WB did indeed close their animation department and DePatie-Freleng is still formed.I assume the lack of a mention of Warner Brothers Cartoons in the last animation industry update means that they went out business in 1964 like otl. I was hoping the success of the Shirley Temple Alice and Wonderland movie would keep them going for a few more years. If Warner brother cartoons is out business did De-pait Ferling still form.
They were doing tradional animation by 66 otl possably earier. I wonder if studios other then disney having succes with feature length animated films will result in rankin bass releasing some of thier made for tv movies like thier verison of the wind in the willows (nomited but lost best film at the 1985 ancey animated film festival ) and award winnng made hobbit adaption into theahtersThey exist, but they've been doing stop motion stuff at the moment.
