So this is who Robert “Tiger” West is.
For many moons I had wondered. Ever since I was a kid I would see the credit on Hanna-Barbera cartoons Xerography: Robert “Tiger” West. I don’t know if the weird word ‘xerography’ caught my eye or if it was the “Tiger” in quotes, but either way I have always remembered the name and wondered what xerography was.
I still don’t know, but it apparently has something to do with Xerox machines or copying or something. Which isn’t surprising given that the H-B cartoons of the 70s seemed to all be carbon copies of each other: a wacky non-human hero with three teenage sidekicks (see Funky Phantom, Speed Buggy, Captain Caveman, Jabberjaw, Galloping Ghost, etc.). Having a Xerox machine probably speeded up production of those shows quite a bit.
