Rick Farmiloe has been animating childhoods for over 30 years, and is best known for breathing hilarity into iconic Disney sidekicks Scuttle, LeFou, and Abu in the beloved Academy Award-winning films The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin.
This American animator was first bitten by the cartooning bug at age five, while watching Walt Disney's beautifully drawn, feature-length cartoon masterpiece, Pinocchio. At age twelve, after years of creating his own cartoons for family and friends, Rick was determined to be a Disney animator. In January 1982, after only one portfolio review, he was hired by Walt Disney Productions.
During his 11 years under contract with Disney, Rick animated on seven features, which also included The Black Cauldron, The Great Mouse Detective, Oliver and Company, and The Rescuers Down Under.
Beyond his body of work for Disney, Rick's feature film credits include The Swan Princess, The Prince of Egypt, The Road to El Dorado, Shrek, Rugrats Go Wild, Curious George, The Simpsons Movie, The Boxtrolls, The Iron Giant: Signature Edition, and four Tom and Jerry direct-to-DVD films.
In 2011, Rick was an animator on two Annie Award-winning productions: Adam and Dog, which also received an Oscar nomination, and Kung Fu Panda: Secrets of the Masters. In 2015, Rick animated on yet another Annie Award winner, Coca-Cola's Man and Dog.
"ANDY From TOY STORY"
John Morris was born on October 2, 1984 as John Charles Morris. He is an actor, known for Toy Story (1995), Toy Story 3 (2010) and Toy Story 2 (1999).
A native San Franciscan, Willie embarked on his career of 50 years in the animation industry while attending Couinards Art Institute. He was hired on at Disney during the production of Lady and the Tramp. By chance, his very first assignment was with the animation crew working on the iconic spaghetti kissing scene. Upon completion of the feature, Willie went to work at Warner Bros. Cartoons starting at the infamous Termite Terrance. It was so called since compared to a state of the arts studio like Disney, it was a bit to be desired.
He soon joined Chuck Jones unit and worked on such classics as "What's Opera Doc?" and "One Froggy Evening".
Willie was "loaned" out to Friz Freleng to be a layout man on his first credited cartoon, "Prince Varmit" staring Bugs and Yosemite Sam.
Bob Clampett's Snowball Productions was going into production on his classic "Time for Beany" show and since it originally aired as a puppet show, Willie was hire to redesign the characters into animation. "The Beany and Cecil" show now has a "cult" following.
Hanna-Barbera beckoned and I joined it's crew in 1962 assigned to the Jetsons series. After a 14 year stint with H-B, and having been involved with some of the studio's classic characters such as The Flintstones, Yogi Bear and Hong Kong Phooey. He also engaged in many other artistic endeavour such as comicbooks, magazine cartoons, producing and directing TV specials and independent commercial productions.
Disney studio invited me to return in the comicstrip department and I returned to my womb, so to speak.
He enjoyed the next 23 years back at the Mouse House. Disney Consumer Products was one of the fastest growing dept. and soon found to have over 800 Disney Store world wide.
He was now Director of Character Art International and traveled worldwide mentoring Disney character artist at our international locations.
He also did some consulting work for Disney TV and helped with the early "Wuzzles" and "Gummy Bears" show which kicked off the Disney Television unit as we know it today.
He retired to continue illustrating and publishing my own books as well as speaking engagements and comicon's.
Bob is an American animation artist, character designer, layout and background artist and storyboard director of animated television programs, most memorably of several Hanna-Barbera productions such as The Flintstones, Jonny Quest, Scooby-Doo, Yogi Bear, Droopy, Tom and Jerry, The Jetsons, The Smurfs, Super Friends, Richie Rich and the Harlem Globetrotters cartoons.
Hanna-Barbera used Bob's talents for 27 years, and during that time he worked on many of the most popular Hanna-Barbera television shows. He was the founding creator of their character design department, layout department head, and later became art director of publicity.
Michael McGreevey's first major role was as young cabin boy Chip Kessler in the 1959-61 TV series Riverboat. It starred Darren McGavin as the captain of a riverboat on the Mississippi River during the 1830s.
Throughout the 1960s and early 1970s, McGreevey appeared in numerous episodes of Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color and in the Disney theatrical film trilogy: The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes (1969), Now You See Him, Now You Don't (1972), and The Strongest Man in the World (1975). Set at fictional Medfield College, these three films featured Kurt Russell as college student Dexter Riley and McGreevey as his friend Richard Schulyer. McGreevey also appeared as a different character in the Disney films Snowball Express (1972) and The Shaggy D.A. (1976).
In addition to his Disney roles, McGreevey appeared as guest star in numerous television series, such as The Virginian, Bonanza, and Route 66. He also starred opposite Sally Field, Kirk Douglas, Robert Mitchum, and Richard Widmark in the 1967 western The Way West, which was based on an A. B. Guthrie, Jr. novel. He played a young pioneer named Brownie Evans, who marries Sally Field's character.
In 1978, after studying film at UCLA, Michael McGreevey collaborated with his father, John McGreevey, on the script for the 1978 made-for-TV movie Ruby and Oswald: "In reality, the movie, although it's called Ruby and Oswald, is a three-way depiction of those four days in Dallas where we cut back and forth between the documentary footage of Kennedy and the recreated story with Ruby and Oswald. Dad and I both knew a man named Alan Landsburg, who had done a lot of documentaries. We went to him with the project first and he knew Mel Stuart, who had done an Academy Award-winning documentary called Four Days in November (1964). So, Mel was attached to direct it and we went into CBS and sold it right away as a three-hour special event movie. I was very proud of that movie; it was very well done."
McGreevey subsequently wrote episodes of TV series such as The Waltons, Quincy, M.E., and Fame. He eventually became a script editor and then creative consultant for Fame. In 1984, he received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Writing in Children's Programming for co-writing the ABC Afterschool Special "The Celebrity and the Arcade Kid". In 2015, he co-wrote the feature-length documentary Earl Hamner Storyteller, which focused on the life and career of The Waltons creator Earl Hamner, Jr
