MGM - "The Hungry Wolf"

"The Hungry Wolf" has some great animation in it, then again most of the MGM shorts from the Harman/Ising period on do. I love the scene when the wolf is chasing the mouse and tearing up the floor. Who incidentally, looks like a precursor to Jerry. Think Joe Barbera worked on this short? I don't know who animated that scene or any other for that matter. My knowledge of the Harman/Ising era is pretty limited and what I did know I have since forgotten. My books have been collecting dust in a box.

Looks a little like Jerry huh?

Chuck Jones - "Scent-Imental Over You"

I realized I rarely post anything by Chuck Jones. What's up with that? Though I don't find all the Pepe Le Pew shorts to be that great I enjoy "Scent-Imental Over You" mostly for the design of the scrawny little thing below.

Popeye Model Sheets

I received the Popeye Volume 3 DVD as a gift and have been enjoying it immensely. I wasn't as familiar with the wartime era shorts so some of the cartoons are new to me. I forgot that I have model sheets that I haven't gotten around to posting. These were sent to me by the Masked Stinker so let's all give him a big thanks for sending them. THANKS! Update: Also, many thanks to Bob Jaques for sending me a much higher quality version of the model sheet below. The copy I had was a tease, you couldn't really make out the details on these great poses.
