Fox and Crow – "The Magic Fluke"

27 Apr


Here’s a fine John Hubley cartoon. I believe this was the second Fox and Crow cartoon made under UPA. I’m not the biggest UPA fan but I do really enjoy their earlier cartoons. Especially the Fox and Crow shorts and Gerald McBoing Boing.

    Hi KevinI love the look of this cartoon. It’d be neat to compare it to Magical Maestro.Hey, do you have the other UPA Fox and Crow-the Robin Hood one?

    Hi John,I agree the first two UPA Fox and Crow shorts look fantastic. Bobe Cannon’s animation is great in the opening scene. I’m not sure if Pat Matthews animated on this one. I have a tough time picking out his work outside of Lantz. I’d have to compare it to his scene in Robin Hoodlum. I have Robin Hoodlum too and also Punchy De Leon, though it doesn’t measure up to the first two. I guess there were different animators on that short. I don’t know. I have to say Magical Maestro is far and away so much funnier than this short. That’s a good idea to compare the two. I’ll have to encode “Maestro” and put it up.
