George Grimaldis shares a 1961 Chevrolet commerical that was animated by artist, Eyvind Earle.  Mr.Earle was a Disney animator that famously designed the beautiful artwork in Sleeping Beauty.  He started his own production company around 1960, and this Chevrolet piece (the first spot he produced) was created in about two weeks for $16,000.   You probably can’t get more red, white, and blue- apple pie eating- patriotic than this…Happy 4th of July.
