Carman “Max” Maxwell was a former Disney animator who helped originate the Warner Bros. cartoon studio with Hugh Harman and Rudolf Ising. For a time in the 1920s when Disney was bankrupt, he teamed with Harman & Ising on a proposed “Arabian Nights” series of cartoons, though they were never sold. He was the performer of the voice of Bosko in the Looney Tunes series. He was also one of the few animators who went with Harman and Ising when they left WB for MGM. When MGM fired Harman and Ising for a time in the late 1930s, Maxwell became the new production manager.
