You may not be familiar with the name, but if you’ve seen MTV’s Beavis and Butthead, Saturday Night Live’s “Saturday TV Funhouse,” [adult swim’s] Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law or Stephen Colbert’s Tek Jansen/Alpha Squad Seven, you’ve seen the work of J.J. Sedelmaier.

Since opening up his White Plains animation studio in 1990, J.J. and his studio have created hundreds of TV productions in an amazing variety of animation styles, from retro-1950’s TV commercials to transforming Garry Trudeau, Don Martin or Al Hirschfeld’s art into animated film form.

After screening samples of his studio’s work, J.J. and animation journalist and author Joe Strike will discuss his influences, career anecdotes and some of his best known and high-profile cartoons. In addition, J.J. talks about the forgotten history of the animation industry’s early 20th century New York origins.
