    Virgil Ross - Daffy Duck and Bugs Bunny Drawing (Warner Brothers, c. 1990s). "Girls, you better hold on to your boyfriends!" Daffy's attempts to one-up Bugs has him doing the trick he can only do once (namely, blow himself up), in this scene inspired by the 1957 Looney Tunes short, Show Biz Bugs. Virgil Ross was one of the main animators on this Friz Freleng-directed cartoon that served as the inspiration for the classic "This Is It" opening for The Bugs Bunny Show, seen on Saturday morning TV for years. Virgil Ross was for many years one of the animators in Freleng's unit at Warner Brothers. His long, distinguished career also included stints with Walter Lantz (in the 1930s), Filmation (Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids, The Archie Show, Star Trek: The Animated Series), DePatie-Freleng (The All-New Pink Panther Show, The Fantastic Four), Hanna-Barbera (The Flintstones, The Smurfs), and more. In 1988, Mr. Ross was given the prestigious Winsor McCay Award. This is an original signed drawing by Virgil Ross on 12 field animation paper, with image sizes of 7" and 7.75". Fine condition.
