Blue, Ben

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on January 30, 2004

(1901-1975)

    Ephraim Katz, in his film encyclopedia, describes Ben Blue as a “sad-faced, rubber limbed deadpan mime, comedian and dancer of stage, screen and TV.” Blue did short subject work for Warners, and it may have been from these shorts that Chuck Jones drew the inspiration for the Conrad Cat character used in the early forties.
