Continuing the series of posts examining the British animators listed in Cartoons: One Hundred Years of Cinema Animation by Giannalberto Bendazzi. Part one can be found here.
Here's what Bendazzi has to say about British animation during the period:
Propaganda and war-related educational films helped keep British animation alive during the war while advertising, which had traditionally supported production, amost (sic) disappeared.The animators and productions that he lists are:
Halas & Batchelor
Bubble & Squeak
His Story of Time (1951)
John Daborn/the Grasshopper Group
Bride and Groom
The Battle of Wangapore
A Short Vision
Bendazzi depicts the period as being dominated by two new studios, Halas & Batchelor and Larkins. It's worth mentioning that the book focuses more on animated films than on television series, hence why the section overlooks a number of notable figures who were active at the time, such as John Ryan, Oliver Postgate, Peter Firmin, Gordon Murray and Ivor Wood. A biography of John Halas concludes the survey.
