Added DiffLines:

* ItRunsInTheFamily: All three [=McKimson=] brothers worked in animation: Bob was both an animator and director, Tom was a background artist/layout artist/animator during the '40s, and Charles was an animator during the late '30s-mid '50s, later working for Bob (and animating in much the same style as his brother). Their mother was also a talented artist.

* {{Workaholic}}: Had a positive reputation in the animation industry as a hard worker; on his first day at Warner Bros., for example, he got right to work at 8 o'clock. He also consistently completed ''twice'' the amount of required footage per day, and doing it professionally to boot!

Despite these merits, as well as directing the third most shorts out of all the directors (141 total), [=McKimson=] isn't recognized as much as the other two "big" directors at WB. Part of this may be the fact that he never had a feature length compilation film that highlighted his work; Creator/ChuckJones had one film and Creator/FrizFreleng had three (it should be noted that two of Friz's movies featured [=McKimson=]'s cartoons, however). Part of this may also be due to his post-1955 shorts, which featured slower timing, simpler animation, and less interesting direction than his pre-1955 output [[note]]Explanation: WB briefly closed in 1953 and temporarily laid everybody off. Unlike Jones and Freleng, [=McKimson=] basically had to restart his unit from scratch when WB reopened its cartoon unit, so that certainly put him at a disadvantage for a while, not least because his new unit was mostly made up of the animators that Jones and Freleng didn't want.[[/note]] He also gave few interviews before his death, which made it difficult to get an insight into his directing methods and philosophies. Luckily, [[http://www.michaelbarrier.com/Interviews/McKimson/McKimson.html a recently-posted vintage interview on Michael Barrier's website, along with a biography written by Robert [=McKimson=] Jr. released in 2012, rectify that]].

* ExecutiveMeddling: [=McKimson=] was ordered by producer Eddie Selzer not to make any more Tasmanian Devil cartoons after the first one. However, thanks to fan feedback and orders from Jack Warner, [=McKimson=] was allowed to make more Taz cartoons.
