The Bob Clampett Show is an animated comedy anthology series broadcast on Cartoon Network which prominently features work by famed animator Bob Clampett. Clampett notably designed Porky Pig for a Friz Freleng film made in 1935.

The series was shown uncut with introductions by vintage Looney Tunes hand-puppets and mainly drew its animated content from theatrical shorts and segments from Beany and Cecil. Though the series was a hit with fans of older animation, it ultimately was a ratings flop. The series was cancelled before the broadcast of its final episodes, but it was eventually resurrected on Adult Swim where the remaining episodes were aired.
