Dog Skid Stop

Was Tedd Pierce on a bender when he came up with this story idea? A father possum dresses up in an ill-fitting dog costume to try to scare his son into staying awake in Sleepy Time Possum (released 1950).

Dad skids to a stop, looks around, then comes the take.



Bob McKimson’s animation crew in this cartoon was John Carey, Emery Hawkins, Rod Scribner, Chuck McKimson and Phil De Lara.
