September 20, 1944

September 20, 1944, originally uploaded by Filboid Sudge.

From the March 1997 issue of Local 839's The Pegboard:

1985 Golden Award winner JERRY HATHCOCK died on March 8, 1997 at the age of eighty-four. From 1934 until his retirement in 1977, he worked as an animator, director and producer at Iwerks, Disney, Harman, UPA, Hanna-Barbera, Filmfair and Quartet.

Hathcock was a charter member of Local 839 -- one of the signers of the original petition that led to the founding of Local 839 in 1952. With his passing, only four of the original twenty-one charter members remain.

A partial filmography for Jerry Hathcock can be found at IMDB, while a list of 1301 cartoons he worked on is the result of a search on The Big Cartoon Database.

I'm not sure if this drawing means that birthday greetings are in order for son Bob or not.

Bob's wife was my Aunt Eva as mentioned in the cartoon. Bob was my mom's brother and our uncle Jerry.
