Bob and Belinda with Ron

In the Al Brodax book , "Up Periscope Yellow",  Mr. Brodax gives Ron much credit for helping to save the movie "Yellow Submarine" and tying it all together at the last minute.

Ron did a great deal of footage in "Yellow Submarine". He and his colleague Duane Crowther animated the "Nowhere Man Song", most of the chief animation of the "Blue Meanie" and "Max" (who steal the film) and what experts call the most difficult animation in the film...."The Sea of Time".




Debbie and Ron show off her art piece!

Born in 1939 in Seymour, Victoria, Australia, Campbell has been a force in animation for the past four decades. Still working today, he is currently directing episodes of "Ed, Edd, and Eddy" for Cartoon Network.

He began his animation career in the early 1960's on "Beetle Bailey", "Krazy Kat", and "Cool McCool" for King Features, as well as The Beatles. He then went on to write and produce cartoons for "Sesame Street" on Children's Television Workshop and produce the animation for "The Big Blue Marble", winning a Peabody and Emmy.  
Janna and Ron (another happy collector)
Campbell, just out of Art School, worked on the Saturday Morning Beatles Cartoon Series in Australia and storyboarded, directed, and animated on that ground breaking series. It was number one in the ratings for two straight years. The show premiered on September 25, 1965 and ran through April 20, 1969.

Young and old a like enjoyed the art and event.

The 1990s took Ron Campbell to Disney TV Animation where he was responsible for animation direction on "Bonkers", "Goof Troop", and "Darkwing Duck". He also did storyboarding for Klasky-Csupo's Nickelodeon shows, "Rugrats", "Rocket Power", and "Duckman". During that time, he was nominated for an Emmy for his storyboard for "Ahh! Real Monsters".
