Irv Spence's Cartoon Diary: February 24, 1944

Heck Allen was Tex Avery's story artist at MGM. He is remembered by Joe Barbera in My Life In 'Toons with this moment of workplace harassment:
There was one great-looking url at the studio named Doris, who would sachet down the corridor, pulling in her wake the heads of a couple of dozen animators, who would peer out of their office doorways. In that most politically incorrect era. this went on for some time — a silent ritual among us — until one day Heck Allen called out, "It's a bird! It's a dame! It's Supercan!" And it was super, too.
