DescriptionVirgil Ross - Bugs Bunny, Evil Scientist, and Gossamer Drawing (Warner Brothers, c. 1990s). "Now be a cooperative little bunny and let me have your brain!" Bugs finds himself up against another evil scientist (this time, modeled after Boris Karloff) and hairy, tennis shoe-wearing monster Gossamer (aka "Rudolf"), in this scene inspired by the 1952 Chuck Jones-directed short, Water, Water Every Hare. This exceptional drawing was created by longtime Warner Brothers animator, Virgil Ross. Mr. Ross was known 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. stores and animation galleries. This signed piece is drawn on 12 field 3-peghole animation paper, with a combined image area of 9." x 10.5". The piece shows minor handling; otherwise condition is Very Good.
