I was just watching the Breakdowns of 1939 footage on the new Porky Pig set and I was wondering, who directed and animated this footage?

I'm wondering too, but to me it looks like a mix of both Clampett, and Ben Hardaway's designs of Porky.

I'm thinking it was directed by Bob Clampett, as the Porky design looks a lot like his, and he loved risque jokes (just look at the silkworm gags in "Porky's Party", for example.) As for who animated it, I don't know as I have a sort-of hard time identifying animators in the Clampett unit.

Apologize for the bump, but I believe the animator is Herman Cohen. The loose animation of Porky getting hit by his hammer is alike to Cohen's Hardaway-Dalton animation, plus Cohen drew his characters with extra detail (like detailed teeth, wrinkles, etc.), which Porky has in the clip. I could be wrong though...

As for director, I don't know. Since Cohen (probably) animated it, Hardaway maybe??

I did a search for "Breakdowns" here, but did not find an answer to my question which follows. Does anyone know how many "Breakdowns" were created and may be sitting in the vaults waiting to be released? That Porky breakdown was quite edgy for it's time and still gets a huge laugh from everyone I know who watch it today. So, I was of course wondering what other Looney Tunes "Breakdowns" might actually exist.

from what i understand only one looney tunes breakdown was made, that being the one produced for 1939's breakdown reel. (the breakdown series consisted of outtakes from movies warner was producing)
