Zcaring the Zebra

A string of fear gags greets viewers in Slap Happy Lion every time a fierce jungle lion roars. In one, a zebra calmly munching on the African veld becomes so frightened, it jumps out of its stripes and runs away. The stripes follow.

See how Avery’s animator turns the lower half of the zebra’s body, then the upper half before running into the distance. These three frames are consecutive.

Tex loved to have a tongue sticking straight out in fear drawings.

Now the zebra turns the upper half of the body. The two drawings below are consecutive.

Now the stripes.

Bob Bentley, Ray Abrams and Walt Clinton are the animators in this cartoon.
