Vladimir Tytla Celebration- Part 2

After the dance scene in "The Sultan's Birthday", Bill Tytla's most celebrated work at Terry is the animation of the demon cat in the Mighty Mouse cartoon "The Green Line".
He also animated the feline that listens his advices.
Tytla is at his best here and the animation is the best one ever appeared in a Paul Terry cartoon.
Do let me know your thoughts!

UPDATE: Milton Knight told me that this animation is probably a collaboration by Tytla and Carlo Vinci, another of the most talented animators to work at Terry.
The work of this unsung master will be highlighted pretty soon on this blog!

What follows is pure art! The best animation ever did at Terry!

Yours Truly,

Duck Dodgers

Wow... remindes me of Tytla's "Night on Bold Mountain" scene from Fantasia.

Salutations, Adrea

this is Leviathan once more! This sequence is wonderful to look at. You're absolutely right: it's pure art!

However, the Mighty Mouse (is that him?) in this cartoon looks different. Is this one of his earlier cartoons?

Peace Out-

it is a sort of "trait d'union" between the very early Mighty Mouse and the version that everybody knows.

Lest he be forgotten, the fight scene is by Carlo Vinci.

Dear Milton Knight,
Charles Solomon wrote in his book that the fight scene is by Tytla as well as all the other animation of the demon cat.

Dear Duck,
Not the first time an animation scholar was mistaken. Anyone familiar with Vinci's work for Terry's, MGM or Hanna-Barbera will spot this sequence immediately. At this point, Vinci had been doing very fine work for the Terry studio for nearly ten years.
A lot of people like to assume that Tytla was the only animator at this studio capable of great work in the Hollywood tradition. This is a chauvinistic assumption, and also dead wrong. The scenes with the evil cat conversing with the "normal" one were probably laid out by Tytla, but were actually animated by someone who had been working at the studio for years before; and the harem girl dance originating in THE SULTAN'S BIRTHDAY was actually (despit my doubts the other day) a collaboration between Tytla and Vinci.
