Richard "Dick" Thompson was an American animator who worked at several animated cartoon departments over a career of four decades. His longest association was with Chuck Jones at Warner Bros. Cartoons and M-G-M. He also worked at Hanna-Barbera and DePatie-Freleng. Notably, Thompson animated Merrie Melodies' Road Runner cartoons: "In one of the most often cited discussions of the Road Runner cartoons, Richard Thompson suggests a way to think about this unusual characteristic when he describes how "Road Runner films rank among the most austerely pared-down works of modern art."
