Animator Ron Campbell Comes To Charlotte, Talks Beatles And Career

Animator Ron Campbell has some impressive names tied to his career: The Jetsons, Scooby Doo, The Rug Rats.

And a certain British group with an affinity for a brightly colored submersible: The Beatles.

Campbell helped animate various Beatles themed projects, like the 1968 film Yellow Submarine. He's retired now, though he still tours the country. Campbell is in Charlotte this weekend at the Charlotte Fine Art Gallery talking about his work and drawing in front of an audience. He spoke with WFAE's Sarah Delia.
