It’s Hummer Time Backgrounds

The Bob McKimson short “It’s Hummer Time” (Warner Bros., 1950) is known for the somewhat sadistic penalties a cat is forced to pay by a bulldog (“No! Not happy birthday!”). But the cartoon opens with some attractive backgrounds over which the hummer (ie. a hummingbird) swoops.

The hummingbird reads the slogan of Arrid Deodorant.

The bird zooms up to the bird bath. You can see how the animator has stretched him.

Dick Thomas painted the backgrounds from layouts by Cornett Wood.
