Bob Clampett

Looney Tunes had a studio full of talented directors, but my all time favorite was, is and always will be: Bob Clampett. He was described as the nuttiest one of the group, and his cartoons stretched the limits of what not just Looney Tunes, but animation as a medium, could do.

He was the man who created Tweety, (inspired by his nude baby picture) and created the wonderfully surreal, Wackyland. You can probably guess that some of my favorites were directed by him. Including: “Porky in Wackyland” (natch), “The Great Piggybank Robbery,” Baby Bottleneck”, “A Tale of Two Kitties”,  A Gruesome Twosome”, “Wacky Blackout”, “The Bashful Buzzard” “Tortoise Wins by a Hare” and one that I shall be talking about next time.
