Watch Out For That Kiss

Bobby-soxers love Frankie, whether they’re hens (“Swooner Crooner,” Warner Bros., 1944) or rabbits (“Little ‘Tinker,” MGM, 1948).

Here’s one rabbit blowing kisses at the ersatz Frank Sinatra and the skunk dodging them. I like the little addition of the final, huge kiss dripping down the stage curtain.



The credited animators in this charmer from Tex Avery are Bill Shull, Grant Simmons, Walt Clinton and Bob Bentley. Louie Schmitt designed the characters.

  1. This is perhaps the best example of a "topper" I can think of in an Avery cartoon. The timing, music and sound effects are all perfect, as they are throughout this scene.
