The Bob Clampett Show is an animated anthology television series which ran from 2000 to 2001. The show features animated theatrical shorts from the Warner Bros. library that were animated or directed by Bob Clampett, as well as a selection of shorts from the Beany and Cecil animated television series. It originally was produced by and aired on Cartoon Network, with reruns airing at the tail end of Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block in the mid-2000s. Twenty-six episodes were made in all.

This was one of two animated anthology shows on Cartoon Network (Joining The Popeye Show) that aired uncut and uncensored shorts, as well as shorts that would normally get little to no airtime on American TV due to racially insensitive and outdated content (Such as Russian Rhapsody and Bacall to Arms), though Kristopher Kolumbus, Jr., the 1938 version of Injun Trouble (Ironically, its color remake, Wagon Heels aired), Pilgrim Porky and the Censored Eleven shorts Coal Black and de Sebben Dwarves and Tin Pan Alley Cats were the only Bob Clampett shorts that never aired on the show; the version of Farm Frolics shown was the Blue Ribbon Merrie Melodies reissue with a missing tobacco spitting joke and a truncated beginning that, as of 2023, was found; and while there was mention of the violent director's cut ending of Hare Ribbin', the version that aired had the general release ending instead.
