I am embarrassed to admit that as a kid, I didn't completely get how cool the style of this show was. I liked the cartoons tho. Seeing them today, I am really impressed with the blend of contemporary techniques in them. Adding to the fun, character actor Pat Harrington flawlessly channels Peter Sellers in the voice work. The irresistible Paul Frees voices most of the villians.
Storyboard artist JOHN DUNN was something of a one-man show at DePatie-Freleng studio. His super-sixties inventiveness in writing, boarding, designing and visual gags influenced every cartoon. If you haven't already, check out the ANIMATION BLAST cover story on him. Amid Amidi gives a comprehensive overview of his work, including many previously unpublished sketches, ideas and anecdotes.
