Butler, David

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on January 30, 2004

(1894-1979)

    Light comedy and musical director from the 1920s through the 1960s for various studios, including Warner Brothers. Butler directed the feature Two Guys From Texas (1948) which featured an animation sequence by Friz Freleng. Interestingly, Chuck Jones chose to call the bombastic director shooting a feature in the Pépe le Pew short Past Perfumance (1955) “David Butlaire”. A mocking tribute, or something done out of affection?
