Blog Plug!

David Gerstein has a new blog! Who is David Gerstein you ask? He is an animation historian, and he just made an incredible discovery! For years people have believed the cartoon "Hare-um Scare-um" ended with a family of rabbits beating up the hunter, and his head and his dog's heads are seen rolling down the hill into the iris-out.

David's post shows that while the rabbits DO beat up the hunter, the gag that follows afterward is anything but "heads rolling down the hill", but David does bring up an interesting theory on how that urban legend got started.

The coolest part about the post is he designed it "Snopes" style.

Hey, Barbara Mikkelson! Add this dude's work to your website! Um... with his permission of coarse.

Daffy Duck Goes Animal Quackers

Matthew Hunter, one of the owners of he Mice-Looney-ous Blog has recently been posting his old Looney Tunes collection of toys and memorabila, so I thought I'd do the same thing. Because I'm a sheep...

In this story, Daffy Duck wants to go to the zoo and paint pictures of the animals, but a sudden rainfall causes him to change plans. For whatever reason, Daffy decides to go to the zoo and paint the animals themselves! Screw authority!

As you may have guessed from the above "page", the story is told in rhyme (and oddly enough, when I was a little kid I never noticed this), but it is a unique story, with some funny illustratons, such as Daffy painting a group of zebras in plaid, and an elephant into an apple tree, and an intresting ending where the rain washes the paint off the animals and forms a rainbow by the zoo's exit.

This book was made by "Brad Gilchrist" (LOL) and he apparently made two other Looney Tunes books, one starring Porky Pig, the other Bugs Bunny.

So anyway, I just thought I'd dig this litte LT childhood memoryandshare it with my two readers. Yes, my blog only has two readers. They know who they are.

Hi, Kelly! Hi, Corrissa!
