Clarence Rigby was an American newspaper artist, cartoonis and illustrator.  He is credited as one of the originators of the animated cartoon.  He has worked on comic strips such as Toyland (1900-1902), The Story of the Wooden Babes in the Wonder Woods (1902), Bruno and Pietro (1904-1906), Little Ah Sid, The Chinese Kid (1905-1906), Inquisitive Clarence'(1907-1908), Adventures of a Pair of Jacks (1910), Professor Blackart (1910) and George Herriman's Major Ozone's Fresh Air Crusade and Alexander the Cat (1911).

He took over George Frink's creation Slim Jim'for a short while in 1914.  Also active in animation, he worked for Raoul Barré's studio as an animator and for J.R. Bray's Bray Productions as the director of among others Miss Nanny Goat'(1916-1917).

He contributed to Life and Judge magazines, and was staff artist for the New York Herald, New York World, and Brooklyn Eagle.
