John Halas was born in Hungary and in 1932 he was one of the founders of the first animation studio there, Coloriton. He studied with George Pal for a time, then emigrated to England, where he met his wife and partner, Joy Batchelor. They established Halas & Batchelor studios in 1940, taking on commercial work and propaganda films for the Ministry of Information. After WWII, the studio grew with leaps and bounds, tackling the production of the animated theatrical feature Animal Farm. During the 1950s, they moved into television animation, producing Dodo The Kid From Outer Space and Foo Foo.

We are presenting three Halas & Bachelor shorts from their television era. They display remarkable ingenuity despite the limitations of television budgets and schedules. The first film, “Top Dog” employs paper cut out characters in a very appealing way. “Foo Foo The Stowaway” uses simple means to put across its story without compromising movement, design or color. The third film, “The Cultured Ape” is modeled after the UPA style, and succeeds to make its point in a more entertaining way than many of the UPA films it is based upon. In the United States, television animation sacrificed the animation and made up for it with design, but Halas & Batchelor succeed on both counts. These videos will only be available to Animation Resources members for two months, July and August of 2016, after which they will be removed from the download area of the website.
