Groovy Ghoulies

In the early 1970's, Filmation produced "Sabrina And The Groovy Goolies" an animated series based on the Sabrina character in the Archies comics. The Goolies were a bunch of hip monsters who took off from the most popular monsters of the 1930's films, Frankenstien, The Wolf Man, The Mummy and Dracula. I was an animator on the series and after production was finished I was able to grab this B.G out of the dumpster. It's a shame so much good art work was thrown away but a half hour series would produce volumes of animation drawings and cels, layouts and backgrounds; so what else could they do?
