American film animator John Hubley began his career working on classics like Bambi and Fantasia at Disney. In the late '40s, Hubley created the character of Mr. Magoo; in the '50s, he founded Storyboard Studios, where he worked on Sesame Street and directed classic shorts like Moonbird. We present a program of newly restored 35mm prints of some of the most beloved of John Hubley's works, on the 100th anniversary of his birth.
