Frank Tashlin Facts
His book "The Bear That Wasn't" was turned into an animated cartoon at MGM studios in 1967 (The Bear That Wasn't (1967)) by veteran cartoon director Chuck Jones. Jones and Tashlin were acquaintances from the Warner Bros. animation studio in the 1930s and 1940s.

According to Tashlin, he was fired from his animator job at Warner Brothers in 1936 when producer Leon Schlesinger discovered that Tashlin was also drawing a successful daily comic strip, "Van Boring," that was running in the Los Angeles Times. Schlesinger demanded a cut of Tashlin's profits from the comic strip, Tashlin refused, and Schlesinger fired him.

One of the few directors to successfully make the transition from animation to live-action. One critic noted that he directed his cartoons like live-action films and his live-action films like cartoons.
