Consider this a "teaser" post.
Moe Gollub was an artist, teacher, union activist, and President of TAG during some of the most turbulent times in its history.
During the Animation Guild industry-wide strikes of 1979 and 1982, Moe was front and center leading the job action. I met him on the picket line in front of Hanna-Barbera in 1982...
Moe was, first and foremost, a guy who cared about artists getting a fair shake with their employers. It was why he and the late Dave Hilberman were the first Disney artists to sign representation cards, several years before the 1941 strike. It was why he got active in Animation Guild politics in the 1970s and 1980s.
Moe has been gone for almost a quarter century now, but veteran Simpsons director Mark Kirkland will be remembering him as teacher, mentor and friend in a series of TAG podcasts next week.
