Three of the biggest stars of Warner Brothers Animation, Porky Pig, Bugs Bunny, and Daffy Duck, are here to entertain you in this wonderful original drawing, based on the opening to the long-running Saturday Morning series, The Bugs Bunny Show. Artist Virgil Ross (1907-1996) was a long-time Warner Brothers animator who worked in the Bob Clampett, Tex Avery, and Friz Freleng Units. He was famous for his action and dance sequences, as well as his facial expressions. He worked on three Looney Tunes shorts that received Academy Award nominations -- Tweety Pie, Birds Anonymous and Knighty Knight Bugs. Mr. Ross began releasing hand-painted Limited Edition cels of progressions of his famous Looney Tunes scenes as part of the "Masters Collection" for the Warner Brothers Studio Stores and animation galleries. He began making personal appearances where he sold drawings of the Looney Tunes characters as well as other cartoons he worked on for other studios. He received the prestigious Winsor McCay Award in 1988. This rendering measures 7.5" x 10.5" on 12 field 3-peghole paper and hand signed by Virgil Ross in the lower right. Minor handling; otherwise, condition is Very Good.
