    Knighty Knight Bugs Bugs Bunny and Award Animation Drawing (Warner Brothers, 1959). The 1959 Friz Freleng-directed short Knighty Knight Bugs was the only Bugs Bunny cartoon to win an Academy Award. This is a rough sketch of Bugs in his tux, holding a special award that is part carrot, part sword, and includes a "W" for Warner Brothers. The art is in graphite and blue pencil on 16 field animation paper trimmed to 10" x 14", with three pegholes still intact on the bottom. Bugs is a huge 13". This appears to have come from the Chuck Jones unit, paying homage to Friz, and was possibly designed for a trade or in-house company ad. The art is matted to an overall size of 13" x 19"; both the mat and the paper have been sun-struck, which has darkened the paper and faded the mat. Otherwise, the art is Fine.
