Bob Weber Sr.


Bob Weber Sr., creator of Moose and Molly, always knew he wanted to be a professional cartoonist. He attended the School of Visual Arts in New York City in 1953.

Weber worked for trade journals and wrote gag ideas for other cartoonists. He got his biggest break after meeting cartoonist Dick Cavelli. Weber wrote the overworked Cavelli a letter asking to be his assistant, and while he did not get the job at first, he developed a long-lasting correspondence with the cartoonist. About six months later, Weber moved to Connecticut to work as Cavelli’s assistant.

Weber has taught cartooning at the Smithsonian Institution and several libraries and YMCAs in Connecticut, where he and his family live.
