* BigNameFan : His films had an incredible influence on the FrenchNewWave who loved his GenreBusting style and visual invention. Music/PaulMcCartney and Music/JohnLennon loved his film ''Film/TheGirlCantHelpIt'' as did several other rock stars of the 1960s. In fact, Music/TheBeatles recorded "Birthday" from ''Music/TheWhiteAlbum'' after having watched "The Girl Can't Help It" the night before on TV and being in a RockAndRoll nostalgic mood.
** Creator/JohnWaters has also acknowledged Tashlin's influence on his films, expressed [[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=-n3vyvEPgOw here]], where he gushes over ''Film/TheGirlCantHelpIt.''
** His cartoon work has just as many fans, with many accolades from historians, directors and animators alike, including Creator/JohnKricfalusi, Creator/JoeDante and Creator/EricGoldberg.
* DisownedAdaptation: He hated Chuck Jones' adaptation of "The Bear That Wasn't", as he felt the story's message got muddled.



* ProductionPosse: Tashlin worked on too many JerryLewis movies to count, both as a solo act and when he was teamed with DeanMartin. He also worked often with Creator/BobHope and Creator/JayneMansfield, so much so with the latter that she filled the role of his muse.

In 1936, Leon managed to lure Tashlin back to his studio, giving him a position as a director there, right during a time when Creator/TexAvery was starting to take the studio away from its Creator/{{Disney}} roots in favor of faster paced, more cartoony shorts. Frank jumped right in, getting off to a good head start with "Porky's Poultry Plant", where he adapted live action style fast-cutting and dynamic camera angles into his cartoons, giving them a cinematic, energetic feeling lacking from Creator/TexAvery and Creator/FrizFreleng's cartoon shorts. Despite this, he wasn't particularly happy due to him being stuck working on PorkyPig cartoons, which Tashlin later admitted was his least favorite character.

Initially, Tashlin cut his teeth working for [[Creator/{{Terrytoons}} Paul Terry]] as an animator on the ''Aesops Film Fables'' series of cartoons, only to quickly drift off to another animation stint at Creator/VanBeurenStudios. Finally, in 1932, he found work at the then-rising WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes and [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Merrie Melodies]] cartoon studio, working as an animator, while working on a short lived comic strip in his spare time called ''Van Boring'', the name being obvious jab at his previous boss. When Leon tried to swindle Frank into giving him a cut of the comics profits, Frank told him to shove it and promptly lost his job as a result. Once again adrift, he did a brief stint at the UbIwerks cartoon studio in 1934, only to leave in 1935 to be a writer on Hal Roach's ''[[Film/TheLittleRascals Our Gang]]'' series of live comedies. During this time, he learned quite a bit about live-action film-making, including film-camera techniques.

* TakeThat: The name of ''Van Boring'', a newspaper comic he ran for a few years, was a jab at his old animation boss [[Creator/VanBeurenStudios Amadee Van Beuren.]]
* TheVoiceless: His newspaper comic character ''Van Boring'' had no dialogue from the protagonist--the humor was entirely done in pantomime.

He would once again return to Creator/WarnerBros in 1943, this time bringing a stylized, magazine-like angular designs to his new shorts. Some of these later shorts of his had noticeable sexual themes, particularly ''WesternAnimation/PlaneDaffy'' (which had a femme fatale character named Hata Mari, whose blond hair and top-heavy hourglass figure would be a reality in the form of JayneMansfield) and "Stupid Cupid". It's been said that the difference between Creator/BobClampett's cartoons and Frank Tashlin's cartoons in terms of risqué humor is that Tashlin was more polished and subtle while Clampett was broader, wilder, and more adolescent.
