From 1950 we have this classic pairing of Daffy Duck and Porky Pig in Boobs In The Woods. This Looney Tune was directed by Robert McKimson and written by Warren Foster.
An early Looney Tune, Bosko In Dutch is generally unremarkable in its story telling, animation or direction. However, the short is important because this was the first cartoon that one of the greatest cartoon directors ever supervised– albeit uncredited.
One of the classic Bugs Bunny cartoons, Gorilla My Dreams was also one of director Robert McKimson’s finest. Known mainly for creating the Tasmanian Devil and Foghorn Leghorn, McKimson made a few classic Bugs films, too, including this one.
Isadore Freleng directed many great films, and paired two timeless characters so close they are now inseparable– Tweety and Sylvester. Dog Pounded is one of the later shorts, produced in 1954. It begins with the very familiar image of a starving Sylvester, rummaging through garbage cans for food…
Released sixty-five years ago today, Daffy Duck took a Mexican Joyride down to Tijuana for a little bit of rest and relaxation. Directed by Art Davis, we can never resist picking a Davis cartoon for CotD, even up against Arthur And The Invisibles and Jet Fuel Formula, the very first episode of Rocky and His Friends.
Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and Yosemite Sam look to be back in action, or at least headed back to the big screen. Warner Bros. has announced that they plan to reboot the classic cartoon short characters into an as-yet untitled new hybrid live-action/CG film.
#CotD: The first of three cartoons in which Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck debate whether it is rabbit season or duck season was “Rabbit Fire” by Chuck Jones.
#CotD: The first cartoon to pit Bugs Bunny against Yosemite Sam as a pirate was “Buccaneer Bunny”.
CotD: The very first Warner Brothers theatrical cartoon, “Sinkin’ In The Bathtub” also saw the screen appearance of Bosko and Honey.
CotD: Marvin the Martian takes on Bugs Bunny in “Hare-Way To The Stars, and the universe will never be quite the same again.
CotD: One of Daffy’s greatest starring roles, “The Scarlet Pumpernickel” has our favorite duck at his ego-maniacal height.
CotD: Rarest of the rare, a leap year cartoon is hard to find. But we do have “Boom Boom” a Looney Tunes short from 1936.
CotD: An early Porky short, “Picador Porky” is Mel Blanc’s first appearance in a Warner Bros. short.
