‘Tooner’ trio tipped to tell ’bout time at Hanna-Barbera

Film · Visual arts

A trio of ‘tooners’: Tony Benedict, Willie Ito and Jerry Eisenberg, talented, original animators from the Hanna-Barbera Studio in the sixties, will share memories of working at the legendary animation house — the home of Huckleberry Hound, Yogi Bear, the Jetsons, and the Flintstones.

The ‘kid fun for grown-ups’ program will address how Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera brought animated cartoons to network television, as told by the animators.

‘Glory Days’ is the latest offering of the always-fun “Evening at the Barn” series run by Hollywood Heritage at the Lasky-DeMille Barn on Highland Avenue.

The evening will also include a short film on Daws Butler, the voice of Huck and Yogi. Display of items on the Hanna-Barbera cartoon atudio will also be on view.
