The oldest of the three talented McKimson brothers began his career with Disney in 1928, assistant to Norman Ferguson. His next sojourn was with the fledgling animation team ofHugh Harman and Rudolf Ising, who went on to inaugurate the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons for Warner Brothers, under the auspices of Leon Schlesinger. Harman and Ising eventually moved on after a dispute over money, while Tom stayed on as animator and layout artist with Robert Clampett's unit at Schlesinger's 'Termite Terrace'. Tom was instrumental in developing the Bugs Bunny character and is credited with creating the characters of Tweetie Pie and Beaky Buzzard. From 1947 until his retirement in 1972, Tom worked for Dell Comics/Western Publishing as art director and illustrator, creating drawings for Bugs Bunny and Road Runner comic strips and colouring books. Along with younger brother Charles (who joined Dell in 1954), Tom also created and illustrated the Roy Rogers Daily Comic Strip. - IMDb Mini Biography By: I.S.Mowis
