Cook began his career as an animator and director in 1978 at Hanna-Barbera Studios where he was hired to work on “challenge of the SuperFriends,” “Godzilla,” “Scooby Doo,” “The Smurfs,” “Pacman,” and the “Flintstones.” A short stop at Ruby-Spears had him working on “Thundarr the Barbarian,” “Heathcliff,” “Fang Face,” and “Plastic Man.” Freelancing at Film Roman he worked on “Garfield: Babes and Bullets” and for Bill Melendez on the “Peanuts” special “This is America Charlie Brown.”
He then moved over to Filmation Studios in 1980, which at this point had become the only animation studio doing animation in the United States, and worked on “Tarzan,” “Flash Gordon,” “Blackstar,” “Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids,” “Brown Hornet,” “He-Man and the Masters of the Universe,” “She-Ra Princess of Power,” “Ghostbusters,” “Lone Ranger,” “Zorro,” “The Kids Super Power Hour with Shazam (Captain Marvel),” “Hero High” and the futuristic “Western Bravestarr.”
He was also involved with many TV commercials such as The Jolly Green Giant, Chevrolet, and the 7-Up Spot campaign. He then became the timing director on “Road Rovers,” “Disney’s Mighty Ducks,” “PB & J Otter,” “Duckman,” “King of the Hill,” “Savage Dragon,” HBO’s “Happily Ever After Fairy Tales,” “Extreme Ghostbusters,” “Extreme Dinosaurs,” and many more.
Cook also animated on a number of motion pictures such as Walt Disney’s “Prince and the Pauper” starring Mickey Mouse, Roger Rabbit in “Tummy Trouble,” “The Jetson’s Movie,” “Rover Dangerfield,” worked with the legendary Chuck Jones on “Stay Tuned,” “Pinocchio and the Emperor of the Night,” Steven Spielberg’s “We’re Back,” and Don Bluth’s “Thumbelina.”
He will have his own table at Coeur d’Con and will be signing toys, DVDs, or any other fan items for $10, as well as selling prints and original artwork and sketches. Cook is a resident of Hayden. Check out his website at www.comiccreations.com.
