Chuck Jones, Tex Avery, Friz Freleng, Bob Clampett. Just some of the people responsible for Warner Bros.' conquering the world of animation during the Golden Age of hollywood cartoons.

There were over 1,000 Looney Tunes produced during its run, and not to mention the Merrie Melodies series on top of that. They would produce over 70 cartoons a year, this is about one every week and a half. And that's from bottom to top. These guys were animating maniacs, and were able to produce quality work in that short of a span of time.

Here are two of the best I think, both by Chuck Jones, the "Rabbit of Seville":


and his "What's Opera, Doc?" (hard to find, keeps getting deleted everywhere):
Small | Large


there are numerous other great cartoons. post your favorites. or ones you remember, i might be able to find them. when i look back on these cartoons, i wonder what happened to the standard of animation over the years that cheapened it into what we have today? sometimes i want to pin it on hannah barbera studios for their time-cutting approach to animation, but i can't say it's entirely their fault.

Oh snap, I never really realized how awesome the animation was in looney toons. I watched another cartoon, Dexter's lab. It looks like the used a lot of shape tweens for the lip syncing in it. But this is really not relevant. If you do want to take a gander at the episode I studied:

yeah dexter is definitely hand painted and animated.
fosters has an excellent team of animators, color artists, character designers, producers and directors. not that often they all come together to make a show as great as that.

where did you hear that? popeye has always been run under studio production, so more than two people would be involved in each episode.

@RTIL+ATHING: I never said I thought Dexter's lab was made in flash hehe; to this day I STILL have never seen a full episode of fosters home for imaginary friends. Gotta watch TeleToon more, lol.

I liked the episode of Looney toons where it was bugs bunny and elmer fudd with the opera. My father and I always talk about it, going around the house saying "Kill da rabbit! Kill da rabbit!"

*notices that it's said at the top* oops

black and white cartoons from the 30s usually were animated by one person and often lasted longer than 8 minutes (thats over 10,000 cels penciled inked and painted!!  )

Chuck Jones Daffy is about as far as I'll go with Daffy. I hate what they ended up doing with his character. I think he was the most at home in the very begining when he was just a fucking lunatic that would sing a goofy song as he chased you around the room with an axe/bowling pin/whatever

Fosters Process:
Drawn By Hand
Scanned
Made Fancier in Adobe illustrator
Animated in Flash
Everything gets put in Adobe Premere

It's not "just flash."

Also, I love those two looney tunes cartoons. My dad has always been a huge looney tunes fan, so we have all the collections on DVD, including a documentary about Chuck Jones, 'Extremes and Inbetweens.'

I love "Duck Amuck" It's definatley a classic.

One of my favorite cartoons though has gotta be "One Froggy Evening"


IF you haven't seen it yet, watch it there. I think the sound is a little off synch in that version though...

I don't think anyone said Foster's was "just flash", no major production on the market today is done in only one program period in the first place.

One Froggy Evening is another one of his big classics, I've loved that one since I was a kid.

but almost every "new cartoon series" is made in flash.

I hate it when people do flash animation on TV, because most of the time they only use it to make the show cheaper and the end results always look bad. excluding fosters home for imaginary friends of course

I sorta replied to his post wrong, but what I meant to say was, the reason that fosters looks so much better than the flashes athing is talking about, is because it has a much more complex process.

Craig Mccracken is the man. And he went to school with a bunch of awesome animators too. Brad Bird, John Lasseter, Tim Burton and him all went to CalArts.

CalArts is supposed to be a great school. I never even heard about it until last year. But I like where I am anyway.
