    Virgil Ross - Elmer Fudd, Humphrey Bogart, and Bugs Bunny Illustration (Warner Brothers, c. 1990s). "Now listen, chubby -- you've got just five more minutes to get me my rabbit," says tough guy Humphrey Bogart to waiter Elmer Fudd, in the classic 1947 Merry Melodies short, Slick Hare. This was but one of many Bugs Bunny cartoons animated by Virgil Ross (1907 - 1996), who worked with Tex Avery, Bob Clampett, and the director of Slick Hare, Friz Freleng. Mr. Ross was one of the best at animated dance scenes, and there were several in this short. Ross also worked for Hanna-Barbera and Filmation, and later created a series of "Master Collection" limited edition cels that quickly sold out. He drew this nicely detailed piece on a sheet of 12 field animation paper, with image sizes of 4.5", 7.5", and 7". Fine condition. Signed along the right edge.
