Random Bit of Looney! Day 3: I. "Fritz" Freleng

Fritz Freleng is one of the most versatile of the Termite Terrace animators with work dating as far back as Disney's Oswald the Lucky Rabbit and as iconic as Sylvester and Tweety, Speedy Gonzalez, Yosemite Sam, and the Pink Panther. Even Cheeto's very own Chester Cheetah came from Freleng's personal animation studio which was in business from 1967 to 1980 when it was bought by Marvel and became Marvel Productions which would go on to further greatness with such cartoons as Transformers, G.I.Joe, and Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends.

Anyway, the cartoon below features one of the greatest rivalries in cartoons, that of Bugs Bunny and Yosemite Sam.   Freleng was master of comedic timing and it shows in this cartoon.  Enjoy!
