    Tortoise Wins by a Hare Bugs Bunny Animation Drawing (Warner Brothers, 1943). This was the second of three Bugs Vs. Cecil Turtle cartoons. As it opens Bugs is watching a film of their first race and gets so upset he kicks over the movie projector and begins to rant. This drawing is from that scene around the 1:46 mark in this Bob Clampett-directed Merry Melodies short. This large and expressive full-figure graphite rendering of Bugs measures 7.5" x 4.5" on 12 field 2-peghole paper, and is numbered 30 in the lower right corner. Original Warner Brothers production art from the early '40s is extremely rare. The paper shows tanning, edge wear and a light water stain in the upper right corner. Condition is Very Good.
