Animation Fun Facts for Saturday Aug 27, 2011

1910- The first Tarzan the Ape Man by Edgar Rice Burroughs published.

1968- Former master animator Bill Tytla's request to return to Disney was turned down. The artist who animated Grumpy the Dwarf, Dumbo and the Devil on Bald Mountain even offered to do a free "trial animation test" to show he still had it. Disney exec W.H. Anderson wrote him:" We really have only enough animation for our present staff."
Tytla died later that year.
