I'm a sucker for cartoon backgrounds. Johnny Johnson's work at MGM are some of the best along with Bill Wray's and Scott Wills' work on Ren and Stimpy and Samuai Jack. I'll address them in a different post. These screen shots are of backgrounds by my favorite Hanna Barbera painters Robert Gentle and Art Lozzi. I love early Hanna Barbera, the characters were great but the stories weren't that funny and the animation... well, it's limited that's for sure. But those backgrounds were always a favorite aspect of those shorts.
