Hawley Pratt. Animation Layout Artist.

February 6, 2011

The name Hawley Pratt (1911-1999) probably cannot be separated from the name

Friz Freleng (1906-1995).Hawley, a highly competent animation layout artist,

worked for cartoon director Freleng during the heyday of the Warner Brothers cartoons.

He later joined Friz at DePatie-Freleng studios, best remembered for the

opening credits of the Pink Panther movie series, starring Peter Sellers.

Similar to this homage for him on the later Steve Martin Pink Panther film.

He worked on well known favourite animated characters  as The Cat In The Hat,

The Jetsons, The Flintstones, Top Cat, Sylvester and Tweetie Pie, Dick Tracy, Huckleberry Hound.. name but a few.

There are some great cartoons to watch on the Toon A Day site , that Hawley has worked upon.

You can see more of Hawley’s work and design style here, and if you like this style of artwork
