Encyclopedia > Andy Panda

Andy Panda was a series of animated cartoon short subjects produced by Walter Lantz and released by Universal Pictures from 1939 to 1949. The titular character was an anthropomorphic cartoon character, a cute panda. In the early version of the cartoon series, Andy is a cub, whose father, Papa Panda, is frequently trying to prove himself as a good role model. Later, Andy became a stand-a-lone star in the vein of Mickey Mouse, and even acquired a Pluto-like dog as a pet. Animation refers to the process in which each frame of a film or movie is produced individually, whether generated as a computer graphic, or by photographing a drawn image, or by repeatedly making small changes to a model (see claymation and stop motion), and then photographing the result. ...
