Bill Melendez, RIP


We'll miss you, Bill!

Click here to read the full story.

One of the few still-living legends, Bill Melendez gives a rare candid interview where he talks about his begining at Disney, what he considers his 'step-up' to Warner Bros. and working in the Clampett unit in the 40's, to his experiences working at UPA and finally on the Peanuts specials he produced for television.

Bill was Rod Scribner's assistant in the Clampett unit, and is the only guy, other than Robert McKimson, who could be considered as being on Scribner's level.

He will be missed by the industry and by friends.

Thanks to whoever posted this interview initially.
