It's our first installment of Animation ID: an "insider baseball" look at specific classic animators and their scenes! We give an overview of Mike Lah, the funniest animator the MGM cartoon studio ever had. He breathed comic life into Barney Bear, Tom and Jerry, Droopy, and Spike and made Tex Avery even funnier. Bob and Thad breakdown why Lah's "less is more" approach resulted in some of the best cartoon animation ever, and relay some of Lah's own insight on the MGM cartoon-making methodology.
