Wacky Bwush

An unsung hero (or heroine) in Bob Clampett’s The Wacky Wabbit (1942) is responsible for the dry brush work during the cartoon.

Here are some frames from the climax when Elmer Fudd is wrestling Bugs Bunny for his gold tooth.

I don’t know how this works but I presume an animator indicated some movement and someone in the ink and paint department supplied the finished product.

Sid Sutherland is the credited animator, with Warren Foster getting the story credit.


  1. In #5 & #7 it looks like a mask of some kind was used to get that sharp edge to the dry brush swipes.

    The logistics that must have gone into those "brush" scene are awe-inspiring.
