Moving the Budgets

A unique of moving characters was devised for the UPA cartoon “Fudget’s Budget” (1954). Sure, they walk like normal people but director Bobe Cannon also characters turning sideways, forming a line. These drawings are on twos.

The lines then form into swirls which reform into lines, which then turn and the characters are back to their original shapes. Here are a few of the drawings to give you an idea.

Frank Smith, Alan Zaslove and Gerald Ralf are the animators, and the designer is T. Hee.
