Lots Of Compliments For Clampett
1 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We get a history of the famous Looney Tunes animator, a member of the famous "Termite Terrance" with Chuck Jones and a few other guys under the tutelage of Tex Avery. When Avery left, he took over the Merrie Melodies unit of WB. His cartoons were wild with tons of gags in his cartoons and a lot of energy.

Some of the nice comments about Clampett by others in here:

"In 30 seconds of a Bob Clampett cartoon, there are more ideas, original thoughts, sound ideas than are in 20 of anybody else's cartoons. They are amazing."

"He was the man who put 'looney' in "Looney Tunes."

"He was a crazy guy and of fun.....he was a lot like Bugs Bunny, doing jokes on others, but not in a mean spirit."

"Clampett saved Porky Pig and made him what he is and how we know him today."

I was glad to see a great cartoon like "Porky In Wackyland" get good publicity in here. You listen to these experts on animation and you realize how highly regarded is Clampett. This, plus a lot of other comments and history about Clampett, can be seen on this feature which is on disc three of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume Two DVD.
