    Bob Clampett - Air Force Squadron World War II Insignia Art (Warner Brothers, c. 1940's). Animator, producer, director, and puppeteer Bob Clampett (1913 -1984) is best known for his work on Warner Brothers Studios' Looney Tunes and the television series Time for Beany and Cecil. This is an original hand-painted WWII insignia created by Mr. Clampett for a U.S. Air Defense Artillery Group. The image of a white duck standing beside an anti-aircraft gun clutching a handful of ammunition while on the lookout for invaders from above is painted in gouache on board that has been cut out in the shape of a shield measuring approximately 6.5" x 6.5". This is an actual Bob Clampett design created and executed by him for the war effort and a truly unique piece of artwork for both animation and military collectors. It is framed under glass with a mat opening of 9.25" x 9.25" in a 15" x 15" frame. There are a few small scratches in the paint and minor edge wear; otherwise, condition is Very Good. Frame is sold as-is.
