Cartoon Art Museum curator Andrew Farago speaks in ‘Looney’ tongues! (Interview)


Anyway, I’m telling you this as a way of introducing my guest, Andrew Farago. He’s the author of a clever new coffee table book, The Looney Tunes Treasury. In it, each illustration-packed chapter is written by Andrew in the voice of a different Looney character, from Bugs and Daffy to Marvin and Tweety.

As if that wasn’t enough, the Treasury is packed with unique collectibles, such as The ACME Catalog – that’s where super-genius Wile E. Coyote gets great deals on anvils – and Daffy Duck stickers.

I met Andrew five years ago at his day job; he’s the curator of the fabulous Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco. I was there as a guest speaker that day and had the opportunity to tour the museum’s amazing exhibits and awesome gift shop. Next time you’re in that bay area, don’t miss it!

We watched these things together as much as we could when I was a kid.”
