Ron Campbell, who is also known for his work on popular cartoons like 'Scooby Doo','The Flinstones', and 'The Jetsons', will be at Prøve Gallery for the 'Beatles Cartoon Pop Art Show.'

His appearance in the region comes in the same year as the 50th anniversary of the release of the classic Beatles animated film.

"I would never have guessed 50 years ago that I'd be sitting here right now talking to you," Campbell said to GMN Anchor Amy Adamle during the show Friday. "It was a wonderful film. It has a strange quality about it that causes people to swoop back to 1968 when they watched the film. It really captured the spirit, the zeitgeist of the age."

He is retired as an animator, but still does paintings. He says it's fun for him to travel around to show off all that he's done throughout his career.

Those who drop by the gallery will see around 60 original paintings. Folks can meet Campbell at the gallery. He'll be there during the following times:

  • Friday, 4:00 - 9:00 p.m.
  • Saturday, 12:00 - 6:00 p.m.
  • Sunday, 12:00 - 4:00 p.m.
