    Virgil Ross - Daffy Duck as a Doctor Illustration (Warner Brothers, c. 1990s). "Is there a doctor in the house?" Dr. Daffy will see you now! Animation legend Virgil Ross (1907 - 1996) treats us to a great image of that screwball duck in medical garb. Daffy first appeared as a doctor in the 1938 Looney Tunes short, The Daffy Doc. Mr. Ross animated over 200 cartoons while at Warner Brothers for directors Tex Avery, Bob Clampett, and (most especially) Friz Freleng. Later, he went on to projects at Hanna-Barbera and Filmation. Three of the cartoons he worked on won Oscars, and Mr. Ross himself received two prestigious awards, including the coveted Winsor McCay award in 1988. He drew this piece on a sheet of 12 field animation paper, with a image size of 9". Fine condition. Signed in the lower right.
