Take a stroll down memory lane and meet early animation legend and author Gerard Baldwin at Cactus Music on Saturday, October 3, 2015.

The influence of Gerard Baldwin’s more than 55 years as an animator and director can be seen on television every day.

The Houston-transplant worked with Hanna-Barbera, from 1979 through 1985, producing/directing for The Smurfs and directing for Rocky & Bullwinkle. Having also animated for Yogi Bear, The Grinch, Aladdin, and The Flintstones, Baldwin’s works have left a mark on the childhood of more than a few generations.

In 2015, Baldwin can still be found with a pencil in his hand. Only this time he’s taken to writing.

Join Baldwin and Cactus Music as they celebrate the release of his highly anticipated ode to animation and memoir, From Mister Magoo to Papa Smurf on Saturday, afternoon, October 3, 2015.
