Fred Seibert is one of my favorite people – and a significant force in contemporary animation. Anything he has to say on the subject (and on a variety of other subjects, including classic rock & roll) is worth listening to. Saturday night he’s making an appearance at the must-see Norman Rockwell Museum in Stocbridge Mass (currently displaying a Hanna Barbera exhibit I highly recommend). Seibert, the television producer who served as the last president of Hanna-Barbera from 1992 to 1996 will be giving a lively talk about H & B and his illustrious career. Even cooler – if you couldn’t make it to Stockbridge (and you really should try) the event was live streamed on Facebook – and we have the embed below.
Seibert was the guy in charge when the studio launched its final series of animated hits, including Dexter’s Laboratory, Cow and Chicken, Johnny Bravo, Courage the Cowardly Dog, and The Powerpuff Girls. Mr. Seibert’s leadership at MTV Networks, Next New Networks, and his Frederator Studios, an independent animation producer based in Burbank, CA, will be discussed.
Here is the video embed of the Evening with Fred Seibert which took place on Saturday, March 11th at 5:30 p.m.
