Layout artist who worked for Chuck Jones’ unit in the 1950s, responsible for some of the remarkable graphic effects that that unit produced in that period. Notable examples would have to include Hare-way to the Stars (1958), What’s Opera, Doc? (1957), and Duck Dodgers in the 24 1/2 Century (1953). Noble was closely associated with Jones, receiving co-director credit on a number of cartoons in the late 1950s and early 1960s. He continued to work with Jones at MGM in the 1960s.
Noble is also responsible for some of the background work in Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937).
