Next Event, Baseball

Here are frames from a 10-second gag from “The Chump Champ” (1950), one of Tex Avery’s Droopy-vs-Spike blackout shorts.

The game is baseball. Pitcher Spike paints a bomb as a baseball and throws it. He doesn’t count on Droopy smacking it on a line-drive right back to him. Explosion. On to the next gag.

If I had to guess, I’d say this was a Mike Lah scene. Walt Clinton and Grant Simmons also animated on this from a story by Rich Hogan.
