Our inaugural guest is animator, historian, and national treasure Mark Kausler, who talks with us about his friends, cartoon pioneers Hugh Harman and Rudy Ising, two of Walt Disney's original top animators and the gents who got WB and MGM into the cartoon shorts business. Topics include: the early days in Kansas City with Walt! The genesis of Bosko! Booze crazed horses! Battling the studio bosses! And did Joe Barbera have anything to do with Hugh's adaptation of "Gray's Elegy" going missing? Our first podcast of the decade is certainly our richest so far, and we can't wait to continue celebrating Cartoon Logic into the new decade with you!
