Tex Avery - "Lucky Ducky"

Here's some model sheets from "Lucky Ducky" and a clip to go along with them. The model sheets were drawn by Louis Schmitt who was an animator at Disney throughout the 30's and early 40's before going over to Columbia/Screen Gems. He drew the model sheets for most of Tex's cartoons made in 1948. I love the Duck's smart ass laugh.

Thanks again for those great model sheets.

Avery's staging, especially in this short, is deceptively simple. It's a combination of volumetric and flat elements, ingeniously blended. A great artist makes what he does look easy.
