* [[WesternAnimation/WagonHells Injun Trouble]] 5-21: This short would later be remade in color as "Wagon Heels". Curiously, the cartoon was aired on Cartoon Network in a digitally colorized form despite the Native American stereotyping and the fact that the precense of a color remake made it superflous to air it, but the airings always trimmed out a small gag from it. This short should also not be confused with the 1969 Robert McKimson cartoon of the same name, which was the last Looney Tunes ever made.

* TheFriendNobodyLikes: Clampett's alleged unprofessional antics and tendency to steal credit for work earned him a fair few enemies with Termite Terrace. Creator/ChuckJones and Creator/MelBlanc especially spoke derogatory of him. Creator/TexAvery and Creator/FrizFreleng were also known to dislike him, but both kept it privately. Even those who had a fond opinion of him such as Creator/FrankTashlin and Creator/RobertMcKimson made no denial that few (if any) of the stories about him were true.

If it was Creator/TexAvery who realized that animation can do anything and Creator/ChuckJones who took subtle humor and stylization to new heights in animation, then it was Robert "Bob" Clampett (19131984) who injected animation with the good, old-fashioned rubber-hose style it had in the 1930s and gave it a wackier makeover. One of the most popular directors of the WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes and [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Merrie Melodies]] series of cartoon shorts made by WarnerBros during UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation (second only to Chuck Jones in popularity), Bob Clampett was nothing short of a mischief maker, being both a real life version of WesternAnimation/BugsBunny, in addition to being a real life WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck (of the [[ScrewySquirrel early, screwy variety]]).

* AuthorAppeal: Bob was a big movie buff, a huge fan of jazz music, and absolutely ''loved'' comic books and newspaper and magazine comics, particularly those of cartoonists Milt Gross, Bil Holman and George Litchty. You can find the influence of these in virtually all of his cartoons, but most notably in ''The Great Piggy Bank Robbery'', which was a big love letter by Bob to both comics like ''ComicStrip/Dick Tracy'' and film noir movies. He was also a big fan of Creator/FleischerStudios, and basically made ''Porky in Wackyland'' as a tribute to their surreal style of cartoon animation.
