Happy New Year..The 60th anniversary of full force TV animated shows
After the success of late 40s shows like Jay Ward/Art Anderson/JerryFairbanks "Crusader Rabbit", and isolated successes like "Gumby",1957 saw the appearances of a number of shows..shows like "Bozo the Clown", by Larry Harmon studio based on Alan W.Livingston's characvter form the 40s, appeared, as did Hanna-Barbera's first, "Ruff and Reddy', in 1957 (by the way, sorry, but the later 80s-90s shows to me are a whole different Hanna-Barbera, esp.the Aussie produced and Cartoon Network shows, but that's a minority near the end of the line), and soon later, HUckleberry Hound, the Harmon stuido's first harevest of Bozo's, and even the revival of Crusder Rabbit. Just without Lucille Bliss, also known as Anastasia "Stacey" Stepsister of Cinderella and Smurfette of you-know-what-franchise.)TVS/Creston Productions (Crusader), Sam Singer and others soon became successful. After all, theatrical were being shown (and Paramount and Warner Brothers with "A.A.P.", why not?)
