Long Pan to Bugs

You’ll have to click on this great background drawing by Irv Wyner to enlarge it. It’s the opening shot of the Bugs Bunny cartoon “A Star is Bored” (1956).



Milt Franklyn’s elegant opening theme accompanying the pan over the shot stitches together “You Ought to be in Pictures” and “Hooray For Hollywood.”

  1. Milt Franklyn’s elegant opening theme accompanying the pan over the shot stitches together “You Ought to be in Pictures” and “Hooray For Hollywood.”

    As they say (sing) in “Hooray for Hollywood”:

    “Where any office boy or young mechanic
    Can be a panic, with just a good-looking pan”

    As that, Mr. Freleng, was a “good-looking pan”!

    "You're wonderful to see."
