The Deleo Animation Trust

The Deleo Animation trust has been founded by Deleo's grandson in 2001.

Aptly he has been named Raoul after his famous grandfather. He works as an illustrator and animator as well. So to keep the two apart his parents used to call him "Junior".

Deleo junior sees it as his duty to make sure that the animations made by his grandfather will remain preserved for viewing by future audiences.

He also tries to recover all the other episodes of Rufus that have been lost in time. It is known that there must have been 26 episodes made by Deleo senior.

The "Bouncin' Buddy" episode is the first major accomplishment of the trust. This episode has been recovered and restored in 2005.

But the search will go on and hopefully will bare fruit in the coming years....
