Pompano’s Potpourri: Sunday Funnies

 20 replies

A great trilogy. Everybody knows Chuck Jones, but writer Michael Maltese deserves equal credit (he also wrote What’s Opera Doc? which is widely regarded by industry professionals as the best animated short of all time).

I did not know that this was the first cartoon to feature a feud between Bugs and Daffy. It’s also marks Daffy’s personality shift away from screwball to vain and greedy.

Pronoun trouble.

Animation historian David Gerstein writes, “Duck! Rabbit, Duck! succeeds because the exaggeration of the villain role blends perfectly with the cartoon’s exaggeration of Bugs, its exaggeration of Elmer — and its exaggeration of logic. Duck! Rabbit, Duck! is a cartoon that derives its entire mood from pushing gags past conventional Looney Tunes limits.”

Seems fitting.

That’s all folks, your turn.

Watching The Replacements. If Snyder has any sense of humor at all he would name his team the Sentinels. JMO. ?

Jack white showed him making an electric at the beginning of one of his interviews. The pickup was where they had a lot of issues in the early days.
