He had his own series of solo stories in 1943-44, then was a prominent guest star in various Bugs, Porky, and Henery Hawk stories for quite awhile afterward. He was treated, essentially, as the "Goofy" of the WB gang, and I can see why readers liked him.
So—it makes sense that the WB front office would have ordered more Beaky cartoons.
But how do we know they did? I've heard it cited here before, but never from a verifiable source. Can anyone give me a source for the information?
Indeed, it's pure speculation, but it does make sense. I can't remember where I first heard the theory, it may have even been from a member on this forum.
