In this charming set of photos, legendary animators from the 1940s to the 1960s can be seen making hilarious faces at themselves as they sketch beloved animal characters like Bugs Bunny, Donald Duck, and of course, Tom & Jerry. Working in studios like Walt Disney Productions, Warner Bros, and Hanna-Barbera Productions, these artists brought to life many of the creations that defined the golden age of American animation.
Tom Brady had to show up in court today for his possible involvement in under-inflated footballs during last year's football season.

The late comedy great, Richard Pryor, was groundbreaking in his ability to push the envelop and redefine the industry for many comedians after him. He was known for his ability to bring to light social challenges in a humorous but thought-provoking way.
The Richard Pryor Special? aired in 1977 and was a ratings and critical success. In one particular sketch, Maya Angelou gave a chilling performance along side Pryor that displays her keen ability to convey the human spirit in a truly moving way.
