Tom Sito, Bob Kurtz, John Andrews, and Fred Crippen will be reminiscing about UPA Pictures on AniMazSpot’s “I ♥ UPA” panel, Saturday, at 3:30, September 15, 2012, at the historic Alex Theatre in Glendale.
They will show their favorite scenes from Gerald McBoing Boing, Rooty Toot Toot, Unicorn in the Garden, Christopher Crumpet, and others, to illustrate UPA’s influence on modern animation. In the evening at 7pm all 15 Oscar nominees and winners, plus, five Magoo favorites, will be shown from glorious restored 35mm prints by Sony Pictures.
There will be plenty of time between the two events to catch up with your animation friends and meet new ones, from UPA legends to just-starting-out animation students from abroad. Plus, you can have your picture taken with Mister Magoo, who lead the UPA cast of characters into the annals of animation history. The first to get a photo opp with Magoo were two of the AniMazSpot Team members, Leslie Ezeh and Alexis Williams:
