Time for Clampett !

Well, I want you to see how great was Bob Clampett as a director from the very beginning.
While great attention is given to the "Man from Wackyland" masterpieces, like " Coal Black", " Tin Pan Alley Cats", "Kitty Kornered", "The Great Piggy Bank Robbery" et cetera, less or not attention at all is given to his b/w cartoons, with the single exception of "Porky in Wackyland".

I want to show you how Clampett was able to create funny and wacky characters and situations, even with his low budget of the Thirties.
I'll update this post very soon with more amazing images!
As for now, enjoy these ones...and try to guess from which cartoons they come from!

















Yours Truly,

The first four stills are from Porky's Tire Trouble (1939), the next still is from Polar Pals(1939), the one after that is Porky's Picnic (1939), and the rest are from Porky's Last Stand (1940).

I love Porky's Last Stand to bits. That Silly Syphonies like song when Daffy tosses a pile of plates onto himself makes me cry laughing every time.

Now there's some B&W cartoons I can enjoy! I love his B&W cartoons, especially Porky In Egypt! Especially the camel's crazed monologue!

"Time for Clampett !"

Hey, when is it NOT time for Clampett. ;)

btw, I love that shot of Porky's Naughty Nephew about to snip off a squirrel's head. It's cute and cruel at the same time. Only Clampett could have pulled that off so beautifully.

I was the only kid on my block who never watched cartoons. At least now I can appreciate the artistic sensibility behind them.

Excellent blog - breaking down the toons into their building blocks really helps me appreciate the craft and vision of the artists - they're not just cartoons anymore

These cartoons are truly classic...a great feel of nostalgia and they are reminiscent of what might seem to be a simpler and kinder time.

Cool cartoons, I haven't seen them since I was a kid. There was a local television station that use to play them called Mr. Cartoon. I really wish they played these more on television now.

This blog rocks. My brother and I used to watch classic cartoons on TNT in the early to mid 90's they would play them for hours. It seemed like the ones that they played were uncut and untouched unlike what they do with them today. Peace.

I LOVE the old toons...I have a Bugs Bunny storyboard, but it's not that old, from 1977 and I collect cels from the Ewoks series (certainly not as great as these works of art) because I love to draw I am amazed at the amount of work it took to create. Thanks for sharing these great stills!

I think a clip of the (whatever it is) playing xylophone on the whale's teeth was used in the video for Devo's "The Day My Baby Gave Me a Surprize." Interesting...
