Bugs Bunny Rides Again - funny animation

OK, since we already have about 150 blog posts devoted to framegrabs of how Daffy Duck's beak turns into a vagina in "The Great Piggy Bank Robbery", let's take a look at another cartoon that's on the second Golden Collection.

I still haven't gotten over Gerry Chiniquy's anemic drawing style, but he definitely did some of the funniest animation in Friz Freleng's cartoons. I think the reason why the animation in Freleng's cartoons seems weaker (compared to the other Warner directors) is that he didn't rely on squash and stretch as much.

Here's a great example, a beautifully timed scene from "Bugs Bunny Rides Again" (1948).

Look at how funny these drawings are! You can find a lot more in this and other Freleng cartoons of the same period ("Bad Ol' Putty Tat" is another great one.)
