Friz Freleng

Isadore "Friz" Freleng (21 August 1905 - 26 May 1995) was one of the earliest directors of Looney Tunes. He and fellow director Chuck Jones dominated the Warner Bros. animation studio after Leon Schlesinger left in 1944.

The nickname "Friz" came from his friend, Hugh Harman, who initially nicknamed him "Congressman Frizby" after a fictional senator who appeared in satirical pieces in the Los Angeles Examiner. Over time, this shortened to "Friz".
