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.

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