* WorldOfJerkass: His cartoons tend to have a cynical worldview. Almost all of his characters--even his interpretation of Bugs--are grumpy, middle aged curmudgeons, with the main contrasts in the different characters' personalities being how smart or how stupid the various curmudgeons were.

[=McKimson=] created WesternAnimation/FoghornLeghorn, Hippety Hopper (a recurring adversary of Sylvester whom he mistook for a giant mouse), and the Tasmanian Devil. In all three cases, he directed every outing for those characters. [=McKimson=] also technically created Speedy Gonzales (basing it on a Mexican man he met once who was very friendly and excitable and, despite most outward opinions, was ''not'' meant to be a stereotype of all Mexicans), though it was Friz Freleng's version which everyone knows and remembers today. Even as late as 1968, [=McKimson=] was creating new characters in the hope that they would catch on and become recurring (which, sadly, didn't happen, as the era of theatrical cartoons was waning, thanks to television). His Bunny and Claude (a parody of ''Film/BonnieAndClyde'') and Rapid Rabbit characters are examples of this. He also directed two RoadRunner cartoons (Rushing Roulette and Sugar and Spies), among 14 ''not'' directed by Jones (the rest were directed by Rudy Larriva and [[FanonDiscontinuity are despised and/or forgotten about by amateur and professional theatrical cartoon fans alike]]).
