Headchopping the Hick

The bad guy who’s after Lem’s girl tries to chop Lem’s head off in “The Hick Chick” (1946). These are five consecutive drawings; the second one is held for two frames and the rest for one.

Lem shouldn’t have escaped the third drawing but anything can happen in a cartoon, as Tex Avery reminded us all once.

The credited animators in this cartoon (not one of my Avery favourites) are Ed Love, Walt Clinton, Preston Blair and Ray Abrams.
