The Tasmanian Devil, or “Taz,” is one of the most popular characters in the Looney Toons stable since his 1954 appearance in “Devil May Hare.” Taz’s typical pairing was with Bugs Bunny, though he did pair off with Daffy Duck in 1957’s “Ducking The Devil.”
Created by Robert McKimson, the artist and director was fairly correct with his depiction of Taz. Like the real Tasmanian devil, McKimson’s is stout, with a broad head and foul temper. The real devil, however, is nocturnal, a marsupial and does not move in a tornado fashion.
The artwork for “You Dirty Devil,” was originally produced in house for the Warner Bros. Studio Stores.
