    Description

    Wabbit Twouble Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd Animation Drawing (Warner Brothers, 1941). "Say, you had a close call, doc!" says Bugs Bunny to Elmer Fudd after almost causing him to fall down the canyon. "Yeah, someone must have twicked me!" Yes, Elmer, you've been "twicked" alright! As Bugs says, "I do this kind of stuff to him all through the picture!" Here's a very rare original 12 field 2-peghole animation drawing of Bugs and Elmer in this scene, from the classic Bob Clampett-directed Merry Melodies short (his first with Bugs and the former "Egghead," Elmer) released on 12/20/1941, just a few days after the attack on Pearl Harbor that brought the US into World War II. This sequence begins with Elmer washing his face; he reaches for a towel he had hung on a branch, but the branch (held by Bugs) keeps moving out of his way until Elmer finds himself suspended in air! This sequence begins at the 4:18 mark, and the image on this drawing can be found at 5:08. The drawing has a few color call-outs, and is noted as 62 in the lower right corner. The paper is in Fair condition with handling wear, corner creases, missing paper in the upper left (well away from the image), an edge tear, and small stains. The image is in Very Good condition.
