Robert “Bob” McKimson (1910-77) and his brothers Chuck and Tom left their thumbprint on some of the greatest animation of the 20th century. Bob cut his teeth with Walt Disney before moving on to Warner Bros. to help launch its first cartoon series, Looney Tunes, in the early 1930s. During his three-decade-plus tenure with the studio, he created such immortal characters as Foghorn Leghorn, Speedy Gonzales and the Tasmanian Devil.
Lineup includes: “Hillbilly Hare,” “Devil May Hare,” “Rabbit’s Kin,” “Hot Cross Bunny,” “Foghorn Leghorn,” “Bedevilled Rabbit,” “Bill of Hare,” “Tabasco Road,” “The High and the Flighty,” “Falling Hare” and “Walky Talky Hawky.”

Robert McKimson Jr., John Kricfalusi (creator, "The Ren & Stimpy Show") and Darrell Van Citters (Renegade Animation founder and Warner Bros. alum) will sign copies of the book "I Say, I Say… Son!” A Tribute To Legendary Animators Bob, Chuck and Tom McKimson at 6:00PM in the Aero lobby.

Discussion following the screening with Robert McKimson Jr., John Kricfalusi and Darrell Van Citters, hosted by animation historian Jerry Beck.
