Remembering The First Lady of Animation

Remembering the great JUNE FORAY who passed just a few weeks ago. Today would have been her 100th birthday. This legendary voice artist advanced and forever changed the field of animation with her tireless efforts behind the microphone, as well as behind the scenes. A founding member of ASIFA, the Animation Guild and the Animation Board for AMPAS, we have June to thank for the establishment of the Oscar's 'Best Animated Feature Film' category! I am deeply honored and forever grateful to have the First Lady of animation featured in the foreword of "Ink & Paint – The Women of Walt Disney's Animation" I hope it serves as a lasting tribute to this extraordinary trailblazer! Chuck Jones said it

Happy Birthday, Marge Champion!

Happy Birthday to Marge Belcher-Champion. As a young girl, Marge was the instructor assistant at her father's dance studio in Hollywood when a call came in for some movement work at Walt Disney's Studio. That call forever changed Marge's life and launched her extraordinary career of groundbreaking work on stage, screen and television as dancing partner with Gower Champion. Today, Marge is perhaps most beloved for the work she accomplished as a result of that first phone call—as the reference model for Snow White. As we celebrate the 80th anniversary of Walt Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, isn't it marvelous that we can celebrate the birthday—and landmark work—of dear Marge Champion
