Friz Freleng, American animator, cartoonist, director and producer. Born Isadore Freleng, he started going by Friz, (the nickname given to him because his hair was so frizzy), as he felt his real name was too German...given the post World War II climate. Friz helped develop Looney Tunes great, including Bugs Bunny, Tweety Bird, Sylvester the cat, Yosemite Sam and Speedy Gonzales. Later in his career he brought us The Pink Panther Show. Friz is one of the great fathers of animation.
