2 Origins Hugh Harmon and Rudy Isling (from Kansas City w/ Disney’s Laugh-o-grams) Developed first character, Bosko Set the standard for the “funny” cartoon Created more beloved characters than any other studio Concentrated more on dialog (in contrast to Steamboat Willie) Dynamic animators, allowed for the personalities of the directors to show through characters

3 The personalities of the directors shows through to the animation. Disney studios were all about seeing things only Disney’s way. Warner Brothers allowed each character to be “tweaked” by directors. Tex Avery, Chuck Jones, Bob Clampett, Mel Blanc, Carl Stalling Avery directed Chuck Jones and Bob Clampett (who were both not enjoying the studio) All 3 were all put in a room away from the main studio (where Freleng was), named it Termite Terrace Allowed to challenge the conventional wisdom of cartoons They were creative, energetic, worked nights, excited to try something new Tex believed in giving the audience what it didn’t expect Mel Blanc contributed the voice talent and Carl Stalling provided music The result is by many to be considered the golden age of cartoons (Looney Tunes, Merry Melodies) Among the many, characters include Porky, Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny, Elmer Fudd, Sylvester, Tweety, Road Runner, Wile E Coyote, Grinch (w/ MGM)

4 Chuck Jones, One of the most recognized name among cartoon directors Abstract backgrounds, stylized animation, still frames, clarity of timing, clever use of camera angles, gags One of his first true classics displaying these ideas was Dover Boys The Dover Boys,(1942), Chuck Jones Limited stylized animation, characters holding still, drawings smear between poses One Froggy Evening, 1955, Chuck Jones Refines technique of subtle expressions (sideways glance, nose wiggle

5 The resulting contribution of these men is by many to be considered the Golden Age of Cartoons (Looney Tunes & Merry Melodies) (follows the path of Disney’s “Silly Symphonies”) Among the many, characters include Porky Pig Daffy Duck Bugs Bunny Elmer Fudd Sylvester Tweety Road Runner Wile E Coyote Yosemite Sam Pepe Le Pugh Marvin the Martian
