Overview

"I Say, I Say . . . Son!": A Tribute to Legendary Animators Bob, Chuck, and Tom McKimson by Robert McKimson


“I Say, I Say . . . Son!” offers a rare behind-the-scenes look at the work of the McKimson brothers, three of the most accomplished and influential animators in history.

Tracing the brothers’ careers from the 1920s onward, this beautifully illustrated book details how Bob McKimson created such beloved characters as Foghorn Leghorn, the Tasmanian Devil, Sylvester Jr., and the original Speedy Gonzales, and explores Chuck and Tom McKimson’s voluminous body of work at Warner Bros. Cartoons, Dell Comics, and Golden Books.

Featuring original art from the Golden Age of Animation, “I Say, I Say . . . Son!” includes a wealth of material from the top animation archives—original drawings, reproductions of animation cels, comic book illustrations, lobby cards, and screen captures—along with never-before-seen photographs and other memorabilia from author Robert McKimson Jr.’s personal collection.

“I Say, I Say . . . Son!” is a vibrant tribute to three groundbreaking animators whose long careers included work on the Looney Tunes, Pink Panther, and Mr. Magoo series, as well as many other animation classics.
