Bunnies Abundant (1962)
two (2) original production animation layout drawings
blue and black pencil on two (2) untrimmed animation sheets, image sizes: 5" x 6.25"
These two (2) consecutive animation layout drawings of Loopy de Loop and a rabbit were created by a Hanna-Barbera artist in development of a scene in the animated cartoon. The Loopy de Loop cartoons were the first theatrical releases produced by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera after they left Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and set up their own studio. The series starring the French wolf debuted in 1959 and ran into 1965. In this cartoon the kind-hearted Loopy rescues cute rabbits who are being chased by a gruff and hungry wolf. These drawings were created for scene 14 in which two identical rabbits thank Loopy for his efforts, then are distracted by the wolf barbecuing their cousin Louie. The artist wrote the designations "K-28 cut to Sc 14" and "K-28 Cont Sc 14" in the right margin to indicate the production number and each original's place in the film.
