One animation empire was built on a mouse while another one featured a rabbit. More recently, one was built on a beloved ogre, but this one was built on the unlikely combination of a moose and a squirrel. 

DreamWorks Animation and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment pay homage to the legendary American creator and animation television producer Jay Ward with a special three-month exhibit at The Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills. 

The Jay Ward Legacy Exhibit features over sixty pieces of rarely seen artwork, sculpture, and memorabilia from Jay Ward Productions—shows including Rocky and His Friends, The Bullwinkle Show, Peabody’s Improbable History, Fractured Fairytales, and Aesop and Son, DreamWorks Animation’s feature film Mr. Peabody & Sherman, and the new Rocky and Bullwinkle short film, a bonus feature on the Mr. Peabody & Sherman 3D Blu-ray. The Rocky & Bullwinkle statue that once stood on Sunset Boulevard from 1961–2013 also resides in the main foyer of the Paley Center during this exhibit.

Special thanks to those who generously loaned artwork and memorabilia for this exhibit: The Ward Family, Jay Ward Productions, Darrell Van Citters, Art Diamond, Beckie Takacs, Mike Van Eaton at the Van Eaton Galleries, Ric Scozzari, and other collectors who wish to remain anonymous.
