Creator of Filmation

Hal Sutherland was an animator who began his career as a Disney animator in 1954 working on Sleeping Beauty and gained recognition in the late 1960s as a director of animated productions at Filmation.

One of the company's three co-founders, Sutherland had a hand in a large number of Filmation's limited animation productions which were broadcast as Saturday morning cartoons. Sutherland's directorial assignments included the first sixteen episodes of Star Trek: The Animated Series in 1973 and The New Adventures of Flash Gordon in 1979. He also directed some of Filmation's memorable superhero cartoons, including The Adventures of Batman, The Batman/Superman Hour, Aquaman, and The Superman/Aquaman Hour of Adventure all in the late 1960s.

Sutherland went into semi-retirement in 1974, moving to Washington state to focus on fine-art painting. One of Sutherland's later assignments with Filmation was as Production Director for the television series He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, which began airing in 1983. He also directed the rather dark Pinocchio and the Emperor of the Night. Hal Sutherland's last project with Filmation to date was the Snow White sequel Happily Ever After which was finished in 1988 and released in 1993.

Leonard), whose three signs point in different directions, all marked "Emerald City". They later meet Pumpkinhead (voiced by Paul Lynde), the unwilling servant of antagonist Mombi. Toto chases a cat to a small cottage where Dorothy is captured by Mombi's pet crow (voiced by Mel Blanc) and Mombi (voiced by Ethel Merman) herself. Pumpkinhead sneaks into the house in Mombi's absence, and discovers her creation of green elephants, to use as her army to conquer the Emerald City. Pumpkinhead frees Dorothy, and they flee.
