    Description

    Virgil Ross - Yosemite Sam and Bugs Bunny Illustration (Warner Brothers, c. 1990s). Sea-Goin' Sam, the "blood-thirstiest, shoot-'em-first-iest, doggone worst-iest buccaneer" matches wits (?) with Bugs in this drawing, inspired by the 1948 Friz Freleng Looney Tunes short, Buccaneer Bunny. This Bugs Bunny cartoon was one of many animated by the great Virgil Ross (1907 - 1996), during his long tenure with Warners, where he worked with Tex Avery and Bob Clampett in addition to Freleng. Mr. Ross also worked on various Hanna-Barbera TV series like The Flintstones, and on the animated version of Star Trek for Filmation. His awards include the prestigious Winsor McCay Award, given to him in 1988. He drew this piece on a sheet of 12 field animation paper, with image sizes of 4.5". Fine condition. Signed.
