A new addition to my Hanna-Barbera poster gallery.
Director and artist was a particularly favorite colleague of mine when I first got into the cartoon business in the early 90s (and for many years afterwards). He was a great influence on our first big idea cartoon shorts incubator, What A Cartoon! and continued to make some of my choice shorts at Oh Yeah! Cartoons and Random! Cartoons.
Yuckie Duck was Pat’s first original character he produced for us at Hanna-Barbera, and for some reason we only had one of Yuckie’s posters on our What A Cartoon! Poster Gallery. Finally, years late, I’ve rectified that oversight.
Yuckie Duck created by Pat Ventura
