    Virgil Ross - Bugs Bunny and Cecil Turtle Sequenced Pan Drawing Original Art (Warner Brothers, c. 1990s).
    Cecil Turtle consistently mystifies Bugs during their race by always appearing ahead of him, in this original sequenced pan drawing inspired by the 1947 Friz Freleng-directed short, Rabbit Transit. The art is by a man who worked on that cartoon, long-time WB animator Virgil Ross (1907 - 1996). Mr. Ross was famous for his action and dance sequences, as well as his funny facial expressions. Several of the cartoons he worked on were nominated for Academy Awards, and Mr. Ross himself was given the prestigious Winsor McCay Award in 1988. He spent time at several other studios, most notably Hanna-Barbera and Filmation. Mr. Ross began releasing hand-painted Limited Edition cels of his famous Looney Tunes scenes as part of the "Master's Collection" cels sold at Warner Bros. Studio Stores and animation galleries. This signed piece is drawn on animation paper measuring 24.75" x 9.5", with image sizes ranging from 2" to 6". Fine condition.
