YOU'RE ALL UNDER ARREST
ABOUT THE IMAGE: You’re All Under Arrest! is taken from the 1946 classic The Great Piggy Bank Robbery, directed by Bob Clampett. The original drawing was rendered by Juan Ortiz and the master hand inked by Laurie Dindis. The background was painted by Hector Martinez, and reproduced using the fine art Giclée process.
In The Great Piggy Bank Robbery, which is a satire on film noir detective movies, Daffy Duck becomes Duck Twacy, who investigates the theft of the world’s piggy banks. The Library of Congress awarded The Great Piggy Bank Robbery as one of the best cartoons ever made and went to the great expense of striking a pristine print for their permanent collection.
ABOUT THE ARTIST: Bob Clampett was an American animator, director, producer and puppeteer known for his work on the Looney Tunes animated series from Warner Brothers. Clampett was promoted to a directorial position in 1937 and during his fifteen years at the studio, directed 84 cartoons later deemed classic and designed some of the studio's most famous characters, including Porky Pig, Daffy Duck and Tweety.
