O.K., now that hopefully everyone is familiar with one of the best cartoon shorts of all time, we can get back to Brave and Bold's homage to the Clampett classic.

To get the gouache painted look of the original Clampett cartoon, I not only used Adobe Photoshop (which we usually use to paint the backgrounds on B:TB&tB), but I also used Corel Painter. Corel Painter was good for mimicking the paper and paint texture that you would get with water color paints. Whenever possible, I tried to match the color for our segment with backgrounds from "The Great Piggy Bank Robbery".
