    Virgil Ross - Bugs Bunny at the Piano Illustration (Warner Brothers, c. 1990s). Concert master Bugs gives a command performance in this splendid drawing, inspired by the 1946 Merrie Melodies short, Rhapsody Rabbit; that cartoon, directed by Friz Freleng, was one of many that Virgil Ross (1907 - 1996) worked on as an animator. In addition to a long stint at Warners, Mr. Ross worked for several other major studios, including Hanna-Barbera and Filmation (where he worked on the fan-favorite Star Trek animated series). This drawing, created by Mr. Ross in blue pencil and graphite, has a nice large image of Bugs measuring 9". Signed in the lower right corner. Fine condition.
