* 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 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.

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]])

* TheFriendNobodyLikes: Clampett's alleged unprofessional antics and tendency to steal credit for work earned him a fair few enemies with Termite Terrace. ChuckJones and MelBlanc especially spoke derogatory of him. Even those who had a fond opinion of him such as FrankTashlin and RobertMcKimson made no denial that all the stories about him were true.

** A trademark of Clampett's, even when compared to the works of Creator/MaxAndDaveFleischer. It's very easy to see why Creator/JohnKricfalusi (and a lot of other animation show runners and directors who brought DerangedAnimation back to kids' cartoons in the 1990s, particularly those who worked on ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog'' and ''The Twisted Tales of Felix the Cat'') love the man.

While for many years he was an esoteric director (his influenced downplayed in favor of the other directors, and his smaller output compared to them) but his cartoons have gained a surprisingly large fanbase in recent years, receiving praise and admiration from professionals like [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Milt Gray]], [[NoteworthyDisneyStaff Eric Goldberg]] and Creator/JohnKricfalusi (the latter being his protege and biggest fan, is heavily influenced by him, and is also partly responsible for getting Clampett's shorts back into the limelight). As such, a large number of his cartoons have gained acclaim, with 21 shorts getting not only onto Literature/The100GreatestLooneyTunes list, but also five of them making it as winners (with five more as runner-ups) on The50GreatestCartoons list.

In 1941, Avery left the studio...but Clampett, having learned quite a thing or two from him, began experimenting with his own style of animation -- a very wacky, surreal one which combined the early principles of rubberhose animation from TheSilentAgeOfAnimation, with the more modern, higher quality principles and art productions of a Disney short. The results were some of the finest cartoons ever made in general, let alone by the Warner Bros. animation unit.
