    Bugs Bunny and the Three Bears Bugs Bunny Animation Drawing (Warner Brothers, 1944). "Now I think I'll get myself some shut-eye" says Bugs Bunny after he eats the Three Bears' carrot soup, rests on them as they hide on the floor (they were waiting for Goldilocks), and then heads up to their beds for some sleep. This is an outstanding original 12 field animation drawing of Bugs Bunny when he is sleeping on the "hiding" bears -- bad-tempered Papa Henry, love-struck Mama ("Tell me more about my eyes!"), and dim-witted Junior. This is from the very first Chuck Jones directed "Three Bears" cartoon that was released on 2/26/44. He would go on to make five more. This image of Bugs can be seen at the 3:42 mark into the short. Graphite full-figure image of 6" on 2-peghole animation paper. Vintage Bugs Bunny drawings of this era is considered very rare. Minor handling and edge wear. In Very Good condition.
