Cartoon Research highly recommends the cool Looney Tunes limited edition art created by Clampett Studio Collections.
Click on images above and get more information (or purchase) from our affiliate gallery GREAT AMERICAN INK.


Most "funny animal" and "animated" comics from the 1940s & 50s were written and drawn by moonlighting animation artists from Warner Bros., MGM, Screen Gems, Terrytoons and Famous Studios. It's a great way to study the animators individual styles!
I am no longer selling old comics, but you can find some of these at your local comic shop, at comic book conventions or on ebay.
