Bob McKimson - "One Meat Brawl"

Here's the only appearance of Grover Groundhog voiced by Stan Freberg. I've been watching McKimson shorts a lot lately and having just received the new Looney Tunes set as a gift, I was pleasantly surprised by the short McKimson feature on it.

Merry Christmas

Here's a little Christmas gift for everyone, Tex Avery's "One Ham's Family". I can't recall the last time I saw this one on TV, even when they actually showed classics, so hopefully it's a nice treat for those who haven't seen it in a long time. Sorry the quality isn't that great. I had a bitch of a time encoding if for some reason. The Tom and Jerry pic is from an old cover of Rexall magazine. Happy Holidays!

David Hand - "Ginger Nutt's Christmas Circus"

I'm quite fond of David Hand's Animaland series. While the characters and stories may not be very imaginative, I think they're technically wonderful cartoons. The backgrounds and animation alone make them worth watching, great music score too.

Art Davis - "Odor Of The Day"

This is one of the very few Pepe Le Pew cartoons that I enjoy. Of course he's only really Pepe in that he's a skunk and stinky. Other than that he doesn't exhibit any of Pepe's personality traits. Thank god he's not trying to get laid in this one. That would've made for a pretty creepy cartoon. Oh, like Davis' other shorts there's some pretty cool camera angles and some of the gags are really well timed. Well, I think they are. Sorry for the lack of posts lately, for those who care, it's quite hectic around here during the holidays. So much to do. I'll be sure to post some Christmas themed cartoons over the next week.

Bob Clampett - "Horton Hatches TheEgg"

I love Bob Clampett's take on Dr. Suess' "Horton Hatches The Egg". He stays faithful to the original story and only adds to it whether through song (The Hut-Sut Song) or just funny gags.

Tex Avery - "Bad Luck Blackie"

It's been a while since I posted anything from Tex Avery so here's "Bad Luck Blackie" and some model sheets to go along with it. So many great gags in this one. And who doesn't love the dog's laugh? Enjoy.
