Treasures of ASIFA-Hollywood’s Animation Archive: Bill Melendez

Animation historian and Chair of the USC Animation Program, Tom Sito hosted a series of one-on-one interviews with animation’s movers and shakers back in the 1990s.

In this episode, Tom interviews Bill Melendez – a Mexican American character animator, film director, voice artist and producer, known for his cartoons for Walt Disney Productions (working on four Classical Disney films, Pinocchio, Fantasia, Dumbo, and Bambi), Warner Bros. Cartoons, UPA and the Peanuts series. Melendez provided the voices of Snoopy and Woodstock in the latter as well.
