    Description

    Virgil Ross - Bugs Bunny and French Chef Illustration (Warner Brothers, c. 1991). Bugs turns the tables on a chef who wants to cook him, in this illustration inspired by the 1951 Robert McKimson-directed Merrie Melodies short, French Rarebit. Artist Virgil Ross had a long career at Warner Bros, animating with the Tex Avery, Bob Clampett, and Friz Freleng units, where he worked on many Bugs Bunny cartoons. He also worked at Hanna-Barbera in the 1960s, and Filmation in the '70s, where he animated the Star Trek cartoon series. He was considered one of the best in the business when it came to dance and action sequences, and a master of funny facial expressions. This piece was drawn by Mr. Ross on a sheet of 12 field animation paper, with image sizes of 5.5" and 8". Fine condition. Signed in the lower right.
