Jerry Beck gave me a DVD full of Terrytoons shorts when we met in LA last week. Among those included was this short.
"Clint Clobber's Cat" (1957) was the first of the seven Clint Clobber shorts released by 20th Century Fox in CinemaScope.
The designs are very stylized. Many people often compare the Deitch-era Terrytoons to UPA shorts. I think what makes these different from them, though, is that the animation is otherwise done in traditional fashion from the early fifties (even if the lower budget forced them to economize). Jim Tyer does some of the animation in this short and it's just as broad and cartoony as in Terry cartoons animated just a year before.
With the exception of Jim Tyer himself, most veteran Terrytoons animators had a difficult time adjusting to the new designs; the film's director, Connie Rasinski, was one of the more vocal opponents of the new style and resented having to direct them. You can see it in the animation itself starting at 2:50. Clint is drawn like an old-school Terry character in that shot and is animated as such.
Doug Moye does Clint's voice (Allen Swift takes over in subsequent cartoons). Lionel Wilson voices the old lady and the radio announcer.
As usual, this is a TV pan-and-scan print.
