Ron Campbell ex­hi­bi­tion

The Wichita Eagle (Sunday) - - News -

What: char­ac­ters are in peo­ple’s hearts,” he said. “It’s not that my draw­ings are so mag­nif­i­cent — they’re nice paint­ings and they do cap­ture the spirit of those car­toons ... but it’s the pub­lic’s mem­ory of their happy child­hood mo­ments.”

Over the course of his ca­reer, Campbell worked with ma­jor stu­dios, in­clud­ing Hanna-Bar­bera, Dis­ney and Nick­elodeon.

Some of the shows he’s helped cre­ate or other­wise worked on: “ScoobyDoo,” “The Jet­sons,”

“The Smurfs,” “The Flint­stones,” “Ru­grats,” “Rocket Power,” “The New Ad­ven­tures of Win­nie the Pooh” and “Ed Edd n Eddy.”

Campbell said he’s only re­cently be­gun to re­al­ize the univer­sal rec­og­niz­abil­ity of his draw­ings: “Scooby-Doo is every bit as pop­u­lar as Mickey Mouse,” he said.
