Subject and titleEdit

Because of his love of TV animation, Scott decided to do a little research and create a series of drawings for each year, depicting some of the TV cartoon characters that debuted those particular years. The characters are Paddy the Pelican (The Adventures of Paddy the Pelican - 1950), Winky Dink (Winky Dink and You - 1953) and Gumby (Howdy Doody - 1955 and The Gumby Show - 1956). In doing his research, he found that the first Gumby cartoon actually aired as an animated segment on Howdy Doody in 1955. Because of it's popularity, Gumby got is own series soon after. So both are listed here.


Scott started out with a pencil sketch, then inked the final line work. He then scanned the drawing and added some digital work in Paint Shop Pro.
