    To Hare is Human Wile E. Coyote Animation Drawing Signed by Chuck Jones (Warner Brothers, 1956). "Wile E. Coyote, Genius -- Have Brain Will Travel" reads Wile E.'s business card, in this Bugs Bunny Merrie Melodies short directed by Animation Legend Chuck Jones (1912 – 2002). In this original 12 field 3-peghole rough animation drawing, the hungry coyote is trying to pull Bugs from his rabbit hole with a bathroom plunger, using advice gleaned from his UNIVAC computer. Apparently, the UNIVAC never encountered tricky Bugs, who out-maneuvers Wile E. every time. See this at the 4:40 mark in online viewings. Art is in graphite and red pencil; Wile E. has a figure size of 5". The drawing is numbered 2 in the lower right corner. Mr. Jones signed the drawing with an inscription, dated 1981. An original Wile E. Coyote animation production drawing from the Golden Age of Animation, signed by Chuck Jones? What's not to like here? Very minor handling wear. Fine condition.
