DeWitt Clinton Clobber was conceived by producer Gene Deitch (Gerald McBoing-Boing, Terr'ble Thompson) as a somewhat more subtle character than what the studio had typically done before, such as Heckle and Jeckle. He was a humanoid character, the superintendent of a run-down old New York apartment building, with all the callousness and bad attitude typical of the position. And yet, he was pretty soft and quite sensitive on the inside, at least when nobody was watching. He showed true tenderness, especially, for the decrepit, disreputable building he cared for, The Flamboyant Arms, and for his job of caring for it.

Clint Clobber was voiced by Allen Swift.

Clint Clobber was strictly a product of the 1950s. The first of his seven cartoons, Clint Clobber's Cat, was released during July, 1957. The last, The Flamboyant Arms, came out during April, 1959.
