UPA - "The Miner's Daughter"

I love the animation in this Bob Canon directed short. I'm still trying to pick out Pat Matthews animation. There's a great run cycle with the miner's daughter that is very similar to one Cannon animated in "Out-Foxed" when he worked under Tex Avery briefly.

Quick Draw McGraw - "Chopping Spree"

Here's a real funny Quick Draw short written by Mike Maltese. As much as love early Hanna-Barbera, not very many make me laugh out loud. This one is an exception. The villian kind reminds me of Wilbur Cobb from Ren and Stimpy. Of course Cobb's design is much funnier. For all things H-B be sure to go to Yowp's blog. It's the ginchiest. For some reason the sound goes out of sync towards the end. I've uploaded it twice and it keeps doing it. I guess when it gets re-encoded something goes wrong. Oh well.
