Re: Remaking the past: You Can't Go Home Again?

I think that attentive and skillful people can recreate art from a given era if they have all the necessary information and technology. That said, why would one want to other than as a one-off, a stunt or a pastiche? What endures about work that's remembered is not only style and technique but content, and that content is created by the individuals working at the time on that particular project. It's that - when he compares the music in the new cartoon unfavorably with Scott Bradley's, or argues that the animation doesn't reflect Bill Hanna's sense of timing - which Mayerson effectively critiques here.
