Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Kenneth Lee Muse (July 26, 1910 - July 26, 1987) was an American animator. He is best known for his work on the Tom and Jerry series at MGM. Muse worked briefly at Walt Disney Studio, where he was Preston Blair's assistant on Fantasia (he helped animate "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" scenes). He also provided animation for various Mickey Mouse cartoons such as Mr.Mouse Takes a Trip (1940), Mickey's Birthday Party (1942), and Symphony Hour (1942). Muse left Disney during the 1941 strike there and joined Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's animation department in 1941, along with fellow animators Ray Patterson, Preston Blair, Ed Love, Walter Clinton, and Grant Simmons. He was assigned to the Hanna - Barbera unit, where he remained for 17 years. He first provided animation for the eighth Tom and Jerry short, Fine Feathered Friend (1942), as well as the very last Hanna-Barbera Tom and Jerry, Tot Watchers (1958), and nearly 120 other shorts in between. Muse also animated Jerry Mouse dancing with a live-action Gene Kelly in the 1945 musical Anchors Aweigh.show more
