Jim Tyer-"Off To The Opera"

5 Apr

Here’s a cool scene from the Heckle and Jeckle short “Off To The Opera”. This piece of animation is awesome because Tyer hits you with not one but two shrink takes.

    It’s weird that I don’t think I have ever seen a shrink take before! At least I don’t think I have.It’s cool to see a technique that is new to me!

    Can anyone think of any non-Tyer shrink takes used in classic cartoons? Similar techniques come to mind, but not in the extreme Tyer did it.

    The opening walks by the doorman and the initial guy who steps out of the car are hilarious. Why isn’t anyone else able to do Tyer-like animation? He was an original who wasn’t appreciated in his day. As a matter of fact, I wonder how he kept his job.
