    Animator at Warners in the 1930s and early mentor to Chuck Jones, who marveled in his autobiography at the patience that Hamilton showed toward Jones’ early efforts.

    Bob Clampett in Funnyworld #12 describes how Hamilton would capture numerous flies, glue tiny paper airplanes to their wings, and let them go, creating a number of fluttering “airplanes” around his head.
