Big Bad Week- Act II
This is another of my favorite stories with the Big Bad Wolf, expecially because it includes cameos from some beloved minor Disney cartoons stars, one of them acting Henery Hawk-like!
Enjoy it, right from the first issue of "Vacation Parade" (the one with the longest Barks' story ever!)and from the talent of Gil Turner!

Big Bad Week- Act I
I hope you'll enjoy an entire week of this blog devoted to the Big Bad Wolf, our Zeke Wolf. His comicbook series has always been a favorite of mine and it was about time to share some of his best stories with you.
We start with a sunday pages continuity from 1936, drawn by Al Taliaferro, courtesy of my friend Klaus Harms.

I sure love the character of Elmer Fudd and many of my favorite cartoons feature him against Bugs, but I'm also fond of the Bugs vs Sam shorts, with "Hare Trimmed" being one I love to re-watch the most. The timing, as usual for a Freleng cartoon, is superb!

"Tree for Two"
Another Sylvester's fine hour, "Tree for Two" is a perfectly timed Freleng effort, with the "Charleston" sequence being my favorite thanks to Blanc's vocal abilities.
Spike and Chester will return, as Alf and Chester, in "Dr. Jerkyll's Hyde", a short that suffers a bit, in my opinion, for the cockney voices given to the two canine characters.

"A Mouse Divided"
It's about time to post one of my favorite WB shorts. I'm quite fond of Sylvester's solo shorts and, more in general, of WB's 1948-1953 output, where even the animation in Freleng's and McKimson's units was extremely enjoable.
I sure hope this classic, and a few other favorites of mine of the same period, to be soon available on official dvd releases (A "Sylvester and Twety" two-disc set would be a good idea IMHO).
In the meantime....
