This week we have a special interview with animator Robb Pratt (“Superman Classic,” “Flash Gordon Classic”). We talked about how and why he started the Classic series, his thoughts on Superman as a character, Flash Gordon and how he relates to Star Wars, various trials and tribulations navigating the business world of animation entertainment, his recent work on “Wabbit” (the Bugs Bunny animated shorts show) and his absolute love of story and art! Robb was very generous with his time and couldn’t have been more fun to talk to. In particular, I loved his insights into the character relation between Bugs Bunny and Superman, the analysis of the Rancor pit scene from “Return of the Jedi” and how he got that creepy voice effect in “Bizarro Classic.” Check out his YOUTUBE CHANNEL, WEBSITE and TWITTER for all things Robb Pratt!
