An original pen and ink drawing comic page for a Taz-Mania comic strip.
Taz-Mania is an American animated sitcom produced by Warner Bros. Animation from 1991 to 1995, broadcast in the United States on Fox Kids. The show follows the adventures of the Looney Tunes character Taz (the Tasmanian Devil) in the fictional land of Tazmania (based on Tasmania).
Similar to other Warner Bros. cartoons of its time, such as Animaniacs and Tiny Toon Adventures (both of which were created by Taz-Mania co-developer Tom Ruegger), Taz-Mania frequently broke the fourth wall, and often made jokes showing that Taz could actually speak perfectly normally when he wanted to.
Dave King (born 12 February 1964) is an animation director, producer, writer and artist.
He wrote or drew strips including Count Duckula, Rugrats, Barbie, Beetlejuice, The Spice Girls, Scazza for Roy of the Rovers, Taliska's Travels in Time for Cosmic, and Dennis the Menace and Gnasher and Desperate Dan, for The Beano and The Dandy.
King worked extensively with Warner Bros. Worldwide Publishing, scripting and drawing Looney Tunes, Tiny Toon Adventures, Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain and Taz-Mania, with many of his strips published by DC Comics.
