While I try to find some time to work up some longer posts, here are a couple interesting photos that I thought would be fun to share. First, a photo of the three main UPA directors in 1951, after winning the Oscar for GERALD MCBOING BOING. From left to right: Bobe Cannon, John Hubley, studio prez Steve Bosustow, Pete Burness, and (I think) UPA’s publicist Charles Daggett.
And a photo of Magoo director Pete Burness (left) and Steve Bosustow. They are holding a certificate from the Motion Picture Herald, which says that Mister Magoo was one of the top ten money-making short subject series of 1952.
