The town of Portis, Kansas erected this memorial to one of
it's most famous sons, Melvin "Tubby" Millar. Here's a photo of
the memorial which was taken by a true "cartoon lover". ;)
The Millar Memorial has the following written on it:
In memory of Melvin Tubby Millar, animator
for Looney Tunes Porky Pig cartoons and
assistant to Friz Freleng, creator of Porky Pig.
Millar worked the name of his hometown into several cartoons -
hiding it in the background
or even using it for a character name. Among these were
Bingo Crosbyana (Freleng, 1936),
(King, 1936) , Porky of the North Woods (Tashlin, 1936) ,
Porky's Road Race
(Tash, 1937) , "Sniffles and the Bookworm" and "The Case of the Stuttering Pig".
