"Wacky Blackouts"

Enjoy this series of screenshots from a terrific copy of "Wacky Blackouts", a Bob Clampett WW2 cartoon. I love the facial expressions of the Mortimer Snerd-like dog as well as of the turtle and the insects.

To Reg Hartt: kid, relax. In the previous shot the cat just swallowed the li'l woodpecker, 'k?

I haven't seen this cartoon in my life, but boy! Did Bob ever went all-out with the details! Quite surprised at how many wrinkles that cat's got!

Man, congrats for this blog! It really is fantastic! I am a huge cartoon lover, although I didn't exist when this cartoon was made, but still, it is wonderful you have these images. I grew up on Cartoon Network, but not even CN is the same as it was about 10 years ago.

This is a pretty lame cartoon, but the great animation by McKimson, Ross, and Scribner makes it fun to watch.

Looks like Scribner animated that goofy dog.

Is this one of those cartoons started by Avery and finished by Clampett? Some of the drawings remind me of Clampett's black and white Porky cartoons, but others remind me of Avery's color cartoons of the early forties.

this cartoons was directed by Clampett. When it was made Avery was already working at MGM.
