I agree, over the course of his film career, he was reigned in and sanitized and he revealed some unwelcome saccharine tendencies. Watching his specials, you can see the potential that was rarely tapped - at times, it was like watching Chuck Jones's Duck Amuck come to life.

If he channeled that energy into a threatening, antagonistic character with the right material, he could have done something pretty extraordinary.
