly set the innernet on fire but i loved doing it and it's something i have wanted to do for a while.

Whit--thanks for reminding me of Lohman & Barkley! They were a riot. They used to do hilarious send-ups of the TV soap DALLAS and would constantly bedevil the woman who did the traffic reports (the memorably named Hetty Lyn Hurtes)...

Brainfart-- Lohman and Barkley were AM guys, the guys I was thinking of were FM. I think they were the "Mark & Brian" of the early 80's but dammed if i can remember their names...

Totally love these guys and we listened to them back in the fifties while working on Disney's "Sleeping Beauty." It made all those long nights at work seem shorter.

Love these short clips, Will. And Bob & Ray will always be great.

As always, the joy of experiencing the content is multiplied tenfold by the joy you have in its creation.
