The animated title sequence to A SHOT IN THE DARK (1964), designed by DePatie–Freleng. (The film, featuring Peter Sellers as Clouseau, was the second film in the Pink Panther series.)
Peter Sellers—such a spookily brilliant actor: HOFFMAN, THE BLOCKHOUSE, BEING THERE, Kubrick’s stuff.

Toons who could be siblings in the same way Mickey and Oswald are because they were created/animated by the same guy
I’m obsessed with toons, that’s plain to see for anyone who goes through my posts. I’m also obsessed with learning about the hands and the geniuses behind my favourite toons. I’ve loved Mickey and Oswald since I found out about them 8 years ago and I LOVE the toon headcanons where their creators are basically the toons’ father like Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks to Mickey and Oswald. So here’s a list of cartoon characters who share the same creator/animator:
Betty Boop and Snow White
Both these lovely ladies were designed and animated by Grim Natwick.
2. Daffy Duck and Red Hot Riding Hood
Tex Avery is credited both with the creation of these two. Guess that means Daffy’s related to Droopy too huh.
3. Porky Pig and Pink Panther
Both are creations of Friz Freleng
4. Bugs Bunny and Woody Woodpecker
Ben “Bugs” Hardaway is the creator of both Bugs Bunny and Woody Woodpecker. He created Bugs’ prototype and later became the namesake for this lovable hare. If I recall this correctly, early Woody’s laugh sounded a lot like early 40′s Bugs Bunny’s laugh. I pin Mel Blanc solely on that one.
5. Tom and Jerry and Huckleberry Hound (or basically all the toons from Hanna-Barbera Studios)
All characters involved are creations of William Hanna and Joseph Barbera (damn that’s a lot of siblings)
6. Mickey Mouse and Gabby Goat
(Precious, are you telling me this mouse has ANOTHER BROTHER???) Yes. You wanna know what makes it funnier.
He’s a Looney Tune.
Ub Iwerks worked at Warner Bros for a short bit, working on Porky Pig cartoons. While there, he and Bob Clampett made a character to be the Donald to Porky’s Mickey. Literally. He’s a very grumpy goat.
BONUS: 7. Goofy and The Evil Queen
Not gonna lie, I straight up fangirled like crazy when I found out Art Babbitt designed and animated the both of them. Like my soul nearly left my body. He was the main animator behind both of them!!!
Anyhoo, better stop fangirling over Art Babbitt and finally post this. Feel free to add anything in the reblogs.
