Sody Clampett, widow of Bob Clampett — creator of Beany & Cecil — died on June 21.
Mark Evanier pays tribute on News From Me:
One person I can’t believe I knew was Bob Clampett, who gave the world Beany & Cecil and who directed many of the very best Warner Brothers cartoons. And you got a bonus if you got to know Bob because you also got to know his kids and his wonderful wife, Sody. They were both very nice to me…which is not a brag on my part because they were very nice to everyone I saw around them.
Sody assisted Bob with a lot of the business end of his work and carried it on after his passing in 1984.
