Good morning! This day in Disney history, Jan 15th, 1913. Animator, director, writer & Disney Legend Jack Hannah is born in Arizona. At the Walt Disney Studios he will start as an inbetweener & clean-up artist on many early Mickey, Donald & Silly Symphony cartoons. Hannah will also help Carl Barks (the man who will draw the comic book adventures of Donald Duck) create his first two comic book stories. He will later go on to direct some 94 Disney animated films. "Not bad for a guy, who, as Jack said, was hired by Disney on "a two-week tryout that lasted thirty years." ;)
Hannah retired in 1959. Then, in 1975, he was asked by the Studio to develop & direct the School of Character Animation at the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts), which Walt Disney helped found. He served at CalArts for eight years. Jack Hannah died June 11, 1994, in Burbank, California.
