“Mm-mmm! I can taste that fried rabbit now,” says the hunter (played by Patrick McGeehan). The Disney-esque rabbit in question overhears the culinary prediction. Here’s the shock take.
The cartoon is Tex Avery’s “Doggone Tired” (1949), which consists mainly of gags of the rabbit trying to keep a hunting dog awake all night. There are several shudder-fear drawings in this scene. Here’s one.
Bobe Cannon, Walt Clinton, Grant Simmons and Mike Lah are the credited animators. Avery used both Rich Hogan and Jack Cosgriff as gagmen in this one.
