Bill Melendez RIP

Three things I did not know about legendary animator Bill Melendez.

He was born in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico.

He was the only animator allowed by Charles Schultz to work with his characters.

One of his sons is a retired Rear Admiral.

Melendez died yesterday. The world is a poorer place for his passing but his work will live on for generations.
