Pratt, Hawley

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on March 22, 2004

    Outstanding figure in the Freleng unit, whose layout work was essential in making that unit’s cartoons some of the slickest ever to come from the studio. Like several other top staff members, he was given the chance to direct in the early 1960s.

    A box of “Hawley & Pratt” baking soda can be seen in I Taw a Putty Tat (Freleng, 1948), in another one of the many little jokes Paul Julian slipped into his backgrounds.

    Filmography as director:

        The Pied Piper of Guadalupe (with Freleng, 1961)
        Prince Violent (with Freleng, 1961)
        The Last Hungry Cat (with Freleng, 1961)
        Crows Feat (with Freleng, 1962)
        Mexican Boarders (with Freleng, 1962)
        Senorella and the Glass Huarache (1964)
