I chose Bob Clampett because of his major contributions to the Looney Tunes' characters and his wacky, humorous style of animation. Additionally, I thought he had such an enthusiastic mindset about how he created his cartoons which inspired me to learn more about his background and his methods. Also, it fascinated me that the movie, 'The Lost World' is what sparked his imagination for film and animation. His contributions as a pioneer are anything but miniscule. He was one of the major contributors to how we think of world-famous characters such as Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig, and Daffy Duck. He also created Tweety Bird, one of the most adorable characters, animations have to offer. Although many of his fellow animators sometimes thought of him as arrogant, I believe it was just his love of cartoons which he was so fond of.
Why did I choose Mr. Clampett?
