Studio Desk

Filmation co-founder and director Hal Sutherland (1929–2014) was a treasured friend. It's an honor and inspiration to work on this desk he gave me. Built by the studio carpenter for Hal in 1965, it was with him during The Batman/Superman Hour, The Archie Show, Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids, Star Trek: The Animated Series, and many more Saturday morning cartoons.

When Hal talked about his studio days I tried to always let him choose the things he wanted to remember and discuss. But after he offered the desk—and the shock wore off, I had to ask if Gene Roddenberry ever leaned against the worktable while they made Star Trek: The Animated Series. Hal thought, smiled and said during the show Gene's office was adjacent to his and they often sat together at the desk.
