In an era of American Dad and Family Guy, the purveyors of today's animated shows are used to the irreverent and sometimes crude humor of the creations of Seth MacFarlane. Eons ago, another brand of humor rose up from the era of early television to challenge the status quo of comedy in the animated sphere. Jay Ward and Bill Scott were the main players in bringing us a plethora of characters that were adored by the baby boomers and have only recently declined in their prominence after the bulk of [...]
This is a painstakingly detailed book about Jay Ward Productions, the animation studio which created the Rocky and Bullwinkle shows. It should only be read by the most ardent fan of animation (in general) and Bullwinkle (in particular). Not for the faint hearted.
Perhaps a bit too long, but still fun.
And Now For Something You'll REALLY Like! I found Mr. Scott's book to be an easily readable, fascinating and fun look into the life and work of Mr. Jay Ward. Mr. Ward was a man about whom little has been written before this. Mr. Scott does an admirable job, in my opinion, of telling his story and renewing interest in his work. I, for one, will be buying every Rocky & Bullwinkle DVD there is to buy, chiefly on the strength of the memories resurrected for me by this book. Mr. Ward apparently w [...]
Having enjoyed the cartoons of the Jay Ward studio since childhood, I was always left with questions about the people and history behind them. Thanks to this book, I no longer have those questions. Scott has compiled information from published sources, original interviews, and his personal experiences with many of the key players. The book is not so much about the particulars of the cartoons as the history of the studio itself, and with often unexpected but welcome details as well as short biogr [...]
It took a while to warm up to this book, even though I love Rocky, Bullwinkle and all of the assorted crazy characters of Jay Ward and Bill Scott. Growing up in the sixties, I was greatly influenced by the humor and intelligence that they offered in the guise of a cartoon series. The book gave a heavy look at the behind the scenes politics involved with the studios, funding and production problems, but once the focus was on their various shows it was very enlightening. It also brought back a lot [...]
If you are at all interested in Rocky & Bullwinkle or the career of Jay Ward -- or just interested in TV animation in general -- you must read The Moose That Roared. It's an informative, lively, and thoroughly-researched volume about an important chapter in pop culture history. The guides and appendices at the back of the book are extremely helpful as well. Apparently, before this book came out, there was very little available to read about the Ward cartoons other than various magazine and n [...]
If you ever enjoyed Rocky and Bullwinkle and wanted to know about their production, this is the book to read. You feel like you really got to know the wonderful people that brought this show to life. I loved this cartoon as a kid, but now when I watch them, I realize there is a whole new level of meaning in the stories they tell. The humor has an adult level that I never saw as a kid. Give them a try and you will fall in love again.
This book is definitely for the current Jay Ward fan looking to know more about the production of his or her beloved cartoons, as opposed to someone looking for a gateway into the world of Jay Ward. The author had a tendency to get a bit bogged down in technical animation details, but overall paid beautiful tribute to the characters and their creators. If you'll excuse me, I'm going to watch my George of the Jungle DVD's now.
I got about halfway through. it was interesting, but a little TOO detailed. I had to finish another library book that was due, then couldn't finish or renew this one. I might give it another shot later.
I have been a fan of Rocket J. Squirrel and Bullwinkle J. Moose and their friends for most of my life. What a delightful book this is.
Keith Scott has produced a loving tribute to the team at Ward Productions. This book makes me want to watch every Rocky and Bullwinkle cartoon with it as a concordance.
Decent bio of Jay Ward Studios. It was definetly repetitive, but still pretty good.
