You Moved, Didn't You?

“Dumb-Hounded” (1943) is littered with the shock-takes that Tex Avery became known for. Takes build upon takes. Here’s how Avery gets from one surprise drawing of the wolf to the next one. Two in-betweens featuring brush strokes.

The final drawing is left to establish by being exposed on seven frames, then Avery moves the wolf around some more.

Here’s a fun in-between drawing that shows up for one frame.

No animators are credited, though I understand they are Irv Spence, Preston Blair, Ray Abrams and Ed Love.
