Ed Levitt 1916-2013

Ed Levitt, a key contributor to both the Golden Age and Cartoon Modern eras of animation, has passed away at the age of 96. Cartoon Brew has a nice post about him here. Not only was he background artist on (in my opinon) Disney's three best films (Pinocchio, Fantasia and Bambi), but he also helped to design A Charlie Brown Christmas, which I consider one of the best-designed animations of all time for its spare backgrounds, wonderful color scheme, and soft quiet alone. Thanks for that.
