Scenic Artist/ Background Artist/Animator

Bio Summary

Anton Loeb spent most of his career on the east coast of America at Fleitcher Studios illustrating for the Casper cartoons and Famous Studios doing illustrations for Popeye the Sailorman. Before his early career, he illustrated only a few children's books in the late 1940s, including a collection of Aesop's fables in a book called Storytime Favorites, and The Little Train that Won a Medal. He isn't known to have illustrated books after 1950. He worked primarily as Paramount's lead theatrical animator throughout the 1950s, and then moved on to TV animation in the 1960s, doing primarily background art.

Early Life/Family


Career Outline

Chief animator for Paramount Pictures in New York, and he was one of the greats animating Popeye Cartoonists in Fleischer Studios. Also, as a scenic artist for Famous Studios, he worked on many of the Casper cartoons.

Comments On Style

Anton's style is very similar to many of the children's book illustrators of the 1950's. The characteristic of his style that stands out from the rest is his dynamic perspective, use of color pencil in his final rendered art, and his unique depiction of animals with human-like facial features. He is very adamant in his stories about “The Wizard of Oz.”
