Thomas & Johnston describe the history & development of Disney-style humor and then break down & analyze hundreds of animated sequences to lay out the various kinds of sight gags: the spot gag, the running gag, the gag that builds, the action gag, the tableau gag, the inanimate character gag, the funny drawing, and specialized gags. Profusely illustrated with animation drawing sequences and key extremes.

Cartoon Network, and Disney. He retired in 2009 to paint and teach.
