Plans for a potential Burbank animation museum are in the works, thanks in large part to a California budget allocation spearheaded by State Senator Anthony Portantino. The idea for a local museum documenting the history of the animation industry began during a career day event attended by Portantino, who is a recent Burbank resident. Numerous animators were also present at the function, and Portantino recalled that the group began chatting about the concept of incorporating 'a museum to capture the best of California's animation.
