   PEANUTS Animation Director Bill Melendez
With his trademark handle bar mustache, Melendez was a phenomenal
talent whose unique style and distinct sense of humor inspired a
generation. Melendez began his career at Walt Disney Studios. Years
later, Melendez expanded his resume when he moved to Warner Bros. to
animate other famous cartoons such as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and
Porky Pig. In the 1950s Bill directed United Productions of America
(UPA), Playhouse Pictures and John Sutherland Productions.  

In 1959 Melendez began a cillaboratio with PEANUTS creator Charles M.
Schulz.  
A partnership and friendship followed and as a result, Melendez gave the
PEANUTS kids life in more than 63 half-hour specials, five one-hour
specials, four feature films and more than 372 commercials.  Favorites
include “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving,”
“She’s a Good Skate, Charlie Brown,” and “You’re a Good Sport, Charlie
Brown.” In addition to creating the cartoons, Melendez also provided the
voices for Snoopy and Woodstock.

Bill Melendez was the only animator allowed by Charles Schulz to work
with the PEANUTS characters. He won numerous awards including eight
Emmy® Award wins, an Oscar® Award nomination, two Clio advertising
awards and more than 150 other Advertising Awards.
