Our little stuffed pal Bully visited our booth at New York Comic-Con and took lots of pictures.

Learn all about Gene Deitch 's Terrytoons days, including his reflections on a young Ralph Bakshi ("a minor cel painter, and not a very good one"), over on his site dedicated to "How to Succeed in Animation."

Above is an obscure 1957 CBS promotional photograph of Gene drawing Tom Terrific (or Terr'ble Thompson if you use your imagination) with his young sons Kim and Simon. Wotta family!

Courtesy David Collier. This one requires a bit of explanation, it refers to a somewhat notorious comix house, referred to as "the Green House" (a.k.a. "Rathutch" and "Crabbpot") occupied at one point or another by folks including myself, Jeremy Eaton, J.R. Williams, Pat Moriarity, Al Columbia, and others. At one point, rumor had it that the house was going to be razed, and I told this to Dave Collier just as I was asking him to draw in my book. Dave had stayed at the house several times (it was a major crashpad) and was fond of it. The house never was razed and sits just a few blocks from where I live now.
