It Won't Stay Buried!

Mike Lah animates a nice little scene in Garden Gopher (1950) when Spike tries to bury a bone, but the title character keeps pushing it back to the surface from his home underneath. Finally, he jumps on top of the bone to push it down. The unseen gopher pulls it down and Spike smashes onto the ground. Here are some of the drawings.

I wish I knew who the assistants were in Tex Avery’s unit at the time; Bill Higgins might have been one. Walt Clinton and Grant Simmons also animated on this cartoon.
