Often called “one of the great masters of comic timing”, and indeed he is. Friz Freleng is most famous for the creation of Porky Pig, Yosemite Sam, Sylvester and the Pink Panther and one of the few who developed the personalities of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and the design for Tweety and Speedy Gonzales. He started animating with Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks teaching him. He went with Harman and Ising to make their own animated pilot short to sale to Warner Bros. and their became the birth of the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies (both which were a variation name of Disney’s Silly Symphony).
Freleng had directed more cartoons at WB more than any other director (266) and became one of the most prolific animators of the Golden Age of Animation and the most honored and recognized, second to Chuck Jones. Freleng and Jones are the only WB directors to win Acadmey Awards (Freleng 5 awards and Jones) as well as the only ones to have their names on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
In 1963, when Warners cartoon division shut down, Freleng and David H. DePatie formed there own studio, only to create the famous Pink Panther, The Ant & The Aardvark, and more Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies. Freleng and Chuck Jones have remained the best of friends throughout the years until Freleng’s death in May 26, 1995, due to natural causes 🙁
Speedy: That fat man over at that table…take his gun, too.

Here they come, these Americanos and their covered wagons. Speedy, the days of the Dons are numbered.
