One thing I find interesting about the 1960s Paramount cartoons are the writers involved. In an attempt to find new ideas they got just about anyone from standup comedians (Eddie Lawrence) to print cartoonists to contribute stories for the struggling animation studio. So you have a lot of freelance writers walking in at the time.
Sick Transit, one of those "chase" cartoons, featured three (!) writers credited: the film's director, Howard Post, Frank Ridgeway and Bud Sagendorf. William B. Pattengill animated it.
Bud Sagendorf made his mark as an assistant to Elzie Segar on Popeye, eventually taking over the strip in the 1960s. As far as I know, this is Bud's only animation work.
Frank Ridgeway did a strip called Mr. Abernathy for King Features, which ran from 1957 until his death in 1994. Ridgeway did have some animation experience after this short; he was a writer in several Saturday Morning shows produced by Hanna-Barbera and DiC in the '70s and '80s.
