    Rabbit Seasoning Title Layout/Concept Painting (Warner Brothers, 1952). Rabbit Seasoning was the second entry in the "Bugs/Daffy Hunting Trilogy," directed by Chuck Jones and written by Michael Maltese. It was released to theaters on 9/20/52, with Spring as the setting (the other two shorts in the series feature Autumn and Winter). This is the original Title layout/concept painting by noted WB background artist Maurice Noble, who also signed the piece along the lower right border. The art is in gouache on paper, with an image area measuring 5.5" x 4" and matted with an opening of 9.5" x 8.5". It's nicely framed with Plexiglas, for an overall size of 18.75" x 17.25". The short comes in at #30 in Jerry Beck's 50 Greatest Cartoons book. Fine condition. And remember, he DOES have to shoot me now!
