Through the Eyes of a Parrot

Here’s a look at Don Williams’ multiple eyes in “Dough Ray Meow,” from the Art Davis unit at Warners.

Emery Hawkins, Basil Davidovich and Bill Melendez were also credited with animation in this one. Unfortunately, studios weren’t raking in money from cartoons in the late ‘40s and the Davis unit was a casualty. When the unit died, so did Williams’ career at Warners. He resurfaced on a freelance basis at Hanna-Barbera in 1959 before moving on to DePatie-Freleng a few years later.
