Looney Tunes – 1961 Bugs Bunny Model Sheet

This is currently on Ebay.

MGM – Droopy – Dumb Hounded

I have posted a few cartoon posters that I have thought were really fun and quite arty, but here is one that is not so good. MGM cartoons of the 40s were second only to Warner’s but their publicity art was not of the same quality as the cartoons.

Droopy looks positively creepy in the above picture. Worse still is that some of the other cartoons’ posters look much worse. Still, it is a great cartoon directed by Tex Avery.

Disney – Clara Cluck Model Sheet – Mickey’s Amateurs

This model sheet of little known Clara Cluck is up for auction on Ebay. It looks very nice and the seller says that it is from 1937s animated short Mickey’s Amateurs. For $40 it looks very good.

Disney – Donald Duck – Der Fuehrer’s Face

If you ever wondered what would happen to Donald Duck if he was living in Nazi Germany, you really should see the Academy Award winning cartoon Der Fuehrer’s Face.197871_1020_a

Popeye The Sailor Meets Ali Baba’s Forty Thieves

I really like lookin’ at these old cartoon posters. They are a great piece of animation art and replicas can be bought quite easily form e-stores such as Moviegoods. Here are two different posters that were used for Popeye The Sailor Meets Ali Baba’s Forty Thieves.198003_1020_a143501_1020_a

MGM – Barney Bear – The Flying Bear

Here’s a cel that’s up for sale at the Van Eaton gallery of Barney Bear, a much overlooked character from the 1940s MGM cartoons.


The cel is from the wartime cartoon The Flying Bear. Even though Barney does not get the kudos of the more famous MGM characters Tom & Jerry or Droopy but I still like his cartoons. Barney made a few war themed cartoons such as The Flying Bear, The Rookie Bear and Bear Raid Warden. They have not been officially released on DVD but can be found as extras on some classic MGM movies released by Warner Bros.

Looney Tunes – Bugs Bunny Gets The Boid

Here’s a fun poster for the Bob Clampett cartoon, Bugs Bunny Gets The Boid.
ps431I like how dopey Beaky Buzzard looks. It’s amazing how much personality can be displayed in a still drawing like this one.
