In the 1950's, he directed TV commercials, returning to animation in the 60's, working at Warner Brothers and for DePatie/Freleng on Pink Panther cartoons.
Prolific English-born animator and animation director, best remembered for his work on early black & white Looney Tunes cartoons (especially Porky Pig) under the auspices of Frank Tashlin and, later, Bob Clampett. Since he never made any color cartoons for Warner Brothers, his work has been overshadowed by many of his fellow animators at the studio.
From 1943, McCabe helped to make training films for the First Motion Picture Unit of the Army Air Corps, under the command of Major Rudolf Ising.
