Our second installment of Animation ID! We give an overview of Emery Hawkins, the Grand Wanderer of classic animation! This guy came up with not just the ultimate Woody Woodpecker, the immortal Marky Maypo, and the nauseating Greedy, but breathed life into characters at just about every studio: Lantz, Columbia, MGM, Disney, and WB, where he rounded out the '40s on the cartooniest cartoons directed by Art Davis. Join in as Bob and Thad discuss what made Mr. Hawkins so special.
