Tex Avery - "The Hick Chick"
I love this cartoon, but then again I love all of Tex's. I kind of get the feeling this one gets overlooked compared to the attention some of his other shorts receive. I dunno, it cracks me up. Lem is awesome. I love stupid/goofy characters like that. The Daisy Lou design is great too. This model sheet was drawn by Claude Smith and it was probably one of the last he did for Tex, "Northwest Hounded Police" being the other. Notice some of those Lem drawings were used in the original printing of Preston Blair's Animation.
