On August 21, It's All About Friz

We have been reminded by this blog that August 21 will be the centennial of the birth of esteemed Warner Bros. cartoon director Friz Freleng (1906-1995). (Some references actually cite 1905 as being his birth year, but I've long stuck by the 1906 date, particularly in light of a fall 1964 profile that gave his age at the time as 58.)

We will indeed be participating in the blogathon on that date. I haven't decided on what aspect of Friz Freleng's career we'll touch on - something he did at his own studio, or one of his Warner Bros. classics, or perhaps one of the obscure cartoons he did on a brief flirtation at MGM in 1938.
