Paul Fennell Studios (ca. 1950s)

We continue our series of commercial reels from the Paul Fennell Studios with some spots that look forward to what Hanna-Barbera would be doing a few years later. The principle designer at Fennell was Ed Benedict, who went on to design Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound and many other classic characters for Hanna-Barbera.

Here Paul Fennell’s crew is joined by Hanna-Barbera’s first on-staff animator, Carlo Vinci. Unhappy with the direction the Terry-Toons studio had taken, Vinci had recently relocated his entire family from New York to the West coast to join his old friend Joe Barbera at MGM. But soon after he arrived, the MGM cartoon studio closed its doors, and Vinci was out of work. He was quickly hired by Disney to animate for the wrap around segments in the Disneyland TV series, but Vinci wasn’t happy with the “old boy” attitudes and the slow pace of the work at Disney. He took freelance work for Fennell on commercials and was introduced to Ed Benedict whose design sense lent itself perfectly to Vinci’s animation style. When Hanna-Barbera was formed in 1957, Vinci and Benedict were among the handful of artists who were the first to be hired, and they helped to establish the studio’s house style.

Ed Benedict likely designed and laid out all of these commercials, and Vinci’s animation can be seen sprinkled throughout this reel. The Ipana Toothpaste and the Swiss Creme Sandwich cookie spots appear to be entirely animated by Vinci. This reel of animated commercials produced by the Paul Fennell Studios includes spots that haven’t been seen in over half a century. We thank the family of Paul Fennell for sharing them with us.

Paul Fennell Studios (ca. 1956)

It isn’t often that you have the opportunity to follow the development of a television advertising campaign from beginning to end, but this is one of those rare occasions. Ed Benedict designed a series of spots for Schmidt’s Beer with director Paul Fennell in the mid-1950s. This reel is a complete collection of spots that chart a fascinating evolution. The pitch becomes focused, and Benedict’s style evolves from round cute animals, to simple stick figures, all the way to hyper stylized characters similar to his designs for Tex Avery’s “Field and Scream”. Benedict’s layouts in these spots are brilliant, and even though Fennell’s animation is by necessity simple due to the limitations of television budgets, it is still rhythmic, snappy and very fun.

This reel of animated commercials produced by the Paul Fennell Studios includes spots that haven’t been seen in over 50 years. We thank the family of Paul Fennell for sharing them with us.

First Motion Picture Unit (ca. 1945)

The Army-Navy Screen Magazine was a series of short subjects shown to military personel during World War II. The films preceded the screening of a Hollywood feature and served several purposes… First of all, it shared news of home with GIs on the front lines, secondly it provided information about the progress of the war effort, and lastly it trained servicemen in an entertaining manner.

Under the supervision of director Frank Capra, the series included animated cartoons featuring Private Snafu produced by Warner Bros, as well as training films with animation by UPA, MGM, Disney and Harman Ising. This particular installment of the Army-Navy Screen Magazine features brilliant design by John Hubley, and probably was made shortly before he left the service to join UPA.
