To my hero John K !

On his terrific blog, my hero John K asked me if I could " do a pile of Frame blowups of Daffy from "Great Piggy Bank Robbery" saying' "What'll I do? It looks like a Piggy Bank crime wave!I'll call that detec-i-tive, Duck Twacy! "
All the crazy close up Scribner drawings!"

And I did it! Enjoy!

Yours Truly,

Duck Dodgers

How the hell did those guys accomplish that? How can a character move so much and talk at the same time? Did they plan the lipsync and posing separately and then merged them only in the last moment? Another scene that always impressed me was Daffy talking to himself after reading the comic (the speech which culminates with him punching himself). If you analyze the individual frames it's even hard to see that he is actually talking during the whole action, yet when it's played at the correct speed everything fits together. I wonder how much experimentation was needed to perfect that. It's a pity modern cartoons don't do that.
The last amazing 'talking while doing tons of stuff' cartoon I watched was actually spumco's The Best Son. For some reason most people don't seem to be aware it even exists, but it's one of the best flash stuff i ever watched.

That's sweet. I make my browser window small enough for one frame, and then scroll it down, that seems to work pretty good.

I always enjoy that scene. I get a rush of inspiration, entertainment, and creativity instantly and simultaneously from that moment in that amazing animated short. Thanks for posting it!

xclnt screenshots, if i focus one part of screen while I scroll I can animate the sequence back and forth or forwards and back if you like. If you got a really good slo-mo feature on your DVD, watching all the different poses work together is awesome.

just incredible. seeing work of this quality up close just pisses you off over all the "ani-ma-shun" dreck foisted on the world since. either the drawing or the direction would be seminal. the combination is just freakin' genius.
