Frank Tashin Gets His Due
8 June 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Frank Tashlin was one of the founding fathers of the Looney Tunes, helping the set the style for the these famous cartoons. He worked with Tex Avery and other big-shot who provided these great cartoons that we still enjoy today.

In this behind-the-scene look, film historians pay tribute to this great animated director of Warner Brothers cartoons and explain who he was, what kind of guy, what kind of humor he preferred, how he worked up the ladder from copy boy to animator to director. His first directed short was "Porky's Poultry Plant." Frank and came in around the same time as another big name: Tex Avery. Both guys shared a wacky sense of humor!

Tashlin is different from most animators in that he spent the last few decades as a director for live-action films (regular films) and made hit movies with Bob Hope, Jerry Lewis, Doris Day, Rock Hudson, Jayne Mansfield and others.

As someone who appreciates great visuals, it was interesting to be informed and to see the Art Deco designs and other forms of artwork Tashin used in his cartoons. He may not have the big name in animation that Avery has, but he was close in talent.

Some people might find this "documentary" boring but I thought it was pretty good. You can see it on the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume Three DVD.
