Wackyland

There’s an inside joke in the pan of characters which inhabit Wackyland.



You’ll notice not only a reference to Treg Brown below, but the character in the pot has huge glasses, just like caricatures of animator Bobe Cannon. The creature (voiced by Berneice Hansell) yells “So, Bobo!”



Okay, there’s another inside joke. The character with the steaming funnels has a “W” and a “B” for Warner Bros.



And here are the other creatures.



Norm McCabe and Izzy Ellis appear in the animation credits. It’s unclear who was responsible for the backgrounds. Clampett’s unit was in a separate building from the main cartoon studio. Dick Thomas was eventually his background artist but I don’t know when Thomas arrived.
