    Virgil Ross - Yosemite Sam and Bugs Bunny Pan Illustration (Warner Brothers, c. 1990s). Bugs tricks Sam into doing the "Mine Shaft Shuffle," in this great pan drawing inspired by the Friz Freleng-directed short, Bugs Bunny Rides Again (1948). Nobody did a better animated dance sequence than Virgil Ross, who worked on this short as part of the Freleng Unit at the "Termite Terrace" studio. Mr. Ross also worked with Tex Avery and Robert Clampett at Warners, and spent time at several other well-known studios; some of the characters he worked on include Pink Panther, Archie, Aquaman, Chilly Willy, Winnie the Pooh, The Smurfs, and Scooby-Doo, to name just a few. While making personal appearances to promote his own line of Limited Edition cels, Mr. Ross also offered drawings like this. Figure sizes range from 6.5" to 8" for Sam (including his oversized hat); Bugs stands at 7.5", all on a 33" x 13.5" sheet of animation paper. Minor handling wear; Very Good condition.
