Crazylegs Crane (16 Cartoons) (DVD)
Directed by Fritz Freleng
Larry D. Mann
After appearing as supporting character in the Tijuana Toads, Blue Racer and Dogfather cartoons, Crazylegs Crane earned a starring role in his own series of animated shorts, broadcast as part of the The All-New Pink Panther Show. In 16 short comedies, the dim-witted, flight challenged bird hatches elaborate schemes to dominate his swampy home. When not tripping over the complexity of his own backfiring plots, the dopey crane is foiled by a mischievous dragonfly, who playfully reminds Crazylegs he's not the mastermind he thinks he is.
DVD Extras Include:
Commentaries for selected episodes by Friz Freleng (compiled from archival interviews), filmmaker Greg Ford, author Mark Arnold, and historian Jerry Beck | New documentary on the history of DePatie-Freleng Enterprises, featuring interviews with Friz Freleng, Greg Ford, animator/director Art Leonardi, ink & paint artist Barbara Donatelli, Jerry Beck, and critic Will Friedwald.
