    Knighty Knight Bugs Production Background (Warner Brothers, 1958). "So this is the Singing Sword" says Bugs Bunny, in this Friz Freleng-directed short which was the first starring Bugs Bunny to win an Academy Award. It featured Bugs Bunny as the King's court jester, Sam as the Black Knight and Sam's fire-breathing dragon who had a cold. The backgrounds for this cartoon were painted by Tom O'Loughlin and this is a very rare hand-painted production background from this landmark film. It's from the initial chase scene between Bugs and Sam. The trimmed background measures 10.5" x 12", mounted to backing board, and is marked 1483 in the top right border and SC 30 in top left. The piece shows minor handling wear; otherwise condition is Very Good.
