Joe and Bill Explain It All
Here is a CBC news clip from 1961 where Joe Barbera and Bill Hanna explain the production process for making TV cartoons. It's a shame that the clip is in such poor shape.
One of the interesting things is the casual sexism. "Girls" do ink and paint, but a "man" paints the backgrounds. Welcome to the era of Mad Men and Wilder's The Apartment.
If you can identify any of the artists who appear on screen, please comment.
(Thanks to Chris Walsh for pointing me to this.)
