Heck Allen

writer, actor

Heck Allen was born on Sep 29, 1912 in USA. Heck Allen's big-screen debut came with Jitterbug Follies directed by Milt Gross in 1939. Heck Allen is known for Woody Woodpecker and His Friends directed by John Semper, Daws Butler stars as Various Voices and Paul Frees as Various Voices. The upcoming new movie Heck Allen plays is North Star which will be released on Oct 25, 1996.

Heck Allen was "Story Man" (or "Gag Man") for most of Tex Avery's best MGM cartoons from 1944 through 1955, which to this day are some of the funniest cartoons ever made. Allen was responsible for some of the most outlandish, side-splittingly hilarious gags in the history of animated short subjects. Although Allen also worked for Walter Lantz (producer of the Woody Woodpecker and Chilly Willy cartoons, among others) as well as with other MGM cartoon directors, it was when he teamed up with Avery that his comedic cartoon talent really shone. Allen worked with Avery on cartoons starring such characters as Droopy Dog, Screwy Squirrel, the ultra-sexy Red, The Wolf, and George and Junior. In addition, Allen and Avery created many "one-off" cartoons, which featured characters who appeared in only a single cartoon, including Le chat qui détestait les gens (1948) and Le canari grand format (1947).
