    Description

    Napoleon Bunny-Part Production Background by Irv Wyner (Warner Brothers, 1956). The hand-painted backgrounds in many of our favorite cartoons are actually wonderful pieces of art in and of themselves. This one by Irv Wyner (1904-2002) is simply gorgeous. The tiled floor and tall windows give a great sense of depth to it. This is from the Friz Freleng directed short that saw Bugs Bunny face off against Napoleon Bonaparte. Tunneling (and getting lost), Bugs finds himself in France at the "Headquartiers Du Napoleon." Animators on this short included Virgil Ross and Art Davis. This background is labeled "Napoleon Bunny-Part, 1956" and "BG" in the top edges, and signed by Wyner in the bottom left. It measures 16.5" x 10" and is in Fine condition.
