    What's Opera, Doc? Elmer Animation Drawing (Warner Brothers, 1957).
    The silhouette of a mighty Viking arouses ferocious lightning storms. It is Elmer Fudd (as the demigod Siegfried). Elmer sings his signature line "Be vewy qwiet, I'm hunting wabbits", before arriving at Bugs Bunny's hole. Bugs watches Elmer fruitlessly jam his spear into the hole to "Kiww the wabbit! Kiww the wabbit! Kiww the wabbit!" Bugs sticks his head out of another rabbit hole, and sings his signature line, "What's up, doc?" This is a terrific rough production sketch of Elmer as a Viking from What's Opera, Doc? Noted in the piece above the character is, "Wabbit". The piece was rendered in graphite with red pencil on 12 field, 3-peghole animation paper. The artwork is in a 19.5" x 16.5" frame with Plexiglas and a mat opening of 13.25" x 10". Frame sold as-is. Included is a screen grab copy. Fine condition.
