“He stole our prettiest gals, too,” says narrator Tex Ritter about the title character of The First Bad Man (released in 1955). The Stone Age desperado scoops up the women in a saloon and takes his pick. However, she can take care of herself.
Ed Benedict, who designed the Flintstones a few years later, designed the characters in this Tex Avery cartoon. Walt Clinton, Ray Patterson, Mike Lah and Grant Simmons are the credited animators.
