Native Texan and LK idol, Tex Avery, came from that group of true artists, the classic animators of the thirties and forties. You know how they name American submarines by class? Like a Virginia class sub, Los Angeles Class….Ohio Class, etc.
Well, here in Laurieland of you’re one of those gifted artists from back in the day, you’re “Tex Avery Class”.
Bob Clampett (Cecil the Seasick Sea Serpent), Friz Freling , and of course, the brilliant Chuck Jones were all “Tex Avery Class”…all from that gifted MGM and Warner Brothers stable of animators.
Chuck Jones was devastatingly talented, but I love Tex Avery’s style and sense of humor.
I saw this cartoon, “Bad Luck Blackie” first about 15 years ago and found it to be laugh out loud comical. I still do.
It’s from a time and a place where hand-drawn pain, violence and 1940’s ethnocentric political incorrectness was just so damn funny!
Sorry if this offends, but it’s still funny.
Get over it.
Oh yeah…watch how the dog runs at the very end of this cartoon. Notice the position of his two hind feet and back in a couple of frames. Additionally, notice the subtle nuances in facial expression, paw positions….every thing.
