Alzheimer's Reading Room
Alex Anderson, the cartoonist who created the cartoon characters Rocket “Rocky” J. Squirrel (the flying squirrel) and Bullwinkle J. Moose (the hapless moose) has died. He had Alzheimer’s disease.
My two favorite cartoons, all time, are the Pink Panther and Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends.
It is not well known but Alex Anderson had to sue in the 1990s to get full credit as the artist who designed the cartoon characters Rocky and Bullwinkle.
Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends
Episode 9 includes Mr Peabody, his boy Sherman, and Leonardo da Vinci (13 minute, 12 second mark)
I have every Rocky and Bullwinkle episode on video tape (yikes). I also have the vintage Rocky and Bullwinkle stuffed animals.
Alexander Hume Anderson Jr. was born Sept. 5, 1920, in Berkeley.
Good night Alex, you are well remembered.
