ART SCOTT

William Arthur Scott  Jr. nasce il 18 ottobre 1914 ad Astoria, Oregon. Cresce nella British Columbia finché nel 1924 la sua famiglia si trasferisce a Long Beach, in California. Scott frequenta il Long Beach Junior College e poi la facoltà di arte presso la UCLA. Sposa Eva Dorothy Tennant, che nel 1929 gli dà una figlia, Patricia.

Dopo la Laurea, nel 1938, entra al Charles Mintz studio come intercalatore dell'animazione per Art Davis. Trasferito poi al Reparto Sceneggiature, viene infine licenziato nel 1939 e passa allo Studio Disney come assistente degli animatori Dick Lundy e Ed Love. Contribuisce anche a Fantasia e a Bambi, e durante gli anni di guerra realizza film per la Marina a Jacksonville, Florida. Nel 1941 è animatore a pieno titolo e contribuisce ai cortometraggi di Paperino con i registi Jack King e Jack Hannah.

Dopo la Guerra lavora come sceneggiatore ai cortometraggi di Topolino e Pluto, oltre che a sequenze del lungometraggio Melody Time.

Mentre è alla Disney, canta con un gruppo jazz group che include Ward Kimball al trombone e Frank Thomas al piano. Inoltre si esibisce in uno spettacolo di magia nelle basi militari in California, assistito da Bob "Tiger" West.

Scott lascia la Disney nel 1946 per fondare una propria compagnia, la Art Scott Productions, in collaborazione con il suo amico e collega, l'animatore Frank McSavage. Lo studio produce cortometraggi pubblicitari, oltre ai cartoni musicali in animazione limitata della serie Mell-O-Tunes. Scott è anche designer e voce per le marionette che appaiono nello show televisivo The Adventures of Cyclone Malone.

Tra il 1946 e il 1949 Scott realizza diverse storie a fumetti per l'albo di ispirazione cattolica Topix.

Torna allo Studio Disney in 1955-56, di nuovo come sceneggiatore, per collaborare a The Mickey Mouse Club.

Più tardi Scott lavora come animatore, sceneggiatore, regista, responsabile della produzione e produttore per vari altri studi che includono John Sutherland, Polaris e Clampett/Snowball. Nel 1960 è da Hanna-Barbera, dove sarà un membro stabile dello staff tra il 1963 e il 1993. Dal 1977 al 1983 scrive anche I testi per diversi libri da colorare di Hanna-Barbera. Nel frattempo collabora anche con Larry Harmon Productions (1960-62), Fred Calvert Productions (1971-72) e Ruby-Spears (1982-83) prima di un ultimo incarico come regista per la L.A. Animation nel 1998.

Scott scompare il 19 maggio 1999 a Los Angeles.

William Arthur Scott  Jr. was born October 18, 1914 in Astoria, Oregon. He grew up in British Columbia until his family moved to Long Beach, California in 1924. Scott attended Long Beach Junior College and then UCLA, signing up for art. He married Eva Dorothy Tennant and had a daughter, Patricia, born in 1929.

After graduating in 1938 he joined the Charles Mintz studio as an in-betweener under Art Davis. After being moved to the story department, he was finally laid off in 1939 and went to work for Disney as an assistant to Dick Lundy and Ed Love. He also worked on Fantasia and Bambi, and during the War was assigned to produce Navy training films in Jacksonville, Florida. By 1941 he was a full-fledged animator on Donald Duck shorts for directors Jack King and Jack Hannah.

After the War he worked as a story man on Mickey Mouse and Pluto shorts as well as on the feature film, Melody Time.

While at Disney, he also sang with a jazz group which included Ward Kimball on trombone and Frank Thomas on piano. He also had a magic act which traveled to military bases across California, and was assisted by Bob "Tiger" West.

Scott left Disney in 1946 and founded his own company, Art Scott Productions, working with his close friend, animator Frank McSavage. The company produced animated commercials as well as limited-animation cartoons based on music called Mell-O-Tunes. Scott also designed puppets and did voices for a puppet show called The Adventures of Cyclone Malone.

From 1946-49 Scott did several stories for the Catholic comic book, Topix.

He returned to Disney in 1955-56, again as a story man, working on The Mickey Mouse Club.

Scott later worked as an animator, story man, director, production manager and producer for various studios including John Sutherland, Polaris, and Clampett/Snowball. In 1960 he joined Hanna-Barbera, where he was steadily on staff from 1963 until 1993. From 1977-83 he also wrote several Hanna-Barbera coloring books. He also did stints at Larry Harmon Productions (1960-62), Fred Calvert Productions (1971-72) and Ruby-Spears (1982-83) before finally directing for L.A. Animation in 1998.

Scott passed away on May 19, 1999 in Los Angeles.
