Harold "Hal" Seeger was an animated cartoon producer and director who owned his own studio the Hal Seeger Studio. Born in Brooklyn, New York, Seeger began working as an animator for Fleischer Studios in the early 1940s. His credits included "A Kick in Time" for the Color Classics series and a sequence for the feature film "Mr. Bug Goes to Town". During the later part of the 1940s, he worked as a screenwriter for a series of movies featuring well known Black performers, including the 1947 Cab Calloway musical Hi-De-Ho and two films featuring Dusty Fletcher and Moms Mabley, "Killer Diller" and "Boarding House Blues". In 1950 he wrote and directed a Warner Bros. short subject Hands Tell the Story featuring a story told with only human hands. In 1962, his studio produced and syndicated 100 new Out Of the Inkwell cartoons, based on the Koko the Clown character, originally created by Fleischer Studios. He is best known for having produced the animated programs Milton the Monster and Batfink.
