"A Hick, A Slick And A Chick"
Art Davis directed a handful of great shorts from 1946 to 1949 after taking the director's spot vacated when Bob Clampett left Warners. He had a great unit, with Emery Hawkins and Bill Melendez animating for him. I also love Art's animation too, particularly in Frank Tashlin's cartoons. Here's "A Hick, a slick and a chick" from 1948 and a model sheet of Elmo. It would be nice to see an Art Davis only disc on one of the Golden Collections sets. Enjoy! (especially you, Severin)
