I don't know if you guys noticed this or not, but for those of you who've seen the classic Jack Lemmon movie "Days Of Wine & Roses", there's a scene where his character's wife is watching the Chuck Jones Three Bears cartoon "A Bear For Punishment" on B&W TV. My question is was this the first time t...

Interesting how Rich Hogan and John D Johnsen are on the list but Tex isn't... I had thought they went with Tex to MGM. Hogan definitely went with Avery to MGM, since he gets credit on Tex's initial pictures. But City Directory listings can be slow at times updating job listings, since they rely on...

If you mean his name, Tashlin had a lot of his color cartoons BRed, while his later ones that avoided that fate never carried his name to begin with, because they were released after he left Warner's for the final time (over half of his first directorial term at WB also were in the B&W Looney Tunes,...

Somehow, I don't think we'll be getting an instrumental version of the Bugs Bunny Show for quite some time to come. :( You'd have to have the audio still in the Warner's vault, or split tracks for the voices/naaration from this commercial http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ry1LuwZ5lSY , where you could...

In case there were witnesses to his murder attempts, they'd never pin them on him because they'd never recognize Lawyer Goodwill as the culprit. (Of course, we're dealing with a fourth-wall-breaking character who's aware the audience is watching him constantly, so what do I know?) Yea, the guy in t...

It also shows up in a drawing on page 264 of Chuck Reducks in a page on Snafu, but in looking at it again, I don't know if it's an old drawing or he did it for the book. F. Fox Since we're digging up a 2008 post, Fibber's also added this since then at his website -- on the Burns & Allen connection ...

Scott went on to co-create and voice Bullwinkle, and Turner went on to write live-action sitcom scripts. Turner worked with Scott again on Rocky & Bullwinkle in 1960-61, and again with Ward's "Fractured Flickers" and later on "George of the Jungle" (and if you want to really stretch it, working wit...

That may be true for Mickey Mouse, but Donald Duck and Goofy weren't hampered by parental concern. (Probably why the funnier Disney cartoons star the two latter characters.) Mickey became an "aw, shucks" everyman in his cartoons, but Donald was allowed to be a jerk. Part of the reason some of these...
