Glen Kennedy and other animators[edit]

The animation director for Kennedy Cartoons was almost always Glen Kennedy, who previously worked as an animator on He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, Ghostbusters, Smurfs and Jetsons: The Movie. He directed two Tiny Toons episodes, for which he was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award. His animation style is easily recognizable and is largely inspired by Bob Clampett's work on Looney Tunes. While some viewers consider his style "overly cartoony", it also has its fans for being uncommonly fluid and expressive. The studio left Warner Bros. for Disney due to the arguments about the animation. Later he directed the animation for the first season intro of Fantastic Four and The Wacky World of Tex Avery.

Dan Lee, another Kennedy Cartoons animator, went on to Pixar before his death in 2005.
