As I watch the New Superman remasters, I think of my late Columbia College Chicago animation teacher, Gordon Sheehan. Gordon worked on these at the Fleischer studios. He often brought film prints to class and we watched Superman. He started out on Betty Boop and Popeye and talked about the life drawing classes at the studio, to prepare the animators for Superman. I went to an event for Gordon at the Animation Plus! Gallery, shortly after I had him as a teacher (I have photos I took of him in front of Betty Boop cels). He was also the first person to tell me about the old Hillside Hollywood show, where I picked up many Rankin/Bass things! #Superman #Gordonsheehan #teacher #animator #legend
