Romano Scarpa Animation from 1982

Posted on March 1st 2009 in Italy, Romano Scarpa

This 5-minute animation from 1982 was made by Italian Disney comics artist Romano Scarpa as an introduction to a Disney TV special in Italy. The video shows a parade of Disney comic characters, including Detective Casey (by Floyd Gottfredson), Donald Duck’s superhero alter ego Paperinik (known in the US as Duck Avenger) and Brigitta McBridge (created by Romano Scarpa) following Scrooge McDuck. It’s a unique piece of animation with these characters that can normally only be found in the comic books, and some of them only in Italian comics. (via Cartoon Brew)

Romano Scarpa was a very talented artist who wrote and penciled many Italian comic masterpieces. Here’s another video from the 1980s of Scarpa on an Italian TV show, showing off a couple of nice sketches:
