Obituary: Alex Anderson

Animator Alex Anderson (b.1920) died on October 22. Anderson created the design for the characters of Rocky the Flying Squirrel, Bullwinkle J. Moose, Dudley Do-Right, and Crusader Rabbit while working for Jay Ward Productions. Because Anderson did not want to move from San Francisco to Los Angeles, he did not work directly on Rocky and His Friends or subsequent shows and only had a consulting credit. Anderson sued Jay Ward Productions for credit in the creation of the characters.
