"The Juggler of Our Lady" - R.O. Blechman

This is one of the strangest Terrytoons that was ever made.    It was created during the brief period of 1955-58 when Paul Terry suddenly sold the studio to CBS and Gene Deitch was hired as the new art director.  He in turn hired a bunch of young blood to take the studio in new directions.  One of these outcomes was this fantastic little short that originated as a book written by a sophomore R. O. Blechman who also designed the work.  Animated by Al Kouzel and Produced by Bill Weiss, this UPA-esque short is part of a brief but brilliant point in the long and influential Terrytoons legacy.
