The Jungle of Nairobi

Say something nice about a Gene Deitch Tom and Jerry cartoon? Well, how about this background which opens the 1962 cartoon “Sorry Safari”? Great design and colour. This is from frame-grabs pasted together from a DVD pan so the colours don’t quite match.



It’s on the screen for 41 seconds before an airplane lands. Unfortunately, the background artist remains anonymous.

  1. Two of the BG artists that Gene Deitch often used was Bohumil Siska and Miluse Hluchanicov√°. Odds are, it's one of them.
