Eating a Drawing

Billy Boy eats the very paper he’s drawn on in his only cartoon.

Of course, the drawings are actually on cels, but the audience doesn’t know.

Ray Patterson, Mike Lah, Walt Clinton, Grant Simmons and Bob Bentley are the animators. Ed Benedict designed the wolf flat while the cutsy goat isn’t.


  1. Literally "chewing the scenery".

  2. How many theatrical shorts featuring the "southern" wolf, voiced by Daws Butler, were produced? He is by far one of my all time top cartoon characters.

  3. The Three Little Pups, Blackboard Jumble and Sheep Wrecked are the others I can think of, John.
