I'd have to go with John K despite the fact that he can't keep a series going for more than two seasons.

I can't believe anyone would vote for him.

Unfortunately, I'm not knowledgeable enough to know the difference between Jones/Clampett/Freleng. But I do know those classic WB shorts are way better than John K's constant disgusting detailed closeups of hairy warty asses.

^I agree.

You shouldn't have made it a poll, there are plenty more directors. Or you could've at least put an "other" option.

Anyway I don't know enough about what they've done to vote. But I do know enough to know not to vote for someone who brought us shit like the Ripping Friends and the Ren and Stimpy Adult Party Cartoon.

Ahh.. I vote Chuck Jones. I like the distinctive look of the characters in his programs. I especially liked the Grinch animation.
But, I mean.. I agree with the guys.. There are a lot of animation directors I'd rather vote for. Say, Jay Ward, Hideaki Anno, Shinichiro Wantanabe, Mike Judge and Don Herzfeldt.

I won't stand for all this Ren and Stimpy bashing. It was one of if not the best cartoon of all time before nickleodeon made it suck by sacking John K for no good reason.

You're right though, I should have made an 'other' option. I thought of it right after I posted it but there doesn't seem to any way to edit polls.

The immortal Chuck Jones and Tex Avery are both marvelous directors (or Fred Quimby). I'd go for Mr Jones in the end though I'm a big admirer of his animation.

Max & David Fleisher (one was a director, one was a producer, I always get them mixed up), who directed the old Betty Boop and Popeye cartoons. I can't belive you didn't include them. The direction in the Fleisher Studios Popeye cartoons is "Tha shit y'all" (I mean that in a good way). For those of you not aware of the Fleisher's work, they're the ones who came up with the idea of giving characters rubbery limbs, and pretty much invented the idea of inserting little jokes into signs in the background of cartoons(Something which was often used on Futurama).

In terms of modern day directors (IE, ones that aren't dead) I really like David Silverman's work on The Simpsons, as well as the woman who directed "I Do'h Bot". Mike Judge is quite good as well.

Hayao Miyazaki gets my vote, or he would if he had been included in this poll.  Face it, no one else is even in the same league.

Out of those listed, I'd pick Chuck Jones.

I was originally going to make this a 'best warner bros animation director' poll but I wanted to include John Kricfalusi so I thought I'd just make it 'all time best animation director' figuring that most people would vote for either Chuck Jones or Tex Avery anyway.
But you're right, I completely forgot about Miyazaki, Judge, Hillenberg, Fleischer etc.
Let's say that from now on this is an 'all time best Waner Bros animation director' poll where 'John K' = 'other'

Interesting poll, considering that five of the six choices worked for Warner Brothers during the age of the theatrical cartoon.

I have to go with Chuck Jones, although I think Tex Avery had a greater impact on the industry.

Better you should have just made it a 'best Warner Bros. animation director' poll and left Kricfalusi out of it.

Also, you spelled Friz Freleng's name wrong.
