    Description

    Virgil Ross - Bugs Bunny and Yosemite Sam Pan Illustration (Warner Brothers, c. 1990s). Yosemite Sam, the "meanest, toughest, rip-roarin'-est, Edward Everett Horton-est hombre what ever packed a six-shooter" meets his match in Bugs Bunny (who carries a seven-shooter), in the 1945 Friz Freleng-directed short, Hare Trigger. Here they are in a tense face-off, in this specialty illustration. Virgil Ross was one of the animators on this great cartoon; he was a long-serving member of Freleng's animation unit at Warners. In addition to his 30 years of animating Bugs Bunny and others for Looney Tunes shorts, Mr. Ross spent time with countless classic cartoon characters, including Oswald the Rabbit, Woody Woodpecker, Scooby-Doo, Batman, Mighty Mouse, even Fritz the Cat! The award-winning artist made personal appearances at Warner Brothers Studio Stores, where he offered drawings like this. Figure sizes (including hats) ranges from 6.5" to 7.5" on this 24" x 10.5" animation sheet. Minor handling wear; Very Good condition.
