Personal Quote:

[Phil Monroe, an animator at Warner Bros., on working with Clampett] His strongest point would be that when you talked to him about the story, he'd get you enthused with his story points. He was always talking to you. He would get up and act out something; he was very descriptive. See more »


While most other Bugs Bunny cartoons portrayed Bugs as the generally clever and collected character who always wins, Clampett's cartoons sometimes portrayed Bugs as being on the losing end of things (e.g. Falling Hare (1943), Tortoise Wins by a Hare (1943)). See more »


[stretch animation] The characters in his animated films would stretch out double in body length whenever frighten, excited, or hurt. See more »
