A reader sent this in to share. It's a website that features the many films that dave Tendlar worked on. Mostly Popeye and Mighty Mouse cartoons.


David Benjamin Tendlar (August 8, 1909 - September 9, 1993) was an American animator.

He is best known for his work with Fleischer Studio and its successor, Famous Studios.

Tendlar was born in Dayton, Ohio. He joined Fleischer Studio in 1931, where he worked on Betty Boop, Popeye the Sailor, and many other shorts, as well as Fleischer's two feature-length animated films. Tendlar stayed on at Famous Studios after Paramount Pictures foreclosed on Fleischer and reorganized the company into Famous Studios. Tendlar became a director in Famous Studios in 1953 (he also directed a Noveltoon "A Self-Made Mongrel" in 1945). He later did work for Terrytoons, Hal Seeger Productions, Filmation and Hanna-Barbera.

In addition to his animation work, Tendlar was a comic book artist, providing illustrations for Jingle Jangle Comics and Harvey Comics as well as producing promotional comic books.

Tendlar died in Los Angeles, California at the age of 84.
