FROM "NBS" (mid-2000):


   First of all, your Website is  screech! - but what else could one expect   from the descendants of such a motley crew! Tho I'd suspect that any   red-blooded 'Merican cowboy would object to the comparison. (Don't know about the Aussies; suspect your 'proper' Austrian progenitors are mightily embarrassed. But that's their problem.) My family gets distinctly embarrassed by me!

FROM "WOGGLY" (11/2000):

I literally bumbled my way on to your fascinating page. I have long been

familiar with the work of Dick Huemer -- and have actually already read

a few of the articles included on the site -- and I find this collection

    For many years, I completely associated the name of Dick Huemer with

Disney. When I was growing up, I loved a little yellow-colored 45 rpm

record of the Mouse story  "The Whatzis and The Whozis." Dick Huemer is

credited on the record as the author. This stuck deeply in the misshapen

brain of a child of the 'fifties, and for years I naturally assumed that

Mr. Huemer was Walt Disney's right hand guy; the person who wrote and

drew all the Disney cartoons and comic books, as Uncle Walt was clearly

too busy to do them himself anymore. This delusion, er, illusion ran 

so deeply in me that when the Disneyland tv program would feature other

animators or artists from the studio, I automatically assumed that Mr.

Huemer was a reticent, modest fellow who wanted the people who worked

under him to get some of the limelight.

   Obviously, this wasn't the case. But he seems to have been a fine man.

And, judging from the evidence of this website, he raised a great
