Hee, Thornton (“T. Hee”)

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on March 22, 2004

    Animator probably best remembered for his work in Fantasia as director of the “Dance of the Hours” segment. Hee had worked at Warners during the 1930s, and was responsible for many of the well-done celebrity caricatures of that era, such as can be seen in The Coo-coo Nut Grove (Freleng, 1936). Hee also drew a Christmas card in 1936 of staff caricatures which was used heavily in the creation of the Russian Gremlins in Russian Rhapsody (Clampett, 1944). The card is reproduced in Schneider’s book (p. 24).
