Gerald McBoing Boing

Whenever I lecture about UPA, I almost always mention the Life magazine story about Gerald McBoing Boing as an indicator of how popular the film was. Thus, it was no surprise to find a whole slew of images from the film in the Google/Life magazine archives. What is interesting is that they were apparently photographed by Peter Stackpole specifically for Life from specially done cel setups, as normally only a few publicity stills would have been made for each cartoon. (The peg bars are clearly evident in a number of the pictures, including the one above.)
