Animator. He is remembered for bringing his drawing talents to many early classic cartoon films and shorts. Endres began his career as an animator during the 1920s when he entered a drawing contest with a picture of a character named Ko Ko the Clown. He won the contest and was offered a job in 1930, working for the famed animator Max Fleischer at his studios in New York City. It was here that Endres began his work on such classic cartoon characters as Betty Boop, Popeye the Sailor, Felix the Cat, and Superman. His many animation credits include, the animated films, "Judge For A Day" (1935), "The Impratical Joker" (1937), "Gulliver's Travels" (1939), "Mr. Bugs Goes To Town" (1941), "The Fly's Last Flight" (1949), "Taxi-Turvy" (1954), "Felineous Assault" (1959), "The Shady Shadow" (1967), "Tough MacDuff' (1967), and "The Mad Magazine TV Special" (1974). He also animated the cartoon television programs, "The Mighty Hercules" in 1963, and "Spider-Man" from 1968 to 1970. Besides his work with the Fleischer Studios, he also worked for several other studios over the years. At the outbreak of World War II, he served as an instructor at the United States Naval Air Technical Training Center, and on board the warship, the USS Wasp. His later years was spent between Maryland and Florida. He continued to draw up until his death. (bio by: K)
