Ghost Fist of a Fox

I really like the brushwork and outlines in this one little scene from “The Loan Stranger” (1942), a Woody Woodpecker short directed by Alex Lovy. The loan company manager takes a swing at Woody’s head but busts a vase that Woody conveniently puts on top of it.

Frank Tipper gets the animation credit.

The fox, by the way, is named Hudson C. Dann. The Hudson was a car. Get it now?


  1. Ben Hardaway should have made his first name 'Ford' -- it wouldn't make the joke any better, but at least contemporary audiences would be able to get it and cringe on their own, without asking for any help.
