BOING!#4, There aren't enough words to describe the genius behind such works as Tom Terrific, Terr'ble Thompson, Munro, Samson Scrap and Delilah and Silly Sidney! Surprisingly enough at the age of 85, Gene has not slowed down much and continues to produce animation based on book adaptations while still willing to discuss his past and career history with people as fortunate as myself. His career experiences, as he explains, can also serve as great lessons about luck, perseverance, and persistence. Of course,..it didn't hurt Gene to have all of that talent on his side along the way!! Gene Deitch is indeed one of kind, and just listening to his background, clues you in to this fact right out of the gate!
