    FANTASTIC, Tina!!!!!!!!!
    So glad to see so many people responded— people I haven’t seen or heard about in years, but we all worked together with Corny back in the mid-80s at Marvel!!!…
    Just excellent……………. :-)

  3. Nancy Bieman (October 30th, 2008, 12.25 am)

    Congratulations, Tina. I’m happy to have helped.

  4. Tony Bancroft (October 30th, 2008, 12.31 am)

    That is super Tina! Great job. I know Corny will really appreciate it.

  5. Carolyn Bates (October 30th, 2008, 12.32 am)

    Tina, You rock!

  6. Dorse Lanpher (October 30th, 2008, 12.33 am)

    Gee Tina…It does my heart good to see so many helpful, generous, people among our kind artists….Good luck to Corny…

  7. Thomas Baker (October 30th, 2008, 6.07 am)

    Corny was one of the first Animators I worked with in my early days of Camera. It was nice to see his face but sad to see his peril. Do you know his family owned almost all the land in Hollywood where Cole street is now? Yep named after his family.

  8. Dean Yeagle (October 30th, 2008, 6.10 am)

    I met Corny only once, back in the 80′s in NYC, but I’ve always admired his work. Can’t imagine the pain he’s in now. Thanks for helping him out!

  9. Carolyn Bates (October 30th, 2008, 6.12 am)

    I used to work with Corny at Duck Soup in the 70′s and I’ve kept up with him over the years. I love Corny! If you think Corny needs any clothing I’ve got plenty of good stuff from my husband (who’s about the same height) that we could donate. Let us know if there’s anything else he needs.

  10. Suzanne Wilson (November 23rd, 2008, 11.43 pm)

    That photo of you and Corny Cole is wonderful. What a heartening event! So nice to see some good news and just in time for Thanksgiving!

  11. Christophe Vacher (November 23rd, 2008, 11.47 pm)

    Good stuff, Tina. The kind of stuff that stays in the heart for a lifetime.

  12. Karen Krajenbrink (December 22nd, 2008, 6.18 am)

    I only wish I could have done more. Thank you Tina!

  13. Philippe Tilikete (August 20th, 2009, 2.04 am)

    I am happy to have helped one of the greats of the animation world, i don’t know you Corny but i wish you all the best!
    Great job Tina!
