Cartoonist, animator, producer, and self-described eccentric, Jay Ward was the mind behind Jay Ward Productions - a company that made iconic characters through the relatively new medium of television. As well as creating the look for such advertising characters as Captain Crunch, Ward’s stylistic approach also brought to life the comedic and subversive world of Rocky and Bullwinkle, including nemeses Boris Badanov and Natasha Fatale, and ancillary characters like time-traveling Peabody and Sherman, and Canadian mountie Dudley Do-Right.
Hey Tumblrs’! In the spirit of tomorrow’s gluttony and overeating, I wanted to share these designs I did for the Scooby-Doo dvd movie “Spooky Games”! These were part of a stylized main title and I was going for a UPA or Jay Ward/Ed Benedict feel for the characters.
