Speedy Boris~

Indeed both may be totally correct, buuuut just keep in mind that [color=Red]BAKSHI'S original stated reason
(back in '77) for Warner's NON-release was very clearly the racial component and Warner's freaking out over that, and that's what THEY had told him... :)

And of course Warner's MIGHT have used the racial component to Bakshi simply as an excuse to avoid releasing what they viewed as a completely unreleasable film.

(both released in 1982), but can anyone confirm this with a source?


Speedy Boris (and all)~

I know this thread is WAY old and we're not supposed to revive antique threads, buuuuut since we're at 'the end of all things":( around here then it's high time for a definitive answer...

Manuel Perez was indeed born June 17, 1914 in the little copper-mining town of Morenci, Arizona. When he was only three his family up and moved to Los Angeles. He attended high school there and lettered in three sports (football, baseball and track). Only two years after graduating he was hired by Leon Schlesinger and was started on the trek to animator. On April 17, 1938 Manny married Connie PEREZ (convenient for her:p). He of course went on working at Schlesinger/Warners till after the 1953 shutdown. As noted elsewhere in this thread he remained an athletic sort for much of his life.

As mentioned above, Manny lived in Van Nuys, Ca. and did indeed die on Jan. 18, 1981.
