Gruesome Collision

Bob Clampett’s best cartoons have some outrageous animation that looks every more outrageous if you stop and admire each drawing.

In an incredibly ridiculous premise in “A Gruesome Twosome,” two cats in a suddenly-rubbery old vaudeville horse outfit get wrapped around a tree. Here are just some of the drawings. Note the white in the impact drawing.

There a bunch of drawings in perspective in the scene, with body parts poking near the camera. Another great bit of work is when the “horse” lands on the ground. See how a foot is in perspective. And look at the multiples and the swirls. Just fun stuff to look at.

Manny Gould, Rod Scribner, Bob McKimson and Basil Davidovich are the credited animators.
