Ace in the Hole Backgrounds

The drabness of military camouflage has been captured nicely in background art in the Woody Woodpecker air force base cartoon “Ace in the Hole” (1942).

Fred Brunish was at Lantz at the time, but I couldn’t tell you if this is his work. I think it’s safe to assume Lantz had more than one background artist at the time.

George Dane (né George Jorgensen) receives the sole animation credit. Voices are provided by Kent Rogers who, ironically, died in an air force training exercise during the war.

  1. Seeing the background of the plane control panel, I remember Woody saying: "My mom asked to choose this one from here!"
