Jack King (1895-1958) was an American animator best known for his work at Walt Disney Productions. Born in Alabama, King began his animation career in the silent era in 1920 working at Bray Productions animation studio. King successfully made the transformation from silent to sound cartoons and relocated to the west coast where he joined the Disney studio in 1929. In 1933, he moved to the newly formed Leon Schlesinger Productions which made Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies for Warner Bros., initially working as an animator under director Earl Duvall. A year later, Duvall was fired in the wake of an alcohol-fuelled argument with Schlesinger, and King was promoted to director, handling many of the studio's cartoons starring Buddy.show more
