Vince Cafarelli Grabbag

- Today we have a mix of odds and ends from Vince Cafarelli’s collection of animation artwork. We start with some artwork from the commercial studio in NY in the 1950s-60s.

This is a model sheet for something done
at Film Graphics. No doubt it’s not a commercial
but probably some kind of Educational film.

This is a model sheet for the opening titles to
the “I Love Lucy” show. My guess is that
this also comes from Film Graphics.

The Buffalo Bee model sheet for the Nabisco
Wheat Honeys commercials. Mae Questel was the voice.
This was probably done for the Gifford Studio.



A model for a little angel. I assume this is for a
paper product commercial. Again, I think it’s the Gifford Studio

A turn-around model for a Mutual of Omaha commercial.
Again, since it’s with other Gifford Studio material I’d guess the same.

Here are two bear drawings from some commercial.
It looks like Dick Williams’ Cresta Bear (only this was
done years before that.)

The three round peg holes is certainly unique.
Fleischer used a similar system for a wile as did
Krantz Studio on Fritz the Cat.
I don’t know where these are from.

I’m sure this comes from the Gifford Studio.

An interesting design. I assume it’s from a spot.
Peg holes look like the Gifford Studio.

A storyboard drawing for a Pepto Bismol commercial.
UPA had this account for a long time.

The following three drawings are two animator’s drawings (#106 & 108) and one Inbetween (#107). I believe the animator is Frank Endres; the inbetweener is Vince Cafarelli. For some reason I think this is from a Little Lulu cartoon directed by Bill Tytla, but I can’t vouch for that. I’m sure one of you visitors will let me know how wrong I am, and I welcome it.

Drawing # 106 – animator’s drawing
I’m surprised at how small the paper is; not quite 8½ x 11.

Drawing # 107 – inbetweener’s drawing

Drawing # 108 – animator’s drawing
The peg holes are Signal Corps.

    Bottom three drawings are indeed from a Little Lulu-”Cad and Caddy” (1947).

    Thanks for the confirmation, top cat james. It’s nice to see that my memory holds up, every once in a while. The drawings definitely look like a Tytla character. A little bit Terrytoon, but too well drawn.

    I drop a comment when I like a post on a site or if I have something to add to the discussion.
    Usually it is caused by the passion communicated in the post I read.
    And on this post Michael Sporn Animation – Splog Vince Cafarelli Grabbag.

    I was moved enough to drop a thought :-P I do have a few questions for you if it’s okay.
    Is it only me or does it seem like a few of these comments look
    like they are written by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting
    on additional sites, I would like to keep up with you. Could you list
    all of your shared pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

    Good day! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established
    blog. Is it hard to set up your own blog? I’m not
    very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.
    I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to begin.
    Do you have any tips or suggestions? Thank you

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the
    book in it or something. I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a
    bit, but instead of that, this is fantastic blog. A fantastic read.
    I will definitely be back.

    It is easy to get access to a card like this which makes it recognized to most of
    Play – Station gamers nowadays. This gives we time to have
    fun as well as suffer but meditative as well many of critical things about your
    life. The first 5 Crash games really rocked, and some of the Crash Nintendo Gameboy
    games were good too.
