Frank Tashlin Facts
While directing Bing Crosby in Say One for Me (1959), Bing mentioned to Tashlin how much he hated how he was caricatured in the Warner Bros. cartoon Swooner Crooner (1944). Tashlin laughed, and told Bing that not only did he direct that cartoon, he also animated the caricature in it!

Wrote and drew a syndicated comic strip between 1934 and 1938 based on his old boss from the Van Beuren animation studio, producer Amadee J. Van Beuren, called "Van Boring."

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.
