In honor of Bob Clampett's 100th birthday, I have written about aspects of his Warner Brothers cartoons that have not yet been analyzed in detail. Here, I will provide direct access links to anything I have written on Clampett's films.
Clampett Cartoons on DVD and Blu ray
A list of where to find official releases of more than half his Looney Tunes und Merrie Melodies.
A short analysis of Chuck Jones' emerging style of pose-to-pose with de-emphasizing the inbetween drawings in comparison to Clampett's focus on the action between the poses.
Cartoon Poses, Specific Expressions and Motion Blur
Horton Hatches the Egg
Among them are specific expressions with teeth, a suicide gag, a typically silly walk and a one-wing flight cycle.
Cartoon Characters Dressed Up As Animals
Most of his animal characters (especially Daffy) feel like humans stuck in animal dresses.
Breathing Life Into Inanimate Objects
Materiality is not sacred in these cartoons, even guns can appear rubbery at times. There is a trademark gag starting very early based on a gun that spits bullets from a mouth with a tongue.
